60 beautiful rocks and gems from around the world come to life through the use of dynamic and kinetic effects in this colorful, majestic music video for Michna and MNDR‘s song “Solid Gold“. Designer Christophe Thockler created the music video, which mixes both stop-motion and motion design, with over 8,500 photos that explore the beautiful textures and colors of the rocks and gems. A list of each rock featured and photos from the video are available to view on Thockler’s website.
Michna and I have at least two common points, we love good music and rocks! When we started to discuss about a music video for the track Solid Gold, we quickly talked about minerals and how we loved them. I had a small collection and we soon decided to do some tests and go in this direction. Solid Gold is another exploration of a theme I am fond of, the search of the beauty in the mundane. I like to think about the idea that the casting of this video is made of ancient majestic characters from all around the world, it’s also a tribute to nature, with small bits of our planet dancing together during three minutes.
