Bliss n Eso: “Circus In The Sky” Album Trailer
ROLE: Director / Producer / FIlm / Edit
DELIVERY: Cinematic film style trailer to promote the new Bliss n Eso album ‘Circus In The Sky’ through viral online media.
PROJECT: Remixing a popular Animatrix short film, Bliss n Eso wanted to create a visually exciting film that brings their famous winged character to real life. On a relatively small budget, many aspects of film making were pulled together to create the visually exciting piece in the centre of Sydney city, on the roof of the QT hotel. The especially large challenge of creating animated wings in a real life scene was the key factor that the entire project relied on, in the end a team of animators led by animation expert Marc Purnell achieved the incredible results.
TASKS: Storyboard and refine the overall film from it’s early concept stages. Source the very specific and hard to access locations for filming, including a school and rooftop in the centre of Sydney. Source 25+ extras for filming, acting as school students, teachers and special agents. Manage, direct and shoot 2 full days of location filming with up to 40 cast and crew at some times. Direct and work closely with a team of animators on the final animation elements including the characters wings, energy blasts, location composites and masking. Edit and colourgrade final feature video. Work with SFX and music specialists to create the foley sounds, intro score and final mix as heard in the video.
