Effektschmiede GmbH 1 July 2020

Recently we were visited by Noah Levi, together with the production crew of Jive Germany, to film the music video for his new song ‘Sonne oder Regen’. The Effektschmiede Team pulled out all the stops and took charge of lighting, set design, and the production of rain, fog and lightning effects. Noah’s music video dropped on Friday the 19th of July and today we’re sharing our very own making-of video. Noah Levi – Sonne oder Regen
