Small time-frame

4 days of production

 

The music video had to be created in 4 days, it was quite a challenge, but I was ready to clutch this through.

Concept

A soldier running away in the desert

 

With the song depicting an evolution from the will of deserting into the will to fight, Wei and Hosea had the idea of a music video with a soldier running away in the desert.

With the extremely tight schedule, I offered a video loop of 20 seconds repeating itself about 9 times with some explosion going offscreen.

During the production, I used some smart trickery to add to the mix of different environments by playing with the outputted light passes.

It allowed to add additional depth, avoid repetitiveness and create extremely quickly sceneries for the different parts of the song.

Animation

Behind the Scenes

To create the loop I used some trickery to create a sensation of movement, all that without needing to animate a continuous moving camera on the z axis.

THE TRICK

a CGI treadmill

 

The trick that allowed quick turnarounds was a foreground on a treadmill. Basically, I wrapped the FG plane around a spline and animated the offset position from 0 to 100%. Everything else in the environment is static. The cut is hidden with shallow DOF, and a looping camera plus a looping run cycle from Mixamo allowed a perfect loop on 20sec.
