A creative music video for Robert le Magnifique by Stéphane Pougnand and three students
Stéphane Pougnand, visual communication and Motion Design videographics teacher at LISAA Rennes brought together a team of three of his students to help him direct the music video for “Do it together” by Robert le Magnifique. It was “video of the week” as soon as it was released on the three Breton channels.
Increased skills resulting from a technical challenge
Stéphane Pougnand, graphic designer/videographer and teacher at LISAA Rennes, called upon three students from the Motion Design department to create the music video for "Do it together", the latest song by Robert le Magnifique. Stéphane chose Baptiste Glevarec, Arthur Busson and Antoine Robin for the quality of their work. LISAA Rennes gave them the use of their campus to make the film.
The three students and their teacher used a 3-D tracking technique with After Effects to make the video: once the actual movement of the camera is analysed, a virtual camera following this movement is created. This technique allows a fixed image or an animation filmed by a drone to be inserted into a video, the idea here being to insert the walls of a labyrinth in a forest. This experience, which required research and development, allowed the students to significantly advance.
A professional collaboration
This is the second time that I have called upon students from LISAA Rennes and I find our collaboration to be very rewarding

"This is the second time that I have called upon students from LISAA Rennes and I find our collaboration to be very rewarding", explains Stéphane Pougnand. "As professionals, we observe our students and discover their talent and their qualities: capacity to work, reliability, being able to work to deadline, ability to form ideas and research them… We are their first potential employers so they have to make a good impression on us!"
The three students will each continue their careers at the end of this year: Baptiste in animation, Arthus in special effects and Antoine with a work placement in motion design.
