In this MTV for French singer-songwriter Renan Luce, Laurent Seroussi is playing with the old art form of the ‘trompe-l’œil’, in which paintings – traditionally on walls – create the illusion of depth and perspective. The typical budget constraints in the local music scene have been cleverly dealt with by choosing a one-shot video concept that takes us through a series of French cityscape drawings. The single shot, raw and unedited, deliberately gives an interesting peek behind the scenes when switching camera positions. Although the execution was real-time, many more hours went into the meticulously prepared set, a carefully planned timing and undoubtedly a lot of rehearsing. Kudos for Renan’s workout routine on the treadmill – without bars! – while singing and focusing on the camera… Not recommended for trying out at home.
Further to his MTV projects, Laurent has been shooting album artwork for various other artists in the French music scene.
