Moby 'My Only Love' by Zombie
After winning a D&AD pencil for their film for the Born Free Foundation, Brazilian animation studio Zombie has now collaborated with Moby with a shattering take on a subject close to their hearts - the rampant destruction of the Amazon rainforest.
In a story created entirely in CGI, the video for My Only Love chronicles the heartbreaking separation of a leopard and her cub, as the forest is terrifyingly razed to the ground around them. What you see in the film is a meticulously recreated version of the real rainforest - the same plants, animals and landscape, perfectly replicated in stunning 3D animation.
It's a work of imagination, that could only be created in animation, in order to tell the story of a catastrophe. It is not much of a spoiler, to reveal that there is no happy ending in this scenario. But the real impact is the powerful feeling it leaves with the viewer. It does not shirk from a difficult but unavoidable conclusion: the bad guys are winning.
• Moby has announced a live Twitch event taking place on August 5th at 9pm, BST. During the program, he will be joined by the Zombie team along with other guests to discuss the realities of deforestation as a result of animal agriculture.
“To work with someone who I’ve always admired is an incredible opportunity in itself. It’s made even better when the task he gives is to send a message to the world about the deforestation problem growing fast in my home country of Brazil.
"Lots of artists gave their best to make this music video happen. Beautiful music, strong visuals, amazing storytelling, it’s got everything we love most at Zombie.”
The goal of this video was to remind people of the ongoing horrors of climate emergency and deforestation.
“It seems as if we’re confronted with new catastrophes on an almost daily basis, but while we deal with these horrors the climate emergency just gets worse and worse. And without the rainforests our planet will quickly become a scorching, uninhabitable wasteland.
"The goal of this video was to remind people of the ongoing horrors of climate emergency and deforestation, as well as reminding people that 90% of rainforest deforestation is a result of meat and dairy production.”
