In this blogpost we take a quick look at the "reality" behind a music video shoot.
I got the honour of producing Suvi Teräsniska's new music video for her second single "Vaiettu Rakkaus". The video was released today. We had a truly great team working on this project. Samu Amunét from Brother Studios directed the piece, and Janne Amunét acted as the DP. The guys from Cinepic were in charge of the aerial shots. And I had casted my good friend Samuel Taipale as the lead male actor for the video. We also had Hani as the stylist, and Laura Andersson as the HMUA.
Before we get to the differences between the "reality" and the "end result", make sure to check out the music video, so that you know what I'm talking about.
It's funny to see a shoot in progress, and notice how the end result - the music video - can look all nice and peaceful, even though the day of the shoot has been super hectic and FAAAAAAAR from peaceful.
Below you will find a quick video that shows a small preview of how the "reality" and the "end result" are usually quite different:
As you could see from the video, the snow that we used was fake, and we had two guys throwing it around, to make it seem like it'd be snowing. This is just one small example of how the reality often times differs from what the final product looks like. That's one of the reasons I like these shoot days so much. Below I've gathered some BTS-photos from the shoot - enjoy! :)
