about

Getting the chance to work on Iron Maiden’s fully animated music video for their newest single, Speed of Light, was incredibly fun. The video was directed by Llexi Leon, with the animation and visual effects produced in house at The Brewery VFX.

The inspiration of the music video stems from popular video games, with each scene turning an Iron Maiden album cover into its own game. I got to recreate the cover of Run To The Hills into a fighting arena influenced by Mortal Kombat’s style. For the final scene, I painted textures and added detail onto a 3D render of the gaming cabinets.
