EMPIRE OF THE SUN

HIGH AND LOW

01 — THE FILM

Fun fact! The song “Walking on a Dream” by Empire of the Sun was used in our Honda Dreamer spot. The band had seen the spot and contacted us to create the music video for their reunion album.

We shot this music video in Costa Rica and there’s just not enough room on this page to tell all the crazy behind the scenes stories. Despite all the crazy jungle shoots, heavy rain, risky car maneuvering conditions and challenging weather we finally got to make our first music video!

This video is all about the joy of a group of people enjoying their moods and their energy connected to nature. The band is seen performing on top of our whimsical CG structures. The band members over the top personalities were a perfect match for these surroundings. The song is a hit and we brought our unique visuals to keep up with the sound. So many great stories behind the making of it that we’d be happy to share over a drink.
