The Math Behind The ‘Fly’ Video

Our friend Daniel Havir has published an article about the process of creating the visual effects for our ‘Fly’ music video. As far as we know, this use of machine learning has never been done before, which is exciting!

In short, we took several images from pop-culture and Daniel wrote a self-learning algorithm to apply their visual style onto our footage. We wanted the video to be very colourful, and with images from Star Wars, Futurama, Interstellar or Watchmen, we couldn’t wish for a better result.

Check the video below and read Daniel’s article for technical details here.

Vimeo has slightly better quality than YouTube. And if you’re like us, you can download the video in the best quality available here.

These were the Star Wars IMAX posters we used alongside pictures from Futurama, Interstellar or The Simpsons. Check those here. Thanks for reading!
