A7S 'Nirvana' by Markus Lundqvist & Gareth Brannan

Promonews - 1st July 2021

Co-directors and Rascal Post owners Markus Lundqvist and Gareth Brannan build fantasy worlds around Swedish producer/singer A7S and his female counterpart in the VFX-fired blockbuster for Nirvana.

Lundqvist and Brannan create an enigmatic tension between the pair - as she traverses a hostile landscape and a city that is collapsing upon itself - harnessing the animation and grading talents in Rascal's bases in Stockholm and London, and across the globe.

MARKUS LUNDQVIST & GARETH BRANNAN:

We really wanted to push the boundaries for how we use our Unreal 3D technology.

"When we first heard the song we instantly got inspired by the themes of Nirvana and Desire.

"Living in two parallel universes A7S and the girl live in identical towering cities. They spend their time wonder vast alien landscapes scared by ritual and symbolism. Searching for their own Nirvana they learn to communicate with each other, tearing through time and space to spend one brief moment together.

"As owners of an international visual effects company we really wanted to push the boundaries for how we use our Unreal 3D technology. With artists all over the world, from Sweden to New Zealand, we were able to work around the clock to create epic scenes that belong on the big screen."
