Simple Minds / Magic
Being a child from the 80's, I grew up listening to bands like Simple Minds, specially during my teens, when the band reached it's peak in terms of popularity. Some 30 years later, I had the chance to create the music video for the first single of their latest album, 'Walk Between Worlds'.
The concept was based on the traditional phrase 'smoke and mirrors', a classical technique in magical illusions that makes an entity appear to hover in an empty space. We took some ideas from alchemy and the permutation of elements to create the different stages of the video.
