Muse Uprising Bears with Special Effects
Alternative rock band Muse has won an MTV Music Video Award for special effects for “Uprising”, a music video directed by Hydra. The band rides through a dystopic, ultra slo-mo world in a 1938 GMC pickup truck, dodging the plastic dolls and sparking wires. An army of destructive teddy bears rises from the ground, wreaking destruction on all who get in their way.
Uprising music video was shot by directing collective Hydra (Sam Stephens, Ariel Danziger, John Hobbs) via Humble, New York, with executive producer Eric Berkowitz, executive producer RW Media, head of production Persis Koch, producer Kristin Tomborello, director of photography (USA) Peter Wallach, director of photography (UK) Christopher Sabogal (UK), VFX artists Jake Guttormsson, Max Kornev, Eugen Sasu, Eric Epstein, Andy Ortiz, Chris Mauch, post assistants Boyeong Kim, Matt Stephens, Tiffani Johnson.
Art work for the album is by Dan Abbott and Storm Thorgerson.
