CRE­AT­ING STYLISED EN­VI­RON­MENTS Last year, GMUNK teamed up with record la­bel Ghostly In­ter­na­tional to con­cept and di­rect the first mu­sic video for am­bi­ent mu­sic artist Ty­cho. De­spite an in­cred­i­bly small bud­get, the team raised enough money to shoot in the woods for four days as well as in­side the stu­dio. “We ac­tu­ally shot more than the Prydz video for less than a third of the bud­get. I still don’t un­der­stand how,” he laughs. “It was su­per fun.”

The orig­i­nal nar­ra­tive fo­cused on a fe­male hero who jour­neys through a se­ries of stun­ning en­vi­ron­ments, us­ing smoke tun­nels, time-lapse crys­tals, hand­made 3D props, wide-an­gle shots, in­frared and full-spec­trum pho­tog­ra­phy to in­ter­pret Ty­cho’s track, See. But GMUNK learned a valu­able les­son on the job: “I had high ex­pec­ta­tions, but there were some com­ments so I did a re­cut. If you’re de­tached from those ex­pec­ta­tions, then any­thing that’s re­ceived will feel good.” Check out the stun­ning re­cut ver­sion here: www.bit.ly/ca244-gmunk
