MUSIC VIDEO: QUIET MAN HANDLES FX FOR PANIC! AT THE DISCO'S LATEST

WATCH THE VIDEO

The importance of these fish tanks is played out as metropolitan pedestrians come across a person with a shattered casing. Aid comes and the only hope seems to be returning the beings back to the sea. The tanks, which surround the characters' head, used double-paned glass, giving the illusion of a functioning aquarium while allowing actors to breath.

Quiet Man VFX artist Karen Heston was called on to digitally manipulate the water in scenes featuring band members and the video's two central characters. Using a color warper and other color-correcting tools within Autodesk's Flame and Inferno, Heston removed evidence of the panes by retouching the tanks and rebuilt reflections. Marine flora and fauna were also added to mask lines in certain scenes.

FM Rocks' Cesar Delucia was the producer on the project. Kopach created the final  3:16 edit.
