Basement - 'Stigmata'
Official music video for Basement’s new single ‘Stigmata’. Taking inspiration from graphic novels, we used mainly traditional animation to depict the songs lyrics in their simplest form. The minimal colours, contrasting shadows and repeat movements highlight the songs underlying expression of anxiety and fear.​​​​​​​
​​​​​​​‘Stigmata’ by Basement
The holes in my palms are just like a miniature stigmata.
As the colour drains from my fingers, I’m reminded of the fear.

It feels like we’re falling in the dark.

Can you see through my best behaviour?
Can you see I’m ill from fear of failure?

It feels like we’re falling in the dark.

I can feel the sickness, taking over my senses.
I’ll give in to darkness, in hopes I can forget.

It feels like we’re falling in the dark.

The majority of the film is frame by frame animation using TVPaint. 
It is animated on '4s' to create a slight rotoscopic effect throughout.
