Augmented Colour: Stunts by Raveyards
The music video for Stunts by Belgian band Raveyards combines multiple exposure photography and animated projections to create a trippy visual effect.
Belgium-based director Charles De Meyer wanted to translate the hypnotic quality of the song in images. Colourful graphic shapes are overlaid onto members of the band's faces, creating distortions of their appearance and amalgamating their faces.
A majority of the effects were created in-shot, with no additional colour grading or effects. Filmed in a dark room, the lighting comes directly from the projected animations or brightly-lit screens displaying graphic colour in the background. The multi-layered colours and shadows add to the warping effect.
An increasing number of artists are combining holographic-style projection mapping and real-time imaging capture in digital media. Our report Augmented Colour looks at how these experimentations are changing the way we perceive digital colour.
