Budget was 45k euro - for the shoot. Visual effects budget was a grand total of zeeero. I designed Blinky, modeled him in 3D and played both the his voice and the body mocap performance. And did most of the VFX. Thankfully all footage of me in the skintight mocap suit has been permanently destroyed.
Visual effects were completed over a period of 9 months, of hell. There's a reason why you don't see too many wet CG characters in movies even with 100 million dollar budgets. It's really, really hard.
”Midnight City” is the first single of the forthcoming album of M83 ”Hurry up, We're Dreaming”.
The music video is directed by Fleur & Manu (Division/Les Télécréateurs ) to whom we owe Sébastien Tellier's ”Roche” and ”Sexual Sportswear” as well as Bag Raiders' ”Sunlight.
This video is a tribute to Village of the Damned, Close encounters of the Third kind and other Akiras.
