Back When You Were Beautiful is based on a song by band No-Man. The film centres around an old man and follows him on a nostalgic journey through a lifetime of memories.
No-Man’s music is very emotive and raw and I wanted to create a story that would reflect this. I had the idea of creating an old man character that had lived, loved and lost. He is forgotten and alone in the world except for reflections of the past.
This was my very first full length venture into 3D animation and so took longer than the rest. The software I used was Cinema 4D and I designed and modelled all of the scenes from scratch. It was produced in my spare time over the course of 7 months.
