Kicking off his Cool As Hell Headline Tour tonight at his sold out first Melbourne show, Baker Boy today drops an alternative animated video for his single ‘Cool As Hell’.
The Cool As Hell (Streetlight Edit) Video works with the original ‘Cool As Hell’ video which was directed by Gabriel Gasparinatos and filmed in Sydney. The alternative version is adapted by Spanish 2D animator Sergio Garcia Perez, who uses only the city night time scenes, reworking them with hand drawn illustrations on each frame to create a glowing night time dance clip.
As explained by Sergio, “I use my computer & drawing screen. Each frame in a 2D animation involves multiple single drawings - basically I draw over the main video, and later I add colour grading and glow effects to my drawings to get the final colour form.”
The Cool As Hell Tour begins tonight in Melbourne and then heads to Newcastle, Sydney, Alice Springs and finally the Boomerang Festival within Byron Bay’s Bluesfest Festival. The line-up of indigenous artists will also include Archie Roach and Yothu Yindi & The Treaty Project.
‘Cool As Hell’ was written by Baker Boy, along with Hip Hop greats Thundamentals and writer/producer Carl Dimataga.
