About the Production:
“Up Here” is a live action and stop-motion music video for Atraxia. Live-action sequences were shot in two days with an awesome cast and crew of volunteers. The animated sequences in this film were constructed by shooting multiple stop-motion scenes against a greenscreen and layering them over a digital background. A simple homemade rostrum stand and DSLR were used to shoot the images. Illustrations for the astronaut and dinosaur characters were created by Dan Fowler. In addition to co-directing with Trey Morrow, my responsibilities included cinematography, editing, animation, and visual effects.
