As you may have guessed by I like a bit of Coldplay now and again. I think this is my fourth cover of one of their songs. Anyway, since the band have just released their 6th album ‘Ghost Stories’ I figured I’d have a go at covering one of their new songs and the first single ‘Magic’ seemed like a good choice.
This started off as a relatively simple video at first but as you’ll see from the finished result things got a bit complicated when it came to editing. I actually ended up spending quite a bit of time in Adobe After Effects to get the look right for each of the ‘Ghosts’, a name that seems to suit them seeing as the album is called Ghost Stories!
Hopefully I’ll find the time write another quick blog post that explains how the visual effects were achieved. For now though make sure your check out the video and don’t forget to Subscribe to my YouTube Channel or Follow Me on Twitter!
