Describe the brief from the client
To create a music video for the Japanese band androp's first debut single ‘Bright Siren’.

Describe the challenges and key objectives
The objective was to create a music video & online experience for the song ‘Bright Siren’ by the Japanese rock band androp, and appeal to their young & tech savvy fans.

Describe how you arrived at the final design
The song Bright Siren sings about memories. This and the title Bright Siren inspired us to use camera strobes as pixels to create an animation out of lights. We actually lined up 250 cameras and controlled each strobe through Flash, openFrameworks, and Arduino to create the light animation. All the lights in the film are real, and no CG was used.

Give some indication of how successful the outcome was in the market
The video has so far gained over a million views on YouTube, creating a buzz online not just in Japan, but also worldwide. It was showcased in countless blogs, magazines, and TV shows, successfully gaining new fans around the world.
