MDes Sound for the Moving Image student produced the video for Roddy Woomble’s new single – Architecture in LA – using Unreal Engine and Virtual Reality cinematography.
“Roddy wrote the album Lo! Soul from which this single is taken, while locked down on a Hebridean island. He wanted a playful and surreal video with an element of performance that reflected the island location, a challenge given I’d be making it myself at home in Glasgow. I built an island environment in Unreal Engine, and incorporated phone footage from Roddy and singer Jill Lorean, processed using video synthesis. I set everything up so I could wander round the island in VR and scout for shots, which added an enjoyable element of experimentation. Takes were roughly assembled in the Unreal sequencer, then rendered for final editing and post production.”
