Netsky

A one-of-a-kind interactive music video, fusing live action and animation to tell the story of a downtrodden teenager who gets revenge on the school bullies. Interact with every shot to control something in the scene - including the main character’s newly developed mind-control powers.

Inspired by glossy American high school movies and Saturday morning cartoons, we stylized the footage with colorful animated heads and hands.

Each shot was created with 8 variations, switched between instantly by interacting. The result is a scene where you can drag up and down on the screen and levitate objects while the video plays.

Desktop users could even connect their smartphone via websockets, transforming it into a retro remote control for the experience..
