RUFUS Say A Prayer

RUFUS Say A Prayer Music Video

We trekked it out with RÜFÜS to a creepy forest with a car full of lasers, smoke machines and lights to film their video clip for Say A Prayer. Toby & Pete's core idea was to create surreal lighting structures in a natural environment. They programmed lasers to strike trees and create light pyramids. Laser sheets were used to create skies and ocean floors amongst the trees. Sharpy beams were used to create abstract structures cutting through the forest. I helped be a runner on the shoot and then did a whole bunch of the compositing, grading and editing back at the studio.
