The Chemical Brothers Go Behind The Scenes Of 'Wide Open' Video

(Purple) Chemical Brothers have released a behind the scenes clip for their "Wide Open" featuring Beck video which was directed by their long-term video collaborators dom&nic. We were sent the following details:

This video gives a fascinating insight into the technological complexity of the piece and how the choreographer, dancer and VFX Team at The Mill collaborated to create the final, stunning visual.

Dom&nic's vision was to merge the mechanical and organic, having been inspired by procedural cellular structures; the VFX Team at The Mill 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. Dom&nic have made an abundance of legendary videos including David Bowie & Trent Reznors' 'I'm Afraid of Americans' and 'Ava Adore' by The Smashing Pumpkins. Watch the behind the scenes clip here.
