With special effects, creators can make your wildest dreams or nightmares come true. The possibilities are endless. We have four different amazing music videos to show you the VFX magic!

The head of the Creative and Motion Graphics Department is Julien Vallet. Mickael Nauzin is responsible for the sick animation and Maxime Pozzi Garcia is in the role of the editor.

Deadmau5 feat. Rob Swire – Monophobia
Put on your leopard speedos, Deadmau5 & Rob Swire are taking us to a pool party! A bit different pool party.
Wrapping up our Best VFX list with a bouncy music video ‘Monophobia’. They went really crazy on this one and we love it. Dancing mice, flying burgers, rainbows? You name it, they got it. If you think you’ve already been to the coolest party ever, we’ve got bad news for you. The odds are, it probably won’t top this insanity-filled rave. The audiovisual funhouse received a nomination back in 2019.
This video has Smearballs (Nick DenBoer) written all over it. Not only he did the animation/VFX but also takes the credit for production and co-direction (+ Kenny Hotz). Generic Versatility Animation is the company behind the production.
We recommend watching the video several times. There’s always something new catching your attention!
