The Brief

I had the joy of being asked by my friend Like Mikes to create the music video for his new track “River Dance”. The song was about Mike’s personal trials and how he leant heavily on God to pull him through what was possibly the most painful period in his life.

The Process

I decided to visualise that as a journey on the road. I sketched up some illustrations in Adobe Photoshop based off some photos reference I took of Mike in his car. I stylised and refined the illustrations in Adobe Illustrator. I rigged and animated the animation using Adobe After Effects. Using Maxon Cinema 4D to model extra 3D assets & Adobe Animate to rotoscope. In the post production process I colour graded the video to further marry the 2D & 3D to give what I found a pleasingly unique look.

Where can I find Like Mike’s song?

Like Mikes – River Dance – Lyrics

Yeah yeah yeah

Yeah

Member looking at the judge I didn’t stand a chance
Catch the Holy Ghost it make me wanna River Dance
You like sushi I can take you down to Benihana
Let that iron sharpen iron you can be my charger
She wanna see the Eiffel Tower, take a trip to France
Baby we should take it slow, why you coming fast?
Say you wanna be my killy but without the mask
Imma always keep it trilly you don’t need ask

Feel like Alice when I’m looking through the looking glass
Put that blood on top my door the spirits going past
Heart broken so I had to mend it with a cast
Took a couple years I had go perfect the craft
Put that cross on top my back I’m going out with arms
Get the hammer and the nails and put it in my palms
Feel like David in my prime I’m writing all these Psalms
Put this knife inside my back but show me love It’s calm
On the narrow road walking like it’s Saints Row
In the Synagogue, yeah you know I’m going gold
Pray I’m only getting wiser when I’m getting old
All that pressure making diamonds but we never fold
Say she like the way rhyme boy you really cold
I ain’t picking up the phone when I’m on the road
Destiny inside my hands I had to take a hold
Till I finish saving souls I ain’t coming home

Member looking at the judge I didn’t stand a chance
Catch the Holy Ghost it make me wanna River Dance
You like sushi I can take you down to Benihana
Let that iron sharpen iron you can be my charger
She wanna see the Eiffel Tower, take a trip to France
Baby we should take it slow, why you coming fast?
Say you wanna be my killy but without the mask
Imma always keep it trilly you don’t need ask

All I wanted was a hunnid bands
Now I’m steady tryna follow Gods plan
On the run, from my sin, running man
Never tell the right hand ‘bout the other hand
My mumma took me back to see the motherland
So I can picture what my brothers never had
It’s a blessing that’s the best I ever had
Smith & Wesson like a bible in my bag
Reaching for eternal life I had to reach over
When I get to heavens gate don’t wanna peak over
bought my jammies in my bag so I can sleep over
Keep them demons out my mind I like to be sober
Said they riding with us but I think they play the fiddle
Had to pick a side I feel like Malcolm in the middle
Reunited with my son it feel like Stuart Little
Michael Jordan wit the rock my tongue out when I dribble

Member looking at the judge I didn’t stand a chance
Catch the Holy Ghost it make me wanna River Dance
You like sushi I can take you down to Benihana
Let that iron sharpen iron you can be my charger
She wanna see the Eiffel Tower, take a trip to France
Baby we should take it slow, why you coming fast?
Say you wanna be my killy but without the mask
Imma always keep it trilly you don’t need ask
