Elenor Kopka animates eerily divining new video for Timber Timbre's "Grifting"
German-based illustrator and animator, Elenor Kopka, has produced an eerie video for Canadian folk group, Timber Timbre, and their track "Grifting" taken from their brand new record, Sincerely, Future Pollution, released last week.
"Grifting" carries with it this sort of mysterious, psychedelic funk beat alongside Taylor Kirk's subdued vocals, and Kopka, renowned for her dark and grainy visual displays, perfectly envisions this spooky atmosphere that immediately springs to mind when listening to the track. Kopka described her vision for the track's video as a "swampy, seaside village in the 1980s with a group of people meeting up for a shady basement game of poker" - the graphics manifest themselves to this exact vision.
And, as designers do, Kopka has run away with the concept of this video, transforming her initial ideas of a basement poker session into a chilling tarot ordeal, complete with trippy symbolism and hallucinatory themes. She describes that later on in the design process, ideas of tarot imagery and fortune telling sprung to mind as she attempted to alter the perception of a normal poker match, and overhaul it with "occult symbolism".
