Quite a while ago when joerud uploaded the amazing "Adieu!", I was so inspired by it that I wanted to try writing something in French, too. Later on I came up with this little tune, and Joe was kind enough to borrow his golden voice and sing it with me as a duet! :)
Il était une fois, il était une fois
J’entendais la melodie d’un pianiste
Et me souvenais l’époque où les histoires d’amour
n’étaient pas toujours aussi triste
Il était une fois il n'y a pas longtemps
Je connaissais un monde assez agréable
Les toutes petites choses étaient importantes
Et la vie était assez formidable
Mais le temps passe vite…
Il était une fois il y avait un jeu
Auquel on a joué encore et encore
Est-ce que tu t’en souviens, même un peu?
Comme on a tous les deux gagné, on était super fort!
Il était une fois, je te connaissais
Et presque pensais que je t’aimais
Il était une fois j’étais un con
Mais à défaut de ne rien avoir, j’ai au moins cette chanson
This is the version that played at Sundance 2012
It's just a quick song. And it's about people. Lots of people. And other things... maybe RE: The Road...
I left this intentionally bare because I wanted people to add as much as they could to it. So more vocals, more instruments, solo instrument section, anything! Stems up soon enough.
A major - 3/4 - 190bpm
People on form, people on time,
People magically on top of their shit,
People changing and I know for one I'll be a son of a gun if I don't change one bit to get where I end up,
People folding, people without an apetite,
People exiting things without saving them prior,
People know I'm not one for a show but I can't help but aim a bit higher,
I was told I should prepare for the best of days and best of days I'll get,
Can I be a fighter and a runner?
I'm not one of those gambling men, but I'm my safest bet, and I quite like roulette,
People don't show, people loco,
Why'd he run from the bun 'cause he's bored of the oven,
I can't stand people raising their hand as they tell me there's no such thing as lovin', they're just being stubborn,
I was told I shouldn't mind if they hammer at my head,
That's just the order we are placed in,
What else could I do but fight my own way through instead, to make some real good bread,
Hurry there's no time for wastin',
There are doctors, there are nurses,
There are killers and coppers and warriors even now,
You can think that you're fine then you blink and you're old and you've lost all your money,
And no one is talking and reading gets harder but you know the truth still,
People are people,
You know the truth still, people are people,
You know the truth still, weak and their feeble, people are people.
Over the past couple weeks Sojushots and I have been working on this. I hope you enjoy. Also wouldn't have happened without ppeppina and Jeff Peff for the music, thank you. I can't wait to hear the full orchestration.
Here is some better footage of me working and some blurry views of the final animations!
Thank you so much for the opportunity, I really love animating
