S4 Studios ICVFX team & stage were chosen as the destination to film Daughtry’s new music video “Artificial”. Chris Daughtry and crew were filmed on our LED stage using an Unreal Engine virtual location of the apocalyptical sort. Prepping the Unreal environment and prep took about 2 weeks and the shoot was completed over 2 days. We utilized foreground set decoration elements like pillars, rocks, cables, smoke, etc… meticulously integrated and lit to match our 3D world. ICVFX has totally revolutionized our services, allowing productions to shoot final pixel on the day without a lengthy post production compositing process and had editors cutting the next day. S4 did additional VFX for set extensions and a 3D cyborg face integrated into Chris Daughtry’s face for the final scenes.
We want to thank our client KNR Productions for bringing us this wonderful opportunity!
