What interview is this from?
David Slade (director): Matt falls into a giant hole in a machine at the core of a futuristic city, then spends the entire video falling, watched by the other members of the band. He falls until he drifts out into space the then continues to accelerate until he reaches the edge of the universe where he comes apart as gas. We shot for two days with Matt Bellamy spinning on wires for the whole time. I believe Matt is a sadomasochist. He had bruises that took three weeks to heal and he puked three times. But still somehow came up smiling. Everyone thinks that this video was done with CGI, not so. We didn’t have the schedule or budget and so had to do it the old fashioned way - entirely with miniatures. There was a lot of 2D compositing though and Smoke & Mirrors artist Rob Maggoch created all the starscape backgrounds entirely in inferno.

- It may be from the Bliss DVD. I'll have that to hand on Monday to check if no one does before then. ۞ 01:04, 19 January 2008 (GMT)
