Filming was shot by David Mullett via RSA Films/Black Dog with director of photography Ben Moulden and producer Rupert Style.

Post production was done at Glassworks, London by Flame lead Diego Vazquez Lozano, R&D Peter Reilly, 3D artists Diego Vazquez Lozano, Peter Reilly, Adam Cubitt, and producer Katie O’Mahoney.

Filming is described by Glassworks as a “one-shot, technique-driven piece”. The Glassworks team edited together the 3:30 minute music video from 45 hours of HD shot footage sourced from 6 different cameras running simultaneously. The R&D team was developed an XSI plug-in to load the finished Flame scene and turn the tiles into photo models to then have dynamics such as gravity applied to them to achieve a truly random placement of the stacks on the floor.
