David Knight - 18th Jan 2017

Director and VFX/CG supervisor Jay Harwood has created an arresting video for Danish electronica duo Lulu Rouge, building a fantastical superreality in CGI to represent a dying love affair.

The narrative is played out through a choreography of two exceptional dancers, Ask La Cour and Georgina Pazcoguni, a principal and soloist from New York City Ballet, that Harwood has motion-captured. From that he's created photorealistic protagonists thrust into an abstract world, encrusted in ash and dirt, exposed to unusual elements, and symbolically playing out the push, pull and break-up of their crumbling relationship.
