When landscapes will have no more trees and birds to show, this will be the last beautiful thing to watch in the world. – "Clair de lune" is a French poem written by Paul Verlaine in 1869. It is the inspiration for the third and most famous movement of Claude Debussy's 1890 Suite bergamasque. – Antique litography style used to remind us the Art Deco posters from the beginning of last century. This technique requires a different layer pass for each solid ink. Then, the layers are color multiplied and barely offseted so we can see how they interact over the paper. – – – CLAIR DE LUNE (ORIGINAL POEM) Votre âme est un paysage choisi Que vont charmant masques et bergamasques Jouant du luth et dansant et quasi Tristes sous leurs déguisements fantasques. Tout en chantant sur le mode mineur L'amour vainqueur et la vie opportune Ils n'ont pas l'air de croire à leur bonheur Et leur chanson se mêle au clair de lune, Au calme clair de lune triste et beau, Qui fait rêver les oiseaux dans les arbres Et sangloter d'extase les jets d'eau, Les grands jets d'eau sveltes parmi les marbres. – – – MOONLIGHT (ENGLISH VERSION) Your soul is a chosen landscape Where charming masquerades and dancers are promenading, Playing the lute and dancing, and almost Sad beneath their fantastic disguises. While singing in a minor key Of victorious love, and the pleasant life They seem not to believe in their own happiness And their song blends with the moonlight, With the sad and beautiful moonlight, Which sets the birds in the trees dreaming, And makes the fountains sob with ecstasy, The tall slim water streams among the marble statues – – – #MarcGuardiola #landscape #maxon #aftereffects #cinema4d #clairdelune #moonlight #birds #moon #litography #poem #motiongraphics #motiondesign #VFX #filmmaker #3danimation #top #mograph #design #amazing #artwork #debussy #art #beautiful #animation #cg #composition #mograph #howiseedatworld #music – @motiondesigners @motiongraphics_collective @motiongraphics_p @howiseedatworld @beninmadrid @xuxoe @thecolorshift @3d_collection_showcase @3danimationdesign

我母親向來有一個帶點神秘的〈Clair de lune〉音樂盒。在我很小的時候,我總是在那個音樂盒前呆上許多個小時,完全被這首歌的情感力量所吸引⋯⋯

關於「 Clair de lune」|For “Clair de lune”

1. //當地平線上不再有樹木和小鳥時,這將是世上留存的最後一樣美麗的事物。//這句話真是太美了,它來自你自己還是你在其他地方看到的?|//When landscapes will have no more trees and birds to show, this will be the last beautiful thing to watch in the world.// it’s such a beautiful sentence, is it come from you or you read it somewhere else? 

It came from me, indeed. Actually this is something I think very often…

2.你的這段動畫背後有什麼故事嗎?或據你所知,這首歌背後有什麼故事嗎?| Is there any stories behind your animation? Or any stories behind the song itself so far as you know? 

是的。我父親是一位著名畫家,70 年代期間曾在「Equipo Crónica」團隊工作。他曾向我展示一些印刷技術,例如石版畫,於是我嘗試將這種印刷風格融入自己的動畫作品中。在 2020 年,我的目標是用這種風格來深入製作更多動畫作品。關這首歌⋯⋯我母親向來有一個帶點神秘的〈Clair de lune〉音樂盒。在我很小的時候,我總是在那個音樂盒前呆上許多個小時,完全被這首歌的情感力量所吸引。
Yes. My father was a famous painter who worked in ‘Equipo Crónica’ team during the decade of 70s. He showed me some printing techniques like the lithograph which I tried to evoque in my animation style. For 2020 my aim is to go deeper with this look with other animations. About the song… my mother has always had a little secret music box with that song. Since I was a very little child, I’ve always spent many hours in front of that box totally charmed by the emotional power of this song.

3.縮略圖上的女巫是誰?她為什麼不出現在動畫中?|Who is the witch on the thumbnail? Why isn’t she appear on the animation?

Wow! No idea, it wasn’t any witch, actually. It must have been an optical effect!! even now I can’t see her!
