Sky’s artist biweekly

A counterpoint to the animations that have definitive characters and show a unique story, the music video for “The Fatalist” by Dark Tranquillity (no that’s not spelled wrong) shows an emphasis on a changing and constantly evolving character. With a simplistic high-contrast black-and-white style, a foreboding, imposing figure that helps to emphasize the dark mood of the music. The recurring symmetry serves to accentuate the instances where it is broken, and the sudden flash of red text during the chorus breaks the norm even more powerfully.
