"Breaking Through" is a 2015 coming-of-age dance drama for the YouTube generation. From executive producer and nine-time Grammy Award winner John Legend and directed by the writer of "Step Up: All In," John Swetnam, comes a groundbreaking film that bridges the gap between film, music, dance and the internet.

PaintScaping created all the fx for the climactic scene where the lead character Casey gives it all, as millions are watching online, riveted by her amazing dance moves.

Using a rear screen projection system, PaintScaping created shattering, exploding, and pulsating fx, in sync with Casey's choreography.

The clips were directed and created by Rob Ostir, one of PaintScaping's top mapping directors.
