Music festival organizer Future Sound Asia (FSA) approached us to do a promo video and once again we are lucky enough to be given an open brief as long as it has something to do with light trails, light painting or anything of that sort. When I heard that Smashing Pumpkins is going to be the headliner, the first question I asked to the client was "Are we going to get any free tickets?"
Drawing inspiration from VJ Suave (vjsuave.com
) and Motiofixo (motiofixo.com
) we derived our little own version of projection bombing video with some hipster cartoon characters designed by our very own talented Kit Khong, which were then translated into a collaborative effort with graphic designers Little Ideas Everyday (wearenotlie.com
) for the concert posters.
What ensues then was a crazy journey of animation, shooting, shrink-wrapping musical instruments, projection mapping, more shooting, editing, clean-ups, color grading and more editing. Big thanks to everyone involved in this project, especially Ben Law, Ramesh Ramakrishnan and Alman, the guys from FSA who believe in us!
