Hi Mitch

I would say singer is keyed over the b/g -- dont be fooled by the 'mist' drifting in front of her its easy to add this on another layer.

My vote is largely color isolation & occasional power windows. Note there is almost no green in the otherwise-colorful costume or production design, and note that there is a touch of green fringing around the blonde extras's heads but no chroma spill.

I agree with Chris that the singer in the boat shots may be keyed, though -- that seems an easier approach to production.

Nadia Otzen (the director of this piece) has a tendency to color grade her work in this way- check out her other work:

It's color grading with power masks, no chroma as far as I know.

[Tudor "Ted" Jelescu] "It's color grading with power masks, no chroma as far as I know."

Watching the video again, I see some lowly saturated greens poking through the smoke around the singer in the boat shots around 35-37s -- suggesting the shot is entirely practical and graded with no compositing as you say.

From what I know about the director, she works with practical effects using a lot of color grading in post.
