Wind guides woman through "a dream-like environment" in Doe Paoro music video

Music: London animator Jack Brown used oil pastels to create an animation of a woman on a journey of self discovery for Doe Paoro's The Wind track (+ movie).

The film depicts a story of an woman being carried through a series of situations by a blue-coloured counterpart.

"The story is of a woman who tries to find herself while the wind guides her through the dream like environment," Brown told Dezeen.

"She experiences all walks of life in an abstract perception of earth, wind, water and fire".

Throughout the film, the wind pushes the woman across many landscapes. She encounters an orange figure, based on fire, before falling into a pool of water.

The blue character is largely based on themes discussed in the lyrics, which were inspired by Doe Paoro's experience of a hurricane.

Brown created the visual effects using just oil pastels on paper, and an old Nikon camera – something he describes as "proper old school".

The video was his first project after he graduated from university, and took him three months to make.

"My desk was by my bed so I often woke up with oil pastels in all the wrong places," he said.
