Recently, Gabriele Salvatores has helmed the teen superhero franchise The Invisible Boy.

Talented fashionista turned musician Giulia returns with a brand new music video to accompany her gutsy single ‘Trippin’. Set in space, the video is an interplanetary delight. Giulia (and her fellow cosmic compadres) travel through the stars in an ethereal and elegant way with section of contemporary dance and movement interspersed throughout. The styling of the video is superb throughout, and the addition of UV face-paint gives the video an otherworldly feel. Giulia’s performance is magnetic throughout, and her mesmeric stage presence ensures that all eyes are on her.
