Superfly “FLARE”


WTFC planned/produced the music video for Superfly’s “Flare,” which the opening theme song of NHK’s morning TV drama, “Scarlet.”

Building off of the title of the song, “Flare,” the main concept of the video was the flickering flames of candles filmed in stop-motion. More than 800 candles were used to portray Superfly’s gentle yet powerful vocals in the song.
