We all thought that the first half of 2020 would be dominated by topics like "Coronavirus", "Social Distancing", "Empty Places", and anything similar to that. None of us would have thought at the beginning of this year that these things will even be a part of the so-called "New Normal" during all 2020 and probably beyond. The Music Video of the Official Remix of Hans Zimmer and Alan Walker picks up the strange and never-seen-before-feeling of these days and adds by this also its own chapter to the red (story)line that goes through all Alan Walker Videos.
It has been a pleasure for us to help MER Recordings out with the VFX work and some last-minute retouches in times when almost nothing was sure and neither locations would be open for a shoot nor postproduction processes could be done in person during the lockdown. It's been a great challenge and a very interesting project as well as a proof that remote VFX -or remotevfx- is one big part of the new normal as well.
Working from our base in Phuket, Thailand with all the incoming project peers has never been more fun than during these times. With MER Recordings we were happy to welcome our first client from Norway and at that time didn't know about how many more great things would come so very soon after this adventure. So please stay tuned for more.
