Arno Salters' fifth video for General Elektriks - the musical project led by his brother Hervé Salters - makes the most of Hervé and his band's totally wired energy by multiplying it numerous times, through the magic of motion control.

Created in a huge warehouse-like space in Berlin, Arno worked with UKMVA-nominated cinematographer  Cezary Zacharewicz and motion control operator Heiko Matting of Berlin-based  Mastermoves to shoot the video, with Paris VFX studio Mathematic providing the Flame, Nuke and grading work that stitched the different takes together.

The result is a mesmerizing, brilliantly visual tour de force. It's buzzing. Here's the making of.
