DAVE MATTHEWS BAND



Spring Shoe Animation produced animated video content for the Dave Matthews Band 2013 summer tour.  The Song that Jane likes is one of the band's oldest songs for which all new content needed to be created.  The four minute animation is played on a 60 foot wide screen behind the band.  I had the opportunity to meet Dave and discuss the ideas for the song.  Dave is very personable and downright hilarious.  I showed him some very rough sketches of some characters and some of the sequences I had in mind.  He was completely open to my interpretation to the lyrics and threw in some good ideas as well.

My mother had died the week before, so the imagery is probably a bit more melancholy than the music itself.   The production time was about three weeks, which is really tight for 4 minutes or animation.  Many long nights went into this one, and the final files were delivered a day or so before the tour kicked off in Dallas.
