- STILLS FROM WORK
- This video was created for the UK Progressive Metal Band, TesseracT, taken from the album "One", Century Media Records, 2011. Produced by Escape Plan Productions. Featuring new vocalist Elliot Coleman in this completely new version of "Eden".
They were interested in the visual style presented in Empyrean and approached Ganesh Rao and myself to create a music video for their re-release of their song Eden featuring their new vocalist, Elliot Coleman (hence the 2.0). For this piece, I was in charge of creating a look that mimicked Empyrean but had to be done so on an incredibly small budget. Much of the lighting used in Eden were clamp lights, which I heavily diffused, and inexpensive paper lanterns. Overall, the entire video with lit on a budget of about $600.In post, I created the cube, matching camera angles and animating it. The glowing was done with a combination of practical lighting effects and CG compositing. The actual model's glow was achieved through compositing but the glow on the actors came from a 500W daylight balanced bulb, which had to be composited out. .
