The music video for The Pharcyde's new single AY YO MY MAN, directed by Little Red Robot features neon tube art designs assembled in 3D, then composited into the live-action, interacting with musicians Tre and Fat Lip.
The music video was shot all in HD in Los Angeles with heavy post-production carried out in LRR's San Fransisco and London studios involving custom developed neon shaders in Maya and fully composited in HD in Nuke, all on a tight schedule and budget. This video has a summertime feel with the night life look of neon colors and the good vibe sounds of AY YO MY MAN.
