Director Maikel van der Laken and Will Productions came to Planet X FX with a clearly defined concept for the video clip for Caro Emerald 'That Man'.
In the clip, Caro gets lost in a graphic world with a vintage look and feel, looking for 'That Man'. Maikel had combined detailed storyboard of the story with reference material, namely title sequences from Hitchcock films.
Planet X FX approached Donald Roos from Bureau.Donald® for all designs and all parts needing animation. Donald dove into his subject and translated countless original designs from the 1950s and 1960s into a consistent world for 'That Man'.
Greenscreen shootA studio shoot was set up to shoot Caro and the musicians in front of a green screen so that later they could become a part of the graphic world. Only in the beginning does Caro appear as herself. Then she is 'taken over' by a graphic alter ego. She walks off stairs that are a simplified version of a piano. Because the theme of steps/keys could be leading, the stairs were designed in advance and reproduced exactly on the set so that they would match the graphic stairs.
