Swedish classic/progressive rock supergroup THE NIGHT FLIGHT ORCHESTRA (featuring members of SOILWORK and ARCH ENEMY) have teamed up with Classic Rock to premiere the animated music video for the band’s brand new single, ‘Gemini’.
The video was created by Elia Cristofoli aka Solingo who has worked for companies such as Volvo, Subaru and Canon in the past and also the compositors Francesco Mazzola and Andrea Vozzo of Peach Studio.
Commented singer Björn Strid: “Elia has done a terrific job capturing the vibe of this song with his amazing animations. He had one month to complete it and worked day and night. This video showcases a relationship drama set in space, with an epic twist. The colours and the characters are amazing and also very mysterious. My personal perception of the animation is a slight He-Man-goes-to-Russia feel (Or is it She-Ra??). Absolutely fantastic! Enjoy!”
Added Cristofoli: “When Björn asked me for a fully-cartoon music video in 80’s style, with so many intergalactic babes destroying alien monsters, a joker grin drew on my face… I love 80’s cartoons like He-Man, Ken Shiro, etc. Then David sent me the script with a storyboard. I read their story. These guys are out of control, I thought. Just as I like! I spent a few days studying the design of the characters and the spaceships, then I started drawing like a psychopath. I figure I was amused. I hope NFO fans like the video. Rock on!”
‘Gemini‘ comes off the band’s upcoming, third studio album, ‘Amber Galactic‘, and can be viewed here: http://nblast.de/TNFOGeminiVideo
