Charly Freidrichs aka Final Kid and Ultra Music Festival recently revealed the festival’s official after-movie. Directed, edited and mixed by Friedrichs himself, Relive Ultra Miami 2013 is a lovely piece of audio-visual artwork. It captures the essence of Ultra Music Festival’s 15th anniversary and delves deep into the experiential journey that the festival offers artists and fans alike.
"The 15th anniversary of Ultra Music Festival Miami earlier this year in March was truly an unprecedented success, and one I'll always remember. For the first time in not only our history, but the history of any major electronic music festival in the world, Ultra took place over two consecutive weekends, each one complete with the most diverse, captivating artist line up and mind-blowing stage production that we've ever produced. Charly's after-movie reflects this perfectly and I truly believe it is the very best of its kind. Never before have I seen such an emotive piece of festival filmwork, that captures the very essence of what it's like to take part in an event such as Ultra Music Festival." Russell Faibisch, Ultra Music Festival Founder, Executive Producer, CEO & President.
Charly Friedrichs: “This has to be the best piece I have ever created. I have never before worked with so much amazing footage and I literally watched every second of it to pick only the most incredible shots. I don’t think there is any music event in the world where the cinematography is at this level, and I am blessed to work with a team that has so much vision and talent.”
Featuring footage from the inaugural double-weekender in Miami – including the final ever show by the Swedish House Mafia; the production of the newly designed Ultra Main Stage; the madness of the Ultra ‘Megastructure’, which featured custom arenas for Carl Cox & Friends and A State of Trance; and the epic journey that world-class talent and 330,000 ‘Ultranauts’ all took to downtown Miami this past March – Friedrichs packs all of this and much more into a 17-minute beautiful after-movie.
