Desert Mountain Tribe released their debut album last year, and its a wonderfully ambitious slice of space rock.

But they’re not about to stop there. Album highlight ‘Interstellar’ has received the video treatment, and it’s a spectacular, effect-laden clip. “It’s effectively made to look like one single shot – going from wide to super close up, with the band rotating on a stage, speeding up and slowing down in a sort of Matrix effect, with lights flashing and streaking totally in sync with the music. Along with my Director of Photography Daniel Turner (Sound & Colour): , I’ve developed a way to use multiple cameras to make a super-huge frame that we can zoom in and out of, and a way to time all the effects to the music.”

“To be able to shoot, months of pre-vis (3D animation before shooting) was needed to plan out how the effects would work/transition, and provide an eventual shot-list/lighting plan (similar to how they achieved lighting effects in Gravity). Then after the filming, many hundreds of loops were generated to provide a framework for the post, and a lot of time-based code expressions had to be written in order to manipulate the relationship between the visuals and time, in the context of the track.”
