Paris. 2018.For this video
I got inspired by Dolphin's song "Я буду жить"
because of it's wild dynamic and pure aggression. I shot singer Dolphin
2 times in Moscow and I am a big fan of his creative genius that had an enormous impact on me in the 90s and 00s.I shot Gabrielle
from Oui Management. Her charisma
and personality was a perfect match for this music and lyrics.
Filming videos is very different to photography. You act at the same time as a director, screenwriter, director of photography, editor, light assistant... and so on.
You have to keep in mind so many details and nuances and it needs your full concentration.
You create the story by little bricks and little scenes that have to make sense in the end by the final editing. Or maybe not.
Then it comes to editing that can take you days and nights if it's even just 40 seconds.
We started at stylists hotel room and we made filming around the hotel. It took me 2 hours to shoot everything. Most of the ideas came spontaneously and I just let my intuition lead me.
