Costuming Parasite: a Music Video Adventure

I am so thrilled to be able to share the official video for Parasite, a song by my friend and singer/songwriter Christa Couture! It’s been a long time coming, over a year since filming this, the first music video I’ve ever worked on. It was very exciting, a learning curve indeed. And it involved unitards. My world is complete!

There was a wind machine, which was fun, beautiful, intense and also funny! Christa was amazing, walking through flying debris, singing at super-speed (so that it would look slow, a film magic trick that I don’t quite grasp!) and dealing with hair and various flotsam and jetsam that stuck to her glossy video-lips.

“Parasite” was directed by Adam Garnet Jones and Big Soul Productions.

Truly, feathers were flying. And tissue paper, and fake snow, and and and …
A last minute make up touch near the end of the shoot. We started late and went all night, needing the darkness. I love this. And I love that I got my friend the folk singer into a tulle skirt inspired by the romantic ballets - worlds colliding!

Aerialist on high. I had a successful dye adventure to match them to Christa's top and the make-up artist gave them subtly metallic gold skin making them other-worldly and metaphoric.
