FKA Twigs 'Cellophane' by Andrew Thomas Huang
This is what you've been waiting for. FKA Twigs and Andrew Thomas Huang's collaboration for her new song Cellophane is a showcase for the remarkable talents of each - the dancer turned performer, the director and visionary visual effects artist - and somehow is more than the sum of its parts.
For a start Twigs has embraced poledancing, which means that the first part of the video is a VFX-enhanced tour de force of her poledancing skill and celebration of her extraordinary body - but that's just the start. Then comes the fantasy, the full-flowering of Thomas Huang's FX imagination and Twigs's transformation into something akin to a platform shoe'd action hero. And that just barely describes it. Another level of beauty.
"when I wrote cellophane over a year ago a visual narrative came to me immediately, I knew I had to learn how to pole-dance to bring it to life, and so that’s what I did. thank you andrew, for elevating my vision beyond words. you are a visionary. kelly, thank you for being with me every step of the way on my precious pole yellow brick road. working with you both on this is a dream come true."
