In the the music video for “Dagner,” a new track from Dan Freeman and The Serious, small human figures appear trapped in a series of elaborate pop-up scenes floating in darkness. Each scene is artfully damaged in some way, carefully imperfect.
Director Michael Fragstein explains the process behind the look:
We used photogrammetric processing of digital images to generate the 3D set-up. After several tests with different apps, we chose photoScan for production.
To get a vivid and almost handmade look, we played with inaccuracy within the process by feeding the system with poor footage or tweaking the software parameters to low values.
