MAKING A MINECRAFT MUSICAL
Join us on set for the making of an award-winning live-action/cg hybrid musical created for the latest release of Minecraft, starring none other than Melissa Benoist.
“We got the script from 215 McCann to create a musical, which of course is such an exciting prospect because the nature of musicals is just so playful and inventive. Creating this sort of musical theme around Minecraft felt appropriate because the nature of Minecraft is to be so playful. We see our singer come out, the curtains open, and then all of a sudden we see this beautiful Minecraft world. Something we've always enjoyed doing at Psyop is to invent new ways to create a voice for different brands.”

“One of the things we loved about this is that you start from literally a sketch on a piece of paper. then we have designers do a style frame where it's a full color sketch. Then we start working with set designers and they start building the things that were in the sketch. We'd seen everything grow from figment to fulfillment, and then Melissa (Benoist, star of Supergirl) gets there and starts performing, it just brings all this life to it. It was breathtaking. Our highest personal accolade is when our commercials are entertainment. So how do we expand the brand's identity and package it into a beautiful commercial? Hopefully that's what we've done!”
- Todd, Director
