Eric Prydz “NITON” Music Video

Eric Prydz commissioned Immersive to create a music video for a new release and I was given the role of lead animator, producer and editor as well as being responsible for collaborating with Immersive’s creative director, John Munro, to create the storyboard and the overall look and concept of the video. I was in a team of 7 animators and the scenes I worked on can be viewed in the images below. The brief was very open, so the idea was to go down the route of a dreamlike journey that follows one character through many different surreal environments. The style of the video was inspired by Japanese Anime as well as certain graphic novels and surrealist artwork.

COL3TRANE ‘TYLER’ MUSIC VIDEO

Heres the fresh new UK RnB Artist, Col3tranes’ new music video for his latest track, ‘Tyler’
It was shot on a Motion Control Rig by Stink Films London. A great concept where Col3trane himself plays 2 characters, similar to the title Character ‘Tyler’ Durden from the cult CLASSIC movie, Fight Club. I was tasked with editing the video to make sure the shots were seemless and create the illusion that Col3tranes alter ego was sharing the same space as him. I also did the VFX / compositing / glass window replacement etc for all the green screen shots, to give the illusion that the caravan was moving through the country side. Technically challenging but ultimately rewarding.

Vancouver Sleep Clinic Music Video “Someone To Stay”

I recently worked with Agile Films once again to create some super subtle VFX elements for Vancouver Sleep Clinic’s new music video for a track entitled “Someone To Stay”.

When I say subtle, I mean subtle. The initial shots of the video just required tiny amounts of dust particles floating around the lead signer’s hands which he interacts with. Initially I started with a look that was more detailed and had slight elements of colour, but the directors comments were always “less dust”.

The look she was going for was an understated approach which complimented the style of the video. As the video progresses the dust becomes a ghostly entity which the singer eventually wrestles with. I also worked on some clean up of some unwanted elements in the original footage and in total probably worked on around 30 shots.

These kinds of minimal VFX jobs are always the toughest as they require so much minor attention to detail, but can be the most satisfying as well. I really enjoyed the challenge and the client and band were over the moon with the end result. Check out some stills from the video below, which include some close ups of the hands showing some more detailed look developments from early on in the project.
