The LA based hip hop duo The Seige asked me to create some CG sequences for their music video for the song “Back Up”.
The animations of the faces and the LED Walls on the background were done in After Effects, I animated the dance choreography and camera transitions in C4D and rendered it on Octane. There was not enough time to render actual volumetrics so I faked those in AE by using the 3D camera data to create accurate masks for the LED Walls and Trapcode Shine for some god rays.
