Never Gonna Be Alone

Love, loss and longing in a spellbinding hand-painted music video for the Grammy award-winning Jacob Collier’s single.

Directors: Shan Christopher Ogilvie & Ewa Smyk
Client: Universal Music Group

Bare Golly Films created a music video to accompany five time Grammy-winning artist Jacob Collier’s single ‘Never Gonna Be Alone’ (feat. Lizzy McAlpine & John Mayer).

‘Never Gonna Be Alone’ comprises a short film that explores the thematic nuances of the song, journeying through layers of love, loss and longing painstakingly realised in vibrant, hand-crafted, watercolour animation.

Utilising over 1200 individual paintings, complex in detail and colour, the music video features four extended continuous sequences of fluid frame-by-frame animation. It was created over 2 months by a team of nine, all working remotely.
