Mashup of Royals by Lorde, California Love by 2Pac, and Loser by Beck. Using the chords and melodic riff of California Love, and layered it underneath the melody and words of Royals. The outro is a combination of the hook from Loser and the vocals from the bridge of Royals.
The video was filmed in one take, using only a single projector and pieces of white foam core. We built the projections using Final Cut Pro 7 – no mapping software or math or anything. They just held up the foam core and used the “distort” tool in Final Cut to mash around the images until they fit onto the foam core pieces.
