Happy Finish creates a second 360-degree piece for the Tate Modern, this time focusing on the art and studio of American artist Robert Rauschenberg, currently on exhibit at the museum. Happy Finish’s previous video focused on Georgia O’Keefe and was the Tate’s most-viewed Facebook video.
The video is filmed at
Rauschenberg’s studio in Captiva Island, Florida and features archival audio from the artist himself. Happy Finish used Mettle
plug-ins from within Adobe After Effects and Premiere Pro.
“We wanted to try to capture Rauschenberg’s curious artistic nature by placing the viewer as close to his reality as possible,” says cinematographer Jamie Mossahebi. “And, that’s why we chose Captiva Island as it was where he created most of his work. The voiceover, which we carefully sourced from archived content, also plays a key role in connecting the artist to the viewer, fully immersing them in the mind of such an iconic artist.”
