The bands 15th Studio Record the Final Frontier is due out on August 17th. The directors cut for the video of the “El Dorado Video” off of Maiden’s 15th Studio album “The Final Frontier” can be viewed on IronMaiden.com and on the bands Vevo channel.
The Video was produced by the award-winning production company Darkside Animation Films. Darkside’s creative team includes animators who’ve created effects for feature films including “Lost in Space,” “Gladiator” and “Black Hawk Down.” The script was written by the director of BBC Radio’s “Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy,” and the live action was co-ordinated and directed by Nick Scott Studios. As well as working round the clock to turn out over three months of animation in eight weeks flat, the Darkside team developed entirely new technology to bring to life as never before Iron Maiden’s mascot, EDDIE, in his new alien incarnation.
