GALACTIC

MARVL

For the music label Armada, founded by Armin van Buuren, we made a series of videoclips for the mysterious artist ‘Galactic Marvl’.

TRANSMISSION 001
What a long, strange journey, stars and galaxies passing by.
Finally made my way to this beautiful place.
Hello my friends, where have you been?
It’s time to begin again…

It was with these lines that Armada Music approached us. Galactic Marvl, a mysterious American producer-duo, would soon release their first tracks on the well-known label. Armada Music asked us to make a series of videoclips based on one storyline. Three short stand-alone animations. Later, hiphop producer Gramatik also asked us to make another videoclip for his collaboration with the duo.

Process

Together with our creative team we wrote the entire story of Galactic Marvl. Despite our room for creative interpretation, we had a clear image of the style: an animated comic book. To match this style we went on a hunt for the right illustrator and found Fernando Leon. Together we created a cool style around the cute Galactic Marvl character. What really makes these animated movies stand out is the fact that they were edited like a movie. It’s more than just beautiful illustrations and fluent animations, it’s a real movie. Strengthened by sound effects and cliffhangers.

Gramatik x Galactic Marvl – ‘Voyager Twins’

The true gem of the project. After the first three clips, Gramatik made us to go all out. Once again, we teamed up with the talented Fernando Leon and developed a whole new style, without losing the feeling of the other clips. This videoclip is in some ways a prologue to the the other clips and a nice place to start off the series.
