Ultra Music Festival outdoes itself with 2015 aftermovie
Throwing the word “epic” around usually feels overdone, but not when it’s in regards to the absolutely EPIC 14-minute long recap of this year’s Ultra Music Festival. As one of the most iconic events in electronic music year after year, the Miami-based festival has become a destination for fans from all over the world every year in March. A global phenomena, this year’s aftermovie captures all of the memory-making moments that defined 2015’s event. As always the aftermovie’s soundtrack is as impressive at the cinematography, featuring tracks from Skrillex, Sleepy Tom, HI-LO, before it closes out with an ID from Martin Garrix.
Charly Friedrichs, best known as Final Kid, comments on the production process: “When I planned on shooting this Miami aftermovie I knew I wanted to create a megamix again. The last Miami aftermovie was created as a short film with one custom soundtrack and a lot of story and slow-motion shots in it, but this time I felt like doing a faster one with a lot of new techniques, visual FX and editing tricks. Most of all I wanted to ‘bring back the groove’ so I created a soundtrack that has more flow. I want the viewer to be more ‘inside’ the festival, where people are dancing and not necessarily focused on the DJ.
Turn your speakers and your quality up for this one. This bad boy is shot in 4K.
