Finally the music video for the single Shiva of mexican indie-instrumental band Austin TV is out and in rotation of regular broadcast of MTV Latin America and some other local TV music shows, I directed the video and did all the art used and a very talented guy named Diego Huacuja helped out with the animation and compositing, all was done in an intense record time of one month and everybody evolved in the project is very happy with the final result.
The story is based in an original idea of the fine mates from Austin TV, the booklet of the album it comes with a bunch of pages with sketches and stories written by this fictional character named Mario Lupo and the video tells just one of these surreal stories, when he and his xoloscuincle dog, Kerdoc, went to take a walk and accidentally fell in a subterranean magical forest that at the end results in the Devil's cave.
