First Taiwanese 360 Music Video Produced Through CGI
Taiwanese special effects company, PXFLY, recently launched the first 360 music video ever produced in the country. What’s truly unique about this 360 video is that the entire production was done without a 360 degree camera rig, rather produced entirely digitally through CGI and live action filming.
“Doing away with just shooting with a 360-degree camera or only using plain CG images, we took it to the next level by combining live action with CG. The end result was a surreal space, complete with an Escheresque network of never-ending stairs and passageways. The space becomes the epitome of life itself, as HUSH is seen from multiple angles doing different thing at the same time. In one scene, he questions the commercial world from a seated position while a dancer representing his doubts about god goes to town on the ceiling. In another, the endless stairs draws his mind deeper and deeper into the unknown. There’s no doubt that the camera leads viewers through an adventure like no other as well as guides them on their own path to discover the truth for themselves with HUSH.”

“2015 saw our first venture into VR. The project was a music video for singer/songwriter HUSH’s King of Doubt and involved a collaboration between its director Peter Ming-Feng Liu and PXFLY. Full of strong visual imagery, the song conveys a sense of loneliness as the singer searches the unknowns of life, fate, capitalism, and god.”
