General Elektriks 'Different Blue' by Arno Salters

Created in a huge warehouse-like space in Berlin, Arno worked with UKMVA-nominated cinematographer Cezary Zacharewicz and motion control operator Heiko Matting of Berlin-based Mastermoves to shoot the video, with Paris VFX studio Mathematic providing the Flame, Nuke and grading work that stitched the different takes together.
