Take the Time (2013)
song : Dream Theater - Take the Time
For the last few months, I worked for my all time favorite prog metal band “Dream Theater” to make three different videos for their 2014 world tour entitled “Along for the Ride”. This project really sucked energy out of me, since I had to create 30 minutes of music-based video in 3 months. But it was such an honor for me to work ‘officially’ for one of the greatest band ever and receive feedback from their camp. And here’s the first one for the song “Take the Time”.
For the first time, I used C4D for massive part of this video. Frankly, I’m not sure if it worked out well. I tried three different methods for creating scenes - shoot footage, 2d tool(AE), 3d tool(C4d) - and I’m not so confident I mixed them altogether pretty well. Also, this one took almost 6 weeks while others took 3 for each. So, I have to say this was the hardest one technically.
Have so many things to talk about this one, but I don’t want to write an essay here. Whoever you are, I want you to enjoy this.
