I haven’t labored in tour manufacturing/design since NIN 2014, however I at all times stated I’d return to it someday if the fitting artist and the fitting inventive connection got here round.

My spouse and collaborator Steph, who produced the undertaking, arrange a uncooked studio house right here in Tacoma and assembled a lean native digital camera crew, and we spent two months filming within the experimental, open-ended, DIY type that I wish to work.

With macro lenses and the 1000fps Ember slow-motion digital camera (made by implausible native Washington firm Freefly), we adopted paths of inspiration by means of components and states of matter: Gentle refractions, chemical reactions, fluid dynamics, incandescent projections (together with an outdated overhead projector that ended up within the present) and different experimental setups tracing the connective tissue of the universe. It was prolific and intense, and wouldn’t have been doable with out Steph’s fast problem-solving and a gifted digital camera, animation, and post-prod staff.”

I’ll have much more to say about this manufacturing, the distinctive analog sensible VFX we employed, and naturally movies to share as extra folks begin to see the reveals and I perhaps get ten seconds to breathe. For now, I’m off to Portland – present quantity three is tonight!”
