After spending a long night in a dark, creepy warehouse full of mannequins, and many hours of spare time in front of your computer, this is what you get!
In this piece we’ve combined two of our interests, creative visuals and electro music, to create a music video for the up-and-coming Swedish artist Mille. The idea was to use projections on mannequins to achieve a different and interesting expression where graphics almost become clothes on the bodies.
To be able to do this we got some help from a couple of friends - David Einar behind the camera and Transfett who did the live sync of visuals onto mannequins, thanks guys! Awesome work.

This was shot on a very primitive 1995 sony camcorder with digital 8mm tape.
Sunday afternoon in Brighton, UK. with Johanna and Anna (a real couple)
Shot in 50mins, edited on imovie and posted to vimeo that evening.
I asked the couple to go about their business as usual...but without touching each other.
