Another smashing music video from Dutch director Nils Muhlenbruch aka the mastermind at Drifter TV. We asked Nils to tell us more about his work for Walden’s “Intropial” “Bigbeat Records contacted me because they saw my music video ‘Fix Me Up‘ by Drifter TV. They where looking for an animation artist that could make a visualizer in the spirit of Daftpunk’s Interstella clip. Walden was releasing a track called ‘CIACO’ and had a basic idea about the contents of the promo. Because of the Sci-fi storyline and setting, I was immediately interested.” The result, according to Nils, was not so much of a music video but more like “a sneak preview in to a world and underlying story”. Happy with the outcome, Bigbeat commissioned a second video, this time for Walden’s track “Intropial”. As a second installment of the same universe, the promo needed to be more elaborated and cohesive. “We lay out a storyline about a resistance movement in an alien world that rebel against a big corporation.” Nils concludes: “All communication about the video went trough the record company, I never spoke the artist in person. So you could say that the making of this video was a ‘galactic’ undertaking  with people living on three sides of a globe (Amsterdam, Sydney and New York) making a promo about an alien planet.” Read more about retro science fiction music videos.

    2Pause | Freezing Music Video Culture

    The world of music videos has traditionally provided a perfect breeding ground to test new visual styles, VFX and editing techniques. It has also proven to be an extraordinary springboard for some of todays most acclaimed film directors, such as Spike Jonze, Baz Luhrmann and Michel Gondry, to name but three. 2Pause is the second installment of our curated music video website. The old Pause website is still online here.
