SPY VS FLY by Dr. Van

Artist Statement:  The song SPY VS FLY is the gateway to my sophomore album, DEUX, and was the perfect sound for me to utilize my background in animation and filmmaking. Most people think that I had a green screen or motion tracked myself, but this is 100% computer animated from the ground up. The main programs that I use are Cinema 4D for modeling, animation, and rendering, After Effects for fine tuning and compositing, and Adobe Premiere Pro for editing and exporting. It took me several weeks to roughly storyboard the idea and the end goal was to completely immerse the viewer into Dr. Van’s universe. My objective was to maintain a sense of mystery while telling a visual story that felt connected to the atmospheric sounds of the track. I plan on continuing to utilize my skill set and explore these fabricated realms to reveal who Dr. Van is and where he is headed.

The Storm by Latroy

In All My Glory by Donovan Funk

In All My Glory is a song I wrote in response to the moments where I feel no motivation. It seems especially hard these days just to get out of bed, but after finally dragging myself into the living room I was able to cope with those feelings through this creation. I hope that it validates similar feelings that listeners have because every struggles with doing what needs to get done and that’s okay
