In this Start to Finish documentary, Scott Pagano, head of LA design studio Neither-Field, walks us through the cinematic, motion-based music video he designed for electronic music group the M Machine. Taking inspiration from Fritz Lang's classic film of the same name, Metropolis Pt. II takes you on a path to the beating "heart" of a city, punctuated by moments that rise and fall with the music. Scott explains how he constructed the buildings using Maya's particle system, designed the mechanical vines that guide the viewer along, and built the mechanized human figure at the city's center, which explodes to reveal its own inner workings.

Scott Pagano: I create moving images and I create them for a range of different purposes. And a lot of this stuff is related to music. A lot of these things have been like album teasers where it's basically you know, in advance to someone releasing a record. The particular camera path in this was a huge part of this piece. This was really about creating a whole story through a really well choreographed camera move. I'm basically just adding a velocity on, on a certain axis to each one of these.

Because I know that I want this one to go this way, this one to go this way and I just want to break this thing apart. This particular asset is a really good example of the benefits of working procedurally in that you think about system building and not just asset building which then enables you to build an untold number of assets. Scott Pagano: By creating things that have movements that happen both offset in time and in slightly different directions to give a real dynamic sense of space and motion.

Scott Pagano: You've spent all this time in the world of gray and lines and I can get into the zone of really digging in for long periods of time I'm building that stuff. At the end off the day that's only so satisfying in making a really beautiful image where it really comes together for me.
