Friends of MATTE The Chainsmokers approached MATTE Films to create a series of announcements for their upcoming tour, World War Joy. Inspired by the artist’s vision of a post-apocalyptic world redeemed by the joy of music, the promotional film is a wild ride through dark fantasies and visual styles that each feature in The Chainsmokers’ work.
With an original music mashup of the band’s hits, the VFX-heavy piece kicked off with a large-scale green-screen shoot, where each band member flew threw the air with the aid of a trampoline as MATTE captured in high frame rates.
The film is first of three promotional spots to promote the World War Joy tour. MATTE is excited for the subsequent two installments of the series.
