Jihae – Illusion of you

Working directly with critically acclaimed director Rajan Mehta and recording artist Jihae, Del Sol edited this music video. “Illusion of you” is the first single from Jihae’s fifth album, released in 2015. The concept of the video was to show Jihae as an illusion without using any special effects or digital manipulation. Cinematographer Mota Sinabel did an amazing job capturing Jihae as an illusion. As an editor, Del Sol wanted the cuts to be as sharp as the guitar stabs in the song. In the end Del Sol successfully lobbied that Jihae’s face be inverted to create a strobe-like effect at the song’s climax.
