Music video with digital transformation of singer

BOGGIE - NOUVEAU PARFUM (official music video) from THE SOUP on Vimeo.
In this music video, Hungarian singer Boggie's face is given a digital makeover throughout the course of the song. Blemishes are removed, the neck is elongated, hair swapped around, and the colors are graded to make an increasingly glamorous—and increasingly artificial—appearance. (Link to video on Vimeo)

The result is a clever reminder that every photo and video we see may be far removed from the initial capture.

In fact, the video itself is not quite what it appears. Of course, the makeover doesn't happen in real time. The digital control interface surrounding the singer is invented. Really, it's done in Adobe AfterEffects. Also, the singer was shot with two or more initial live action plates with different practical makeup effects.

Thanks, Marney Morris!

What a transform! She really has become fit for any hair-care, and for whatever complexion-advertisement-industry etc.
