Fuckboy – The VR Musical Experience

Film Category: Grounded 2020
Country of Production: United States
Director: Nir Netzer
Running Time: 3 mins 23

Synopsis:
FUCKBOY is a unique project. First of its kind, like nothing you have ever seen before! When cutting edge technology and awesome pop music meet to create art from a new kind. Fuckboy is a music video in 360. It incorporates 360 footage with high-end compositing, green screen in a 3D space, audio-reactive assets and CGI in 360. And Bugsy, forget being politically correct—she’s here, she’s pissed off, and she is ready to kick some balls. Spitting bars and belting hooks on stilettos in the name of females everywhere, Bugsy’s music has the unique effect of making people dance and simultaneously burn the patriarchy to the ground. Bugsy combines silky R&B vocals with raunchy rap to give feminism the foul-mouthed voice it deserves. Complete with backup dancers, room-shaking 808’s and a packed audience each time, her shows are more of a rally than a musical experience. Beyond the shadow of a doubt, future is female, and—middle fingers in the air—Bugsy is at the front of the pack, leading the charge.

Quarantivox, is a short experimental film where more than 27 artists from 15 cities of the world contributed with 5-10 sec videos to experiment sounds of Quarantine.

Maybe COVID 19 has concealed benefits and that is: to bring us closer, to share moments, to care about our brothers, sisters as well as Mother Earth and to LISTEN to numerous hidden sounds that our ears missed in the life we led as busy consumer species. The Word Quarantivox is a word made for this experimental video that defines the sound of the lockdown. Quarantivox is a raw sound and image experiment among many other lockdown productions of what we’re expressing now to confront a ruthless smart virus.
