About

The trailer for hit musical The Band’s Visit provided a unique challenge: How could Significant Others help to bring production stills from a Broadway musical to life? We helped Final Cut editor Miky Wolf to direct the film, giving us an opportunity to once again produce a project from concept through to final delivery. The client was interested in the technique of parallax animation, so we took that idea as a starting point, and rather than create just a montage of these scenes, we built a world in which the camera floats seamlessly through the time and space of the world created onstage. It was almost like creating a series of fantastic dioramas. The unifying element of all of these vignettes was the amazing imagery of the desert sky at night that AKA had developed for the print campaign. And to top it all off, the camera sailed along to the musical’s beautiful score by David Yazbek, with Sound Design and Mix by Machine’s T. Terressa Tate.
