Matt Meilner, a 2012 Bethany media arts graduate, recently designed and animated this music video for Ivan Ives, an artist and friend he met through his day job working as a junior creative at the Los Angeles branch of Digital Kitchen. Matt created the animation using Adobe After Effects and Cinema 4D.

“This video was a nice break from client work, which let me take some liberties that many other projects wouldn’t allow,” said Matt of the experience. “After chatting with Ivan for a while, we decided on a narrative around an astronaut and his fickle stream of consciousness. It was something I could I have fun with and complete within the time frame.”

After completing the video in roughly two weeks, Matt is once again consumed with agency work. But he tells us to stay tuned for more side collaborations to come in the next few months!
