Linkin Park: Burn It Down (Music Video VFX)


Burn It Down, was a dual purpose project where it was primarily a music video, but was then also tied into a commercial advertising the Honda Civic sponsored concert tour. I had created filler fire simulation elements for early parts of the video, but due to the workload I had at the time I was not able to create the hero "frozen moment" shot unfortunately. We were juggling a few projects in the office at the time. I did however do the 3D camera and object tracking for the video and some compositing. The biggest track being the hero end shot which was one long take in the Honda Civic commercial, and broken up in edit for the music video.
