A theatrical opera unfolds between heaven and hell in this fully animated video for Joji by  Brooklyn-based director and artist Saad Moosajee (previously featured here). Narrated through a series of otherworldly vignettes that echo living chiaroscuro paintings, “777” is a dance driven display featuring agents of the afterlife conversing through movement. The film was created in quarantine using an experimental combination of realtime motion capture and hundreds of animated lights, click here to check out the making-of.
