Clinique created this interactive commercial/music video to show off their new line of lipstick. In this piece, Zara Larsson created 4 versions of her song, Lush Life. The genres are acoustic, dance, pop, and country. For each version of the song, we used the same set with different dressing and the camera did the same exact moves on the Milo motion control rig.  Larkin and I created 4 distinct looks to go with the different genres.

We only had one day to rig and prelight then 2 days to shoot all 4 versions.  So we had to come up with fixtures that could be versatile in being able to achieve all the looks and play them in spots that could serve multiple purposes.
