Inspired by Tarot cards, Marielle is a sort of living sculpture within each scene. This was achieved through a combination of the cinemagraph technique, set design, and 3D post production. Filming meant Marielle had to be very still in sometimes uncomfortable positions (i.e. laying in actual snow) for long periods of time.
The scenes and meanings of the cards they represent closely align with the lyrics, making for a powerful imagery experience.
