As a participant in Adobe’s “Make the Cut” video contest, I was given exclusive raw footage from the music video shoot for Believer by Imagine Dragons.
I created this short form 1 minute version of their music video. My original opening was created in After Effects using individual shots of the band to form the shape of their album logo, seen also in other places in the video. The remainder of the cut was created using both Adobe Premiere and After Effects.
My goals in this edit were to remain true to the director’s vision while telling a story in a unique, fast-paced way.
