In the beginning, when I was asked to direct Reyko's "Spinning Over You" music video, I had considered the possibility of mixing real image with animation, more or less in a 50%-50%. But the idea of using only one of the two seemed to me more and more interesting as I started going over the proposal in my head: I thought about going from 2D to 3D and to generating “constructed illustrations” to appear alongside Soleil and Igor, the two members of Reyko, integrating them in the same composition.

As for the idea and the concept, all the video is centred on one premise: placing Soleil in a totally Surrealist and labyrinthine world, where her character roams in that state of “love hypnosis” the song transmits. It’s about, thus, playing with the idea of a geometric perfection that at the same time ends up as an illusory, hypnotic and labyrinthine game. I also liked the way in which this whole universe fitted the almost whispered and dreamy tone Soleil uses to sing the song.

One of the first steps to follow was to start sketching, composing and looking for colours. It’s the usual process I always follow to create my illustrations. I also wanted to give the piece some brush strokes inspired by artists I love, like Oskar Schlemmer, Magritte, Jean-Paul Goude or several 80s artists. Taking all this as a base, Alexandra Jordana, the Art Director, started working and digging deeply in these ideas to be able to make them come true.

These are some of the sketches and colour tests I did at the beginning. Some ended up appearing as such, working as a kind of storyboard
