Calvin Harris ft. Rihanna 'This Is What You Came For' by Emil Nava

Calvin Harris ft. Rihanna 'This Is What You Came For' by Emil Nava

Emil Nava is as slick as he is prolific, and he certainly proves that with this video for Calvin Harris and Rihanna's This Is What You Came For - his eighth video this year.

Occupying a huge, white, otherworldly cube, Rihanna takes centre stage as her surroundings chop and change around her. Using a combination of exterior shots, projection mapping and lasers, Nava and his team produce some incredible visual illusions, including an awesome piece with a parked car and some cool perspective trickery.
