PONZA - Gold & Round (Music Video)

2018

For the music video of "Gold & Round" we have collaborated with director Yigit Evgar to create a imagenary world with the reference of b-type / fantastic movies. I have created the storyline taking the lyrics as our basis and shaped the concept with Yigit.

The shootings were made at Sazak Village which was abondened in 1920's. Strong winds crushed and shaped the man made structures and created a trippy sight which was the place we were dreaming at production design. 

The story takes place at an imaginary kingdom. The foolish king doesn't understand the enlightening power of the mysterious golden object ascending from heavens and starts a war with his people. The rest is history in different forms.

I was the co-director and post production / compositing artist in this project and mainly used the beloved plug-in called "Saber" from Video Co-Pilot for the special powers of the villagers.

PS: That shaman bird is me.
