Shilo developed this video, which recently aired at the F5 Festival for BrotherSister’s single ‘Still Run’ off of their new album ‘The Wunder Tales’.

The making of the video was quite an ordeal. Here is Shilo’s Creative Director Andre Stringer on the process of producing the video:

“After listening to the record, I just fell in love with the poetry of the song and lyrics,” Stringer began. “For the video, I wanted to explore the idea of perseverance through change and adversity, and we found a way to take that idea to an epic scale by using one seamless shot where a person runs though time and space. We began by shooting a five-second test of the guy running in front of a green screen, and over the course of about a year, we turned that into a full music video. Almost everyone in the studio has touched it at some point, including Dante when he was here contributing sound design and music to some of our other projects.”

Shilo launched a new site this morning that appears to be their blog. It offers up an RSS feed of their latest work. The site is titled, ‘We Make It Good‘, which isn’t off the mark if you are familiar with Shilo’s work. Shilo is led by directors Jose Gomez and Andre Stringer.

They have been riding the bleeding edge of motion design for several years now and Jose is a very down to Earth all around nice guy. You can’t go wrong working with them from what I have heard from industry insiders. They are an Emmy award winning studio with offices now in New York, New York, and Del Mar, California.
