This video was mostly shot live on a pyrotechnic stage. We used a high speed camera to shoot at 2500fps for the rain, flower explosion and fuse shots. The only artificial visual effects are the face explosion, bubble transformation and smoke to body bag transformation.

We are two young french directors that decided to create a real time installation and make a video from it.
"Light Rhapsody" is a real time human lighting sculpture. A 3D model has been projected in real time over the real model through a projecting device. It creates a radiant dissemination emanating from her skin.That projection was animated and progress over her entire body until it has reached and invaded her face.
2 days shooting with the model (thanks to you Julia Nana for your patience) and another one for the wild shot of NYC.
We shot with two cameras, a D90 and a 1Dmk4 cause the budget was super tight.
We would like to make some special thanks to our model, Julia Swell and our talented make up artist Cindy Leroux. Thanks to Hsiao-han Lan 筱涵 our magic set photographer !!!
