Prince "Seven" City
Back to Design
Have you ever wondered where the city and castle came from in Prince's video for the single entitled "Seven?"

Prince decided that he wanted a city that was a combination of Minneapolis itself, fused with the hybrid style of the film "Barbarella" and the cartoon "The Jetsons".

Working again with Sotera Tschetter, we drew up the design for the set. This time it would be a miniature with the characters dropped in later. The model was created by film professionals, Modern Props, in Los Angeles. It's amazing what can be done with a Kleenex box in the hands of the master model-makers at Modern Props.
