Stevie Wonder featuring Ariana Grande – “Faith”

I helped bring Stevie Wonder’s and Ariana Grande colabboration on song “Faith” to life. I had another oportunity to supervise the amazing MPC’s VFX team and work on solving the creative task of bringing Alan Bibby’s vision to life. The animation was loosely based on the famous “Muto” animation by Blu and we had to achieve the similar wall-paint effect for the outdoor animations. Then, in 2D, using camera tracks, we put together a treatment for the interior shots where the animated animals from “Sing”, the blockbuster movie out in theaters now were rotoscoped out of the provided footage and composited into the environment using the magic of spotlights.

Amazing team by the MPC team, yet again! Enjoy the song!
