Foxes new video for ‘Holding onto Heaven’, sees the ‘Youth’ singer channelling her inner introvert and extrovert in two different versions of the same retro-tinged dance. With a lonely looking Foxes on one side and a happy dancing Foxes on the other... brought together by the Rushes VFX team.
VFX Supervisor Leo Weston comments on the project, “I pre-vised all of the FX shots in Flame first with Henry (Dir) to work out what camera moves would be possible. We then matched the moves on set. The scene was shot first with green screen from head height upwards. The moves were then flipped on the motion control rig and shot again on the same set. We flipped one of the plates upside-down again in Flame and joined the two scenes together, with due attention and care taken to smooth over the joins and remove the tracks for the rig. I think the final effect works really well.”
