This artist sang with ghostly projections of herself for her latest music video

New, 5 comments

Just when we thought we'd seen every kind of music video around, out comes this wonderfully conceived video for Portuguese pop artist Emmy Curl's latest single, "Come Closer." The video is the product of multiple different performances layered atop each other — all with practical effects.

Curl stands exposed against a dark, bare background as video of her singing the song is projected onto her face. Some of the performances simply contrast with each other, while others effectively layer a grid of purple patterns across her skin. The director tells Dezeen that they used UV paint to render the designs on her skin. It's a brilliant concept, and it comes together with some precise choreography that keeps Curl in the same position as her projections. Even more impressive is that the entire product was put together in a single take, with no cuts.
