The Australian electronic duo Empire Of The Sun has released their ‘On Our Way Home EP’. WOW was in charge of MV direction and production for the track ‘Way To Go’.
Their journey dives deep into mental spirituality and blends with the world beyond the dimension. With the motif of “faces” representing individual identities, it shows how it changes into psychedelic in chaos while diving deep into spirituality.
The face of Empire Of The Sun was recreated in CG by using photo scans. 400 markers were placed on their faces to captures nuances of their fine facial expressions while they sang. The captured data, along with CG data of faces acquired through photo scans, was used together with motion capture data in the actual shooting to create it.
In the behind-the-scenes movie, parts of the production process are introduced.
