videoGrimes 'You'll Miss Me When I'm Not Around' by Brent Bonacorso
After releasing high resolution greenscreen footage at the beginning of quarantine, Grimes gave video creators the opportunity to create something as they saw fit, using post-production and effects.Brent Bonacorso has stepped up to the plate, and this is his vision for the concept - exploring technology, myth, conception and creation. It is a mighty effort of VFX skill, and he also pays to due homage to Grimes, pregnant when created the greenscreen footage, becoming a mother for the first time during the production process. Breathtaking textures collide with distorted shapes, creating an aesthetic that falls somewhere between The Matrix and I, Robot. Grimes' otherworldly performance fits perfectly within this dynamic, a soft and ethereal being in a dark abyss of futurism and refined brutalist structures. To get from greenscreen performance footage to this video is a huge achievement, and a testament to Bonacorso's creative ingenuity.
