We have been keeping busy during the last few months with a lot of cool projects that will be featured soon. One such project we are happy to share is a collaboration with Teddie Films, who we know from Mike’s days at Rubberball. They asked us to redesign the mural featured in the massively famous and fantastic Gotye music video, Somebody That I Used To Know. We were honored and jumped at the challenge.
But there was more! Not only did they want us to redesign the mural and do a bit of art direction, they wanted Mike to play the part of George Lucas in it.
It all went together so seamlessly, and Tyler and Eddie were so much fun to work with. We know this will go on to be a hit for sure. Check out our conceptual work below, and see how it all came together in the video!
This is an early version that was scrapped because it would be too complex and too much work, so we went with the Death Star and I think it’s stronger for it.
In contemplating how we would tackle so many colors (21 in fact), I decided to turn the mural into a paint by numbers so that those of us involved in painting would have an easier time.
This is the final mural, without the two leads.
Here, as reference, I placed illustrations of Vader and Lucas over the mural.
