Higgs Boson music video

“ATLAS Boogie” – An animated music video for a song by the CERN physicists in the “Canettes Blues Band. It’s about the ATLAS Experiment in the Large Hadron Collider at CERN, in Geneva, Switzerland, the quantum world and finding the Higg’s Boson.

Collaborating with the band and making sure the video concept was scientifically sound, I shot the original footage in a warehouse at CERN. Using a combination of the Rotobrush in After Effects and Mocha tracking system, I converted the footage to rotoscope, pieced it together in After Effects with assets built in Photoshop/Illustrator, and edited it to the song.
