New Work – Bright Bright Great/Mlmtr for Flosstradamus HDYFEST 2017

BBG’s photo/video studio, MLMTR, was tapped by Flosstradamus to come out to their rehearsal space and film behind-the-scenes video for HDYFEST in Denver. With short notice and a tight turnaround, MLMTR produced three 15-second teaser videos highlighting the custom stage build for the festival.

We filmed R+D, rehearsals, and will retain footage from the actual festival to create a 2-minute “How we did it” video detailing the process of how the Flosstradamus team turned plexiglass and projectors into holograms.
