RACHAEL SAGE RELEASES ANIMATED LYRIC VIDEO FOR "LOREENA"
Video Features Collaboration With Illustrator Dan Paul Roberts
New York, NY: Award-winning recording artist Rachael Sage is proud to debut this moving lyric video for her song "Loreena". The animated film was crafted by Honolulu based visual artist Dan Paul Roberts and his protégé, Jazmine Uyehara. This is the first lyric video from Sage's new album, Choreographic, which was released May 20th. The audio for "Loreena" originally premiered on Curve Magazine.
Inspired by the dance theme of Sage's new album, video creators Dan Paul and Jazmine pieced together a storyline drawn from the lyrics of the song. After that, Dan Paul worked on the storyboards while Jazmine oversaw character design and thematic development. The both created the finished illustrations.
The story of "Loreena" follows our main character, Hope, as she travels back to her hometown - where she pays a visit to Loreena, a childhood friend estranged by time, distance and the choices life has pushed upon them. The short film explores themes of freedom vs responsibility, and the nature of friendship, family, and the complexities of life and relationships.
