Beck and the Chemical Brothers Go Transparent in ‘Wide Open’ Video
It's a track taken from last year's 'Born in the Echoes'
The Chemical Brothers and Beck collaborated last year on the Born in the Echoes track “Wide Open,” and today they released a video to go with the song. Directed by Chemicals favorites Dom & Nic, the clip features a dancer moving to and fro around a warehouse, only as she undulates, her body begins to… well, change. Here’s the vision behind the “Wide Open” video:
Dom&nic’s vision was to merge the mechanical and organic, having been inspired by procedural cellular structures; their VFX Team created a full CG model of the dancer, Sonoya Mizuno, comprising of 107 individual anatomic rigs, as well as bespoke tools to allow the seamless transformation which happens during the dance.
