Nexus Canada SPFX Music Videos Demo Reel
In 2012 NEXUS Canada was asked to blow a house up for the Our Lady Peace Music Video “Heavyweight”. After analyzing the property and obtaining permits, we designed the explosion to be a 5 stage blast combining high explosive in order to achieve a long lasting, visually pleasing explosion complete with the front door being shot away in the blast.
It took the six person special effects team 4 days to prepare the house and 2 additional days to wire and rig with explosive mortars. Several high speed cameras were positioned on cranes to capture the spectacular explosion.
