It’s always a pleasure to roll out new work from talented friends. Some of you may remember my friend Miguel Ortega. He’s a VFX guy and professor at one of the nations best VFX schools GNOMON. We became friends after I saw one of his films on Vimeo entitled The Green Ruby Pumpkin. It is an amazing piece! Our friendship sorta grew from there. Miguel has worked on films such as Star Trek and countless more. He is currently finishing up his short film The Ningyo, which we featured in our Kickstarter segment. I recently spoke to him about the progress on The Ningyo and he assures me that it will be a sight to behold. You know MITNG will be bringing you all the exclusives as they come.
Anyway, in addition to all that stuff, Miguel and a talented team of designers, just finished this whimsical music video for SKRILLEX called Monsters and Nice Sprites. The track came out several years ago, but definitely needed a video like this to quicken it once again.
The video follows a sprite as it journeys into unknown territory, eventually coming in contact with a “monster”. The rest is a heart-stopping chasing that ends on a good note.
