Surreal Video Transforms the City of Paris into an Empty Film Set

By Casey Chan on at

When you walk around Paris in real life, you can’t help but pretend you’re inside a film. It’s the architecture, it’s the energy, it’s the people, it’s the city of light and you can’t help but romanticise your experiences there. This clever video of Paris, Apparences from Claire & Max, uses that dreamy quality of the city and transforms the buildings and structures into surreal film sets. The editing is so good, famous buildings look like they only have the front face and we’re exploring an empty playground.

Claire & Max write:

What if our environment was like a movie set? What would be our life in this fake world?

“Apparences” is a 4K short film showing Paris like a fake city with ghostly human presence.
