VFX Breakdown: Empathy Dance Music Video

A collaborative short film featuring a distressed marionette who attempts to break free from his master. I am responsible for the creating the Visual FX, atmospheric style and credit sequence. See below for the final version and the full list of cast/credits!


A word from the director:

“Empathy has many different definitions that encompass a broad range of emotional states. One is experiencing emotions that match another person’s emotions; discerning what another person is thinking or feeling; and making less distinct the differences between the self and the other. In this video, empathy is grounded in the acknowledgement of death and the celebration of life.”
