For Just Like Fire, signature song for Disney’s new film, Alice Through The Looking Glass, director Dave Meyers of Zanmi Films and Strange Invention’s VFX Supe, Todd Sarsfield, teamed with Nice Shoes Creative Studio to immerse pop star, Pink, into the zany ‘Underworld’ as Alice.
Realizing a dreamlike sequence involving 18 versions of Pink atop a life-sized chessboard, as well as lush, digital gardens filled with flowers and trees, Nice Shoes Creative Studio’s Director of CG, Steve Parish, reveals how he and his team fearlessly took on Time to make standout surrealism happen in the striking music video.
