Music Video - Charles X "Can You Do it"

Charles X - Can You Do it from Parallel on Vimeo.

This music video is the perfect example of artistic creativity being used to elegantly represent reality by simplifying shapes. And the colour palette. Absolutely gorgeous.

Details from Vimeo page:
Music video directed for the charismatic LA-born musician Charles X for his eagerly anticipated new single entitled Can You Do It in mixed 3D/2D animation produced by Eddy and animated at Brunch Studio. 
This collaboration is intended to act as a social commentary which aims to cast light on perceived societal expectations and social norms by integrating elements and people from different walks of life. 
I sought to merge the typically highbrow sport of horse racing with the commonly misrepresented “mean streets” of Pacoima, the proud birthplace of Charles X, to challenge any stereotypes or preconceptions of race and social class which may exist in modern day society. 
I wanted to communicate Charles’ intended message via the lens of an artificial world in my own style of animation. 
"Can You Do It" is now available on Charles X's new album, "Sounds of the Yesteryear":
