The Chemical Brothers
A VFX sequence for the Chemical Brothers and their 2018-2019 World Tour.
Marcus Lyall & Adam Smith, the show directors for the Chemical Brothers, were developing a visual concept for the track "Keep On" and looking to create a 3D abstract character driven by Mocap.
They approached us to develop a CG character that could be driven with Motion capture supplied by Imaginarium.
The aim was to create a dramatic visual to work as a counterpoint to the bright pink costume design of Kate Tabor that feature in the intro of the video. Something horror, pagan, unusual and modern.
The result was a dark and distrubing character voicing the bridge and breakdown sections of the track.
The visuals and costume design for the track later went on the be displayed in the Design Museum's "Electronic" exhibition about the history of electronic music.
