Golden Square has completed the post-production on the new Siouxsie Sioux promo, Into a Swan – marking the return of legendary Siouxsie and the Banshees lead vocalist and former member of Sex Pistols entourage, the “Bromley Contingent”. This is the first promo featuring Siouxsie performing as a solo artist.
The vision of the Crossroads directorial duo Harvey and Carolyn involved creating edgy multiple images of Siouxsie which appear on screen simultaneously. Some of this was achieved in camera using a series of intricate mini sets involving mirrors and beauty lighting.
Lead smoke artist, Aman Kang of Golden Square, worked closely with the directors to recreate and enhance this mirrored reflection effect in post and make sure Siouxsie was looking glamorous and powerful. Dressed in black and looking like a dominatrix Siouxsie comes across as a force to be reckoned with.
Lighting effects and the sparkly outlines of birds were also composited on in post to accentuate the breaking out into a swan symbolism and add to the drama. Aman also created a strong marching army of aggressive swans from one single ballerina in costume.
