This year we believe we’ve taken our usually entrancing promo videos up to the next level of psychedelic fantasy – with the help of some interesting techniques from our friends at BX404
March 2019 // Cornstarch + Food Colouring + Speaker:
To create the writhing mass of tentacles you saw on your phone, laptop or tablet screen, we used the special non-newtonian properties of corn starch mixed with water. This preparation, although water like in appearance, solidifies when force is imparted on it; and what better way to do this than with sound waves through a speaker?
Using different colours, consistencies and different sound frequencies caused the cornstarch to react differently to give us the variation of movement in the solution.
This, combined with some super high definition slo-mo from Swehttam’s camera and some fancy editing gave us the March promo video:
May/June 2019: Fishtank + Ink + Props
For these two videos we decided to use the medium of water, with some fun props, this wasn’t without its funny moments however, thanks to Sleazy Wonder….
Then, props ready in the tank, we added the ink, which has a different density to water and gives some super trippy effects when combined with slow motion.
This looked so cool on camera we spent quite a while getting the colours/angle of ink in the right place!
We added disco balls, animals, bubbles and everything we could think of to the water/ink combination and again with the wizardry of our videographer Swehttam, we were able to produce these two sick promo vids….
