Late last year we were approached by Skrillex’s record label, OWSLA, to direct and produce a video for his Dog Blood project. Dog Blood is Skrillex and Boys Noize and their single ‘Chella Ride’ is a high octane EDM track that needed something dirty and trippy.
We jumped at the chance of working with them and set out on a journey to create our most elaborate and detailed animation to date, mixing multiple techniques such as 3d, 2d, cel animation and live action footage to create a hybrid style that feels unique to the project. It was a rare chance to get the entire studio involved as well as a chance to collaborate with our sister company ilovedust on the design.
Directed and produced by Golden Wolf.
