Entity FX Creates VFX for Peter Gabriels "Barry Williams Show" Music Video
Delivers over 50 effects shots five days after receiving locked cut from editorial
Santa Monica, CA (Sep. 04, 2002)
Directed by Sean Penn, the music video features the world of Barry Williams, a fictitious Jerry Springer-like talk show host, as he holds court to the everyday freaks of daytime TV. By the end of this entertaining, sardonic video, the audience has begun eerily to form stigmatas and tears of blood and Barry Williams finds himself caught in a bloody maelstrom that finally leaves him at the bottom of a crimson pool.
Entity FX was kept busy, delivering over 50 effects shots in just five days of receiving the locked cut from editorial. Effects work included complex green screen composites, CG blood, CG weather effects and multiple image distortions.
Bizarre facial distortions were done working with noted artist Gottfried Helnwein, who lives in Ireland but has a studio in Los Angeles.
