Known for their masterpieces in music, RÜFÜS DU SOL are monumental in their creations. Their is nothing average released by this trio, and the newest RÜFÜS DU SOL single Alive holds that standard immensely.
In Rüfus’ newest single, “Alive” they work with legendary director James Frost who’s directed Radiohead’s “House Of Cards” music video as well as “OK Go’s “This Too Shall Pass” just to name a few.
Together, they worked together to create the music video for “Alive” that takes viewers on a first-person journey over speeding landscapes all the while “Alive” plays out in unison.
From James Frost,
As a result, I wanted to create something where we sensed we were utterly free from restraint. In light of what the World has just gone through the last 18 months, it almost felt like the need to create a visceral piece of work.
James Frost, Director Rüfus Du Sol’s “Alive” Music Video
Obviously, it would not have been possible to travel the World shooting remote landscapes, and I really wanted to find a way to explore the digital
side. That’s where Unreal Engine came in.
When watching the music video of RÜFÜS DU SOL Single Alive, notice how realistic the spanning scenic shots are. This is all by design.
What if the environment is so photoreal that it pulls the viewer into believing they are traveling through these incredible landscapes. Then, to suddenly reveal it as a digital asset. What would that World look like?”James Frost, Director Rüfus Du Sol’s “Alive” Music Video
Director James Frost turned to Epic Game’s proprietary 3D creation suite of tools they call, Unreal Engine, to develop this video. Epic Game’s has been a force in video game development for the last three decades. As for the current generation, Epic Games is most notably known for their iconic and sui generis multiplayer battle royale style game – Fortnite.
