Although not our main creative outlet, GRAFX isn’t averse to producing the odd music video or two. To help with the release of the first single from their debut EP ‘Alive’, GRAFX, in partnership with Director Dennis Liu, created a music video for North of Nine based on the concept of love-inspired illnesses. Starring model Charlotte Mckinney as a doctor attempting to diagnose and treat the boys’ conditions, the video is full of fanciful scenes created and composited in-house, from fiery passion to invisible men. Although do try not to get the song stuck in your head, as we don’t have the cure for that.
With upwards of 15 individual effects shots, the range of VFX goes from green-screen keying, to object removal, particle simulations, screen replacement and UI integration.
As useful as fire is, on set it's a health & safety nightmare. A mixture of live footage and particle systems were used to create realistic looking flames, without the risk of immolating the talent.
From fiery passion to the frigid cold of heartbreak, multiple layers combine in these shots to create a suitably frosty, lovelorn effect to bring the piece to a final resolution.
