Private Project

2 in a Million

2 in a Million (Director’s Cut) is J.A. Moreno’s personal take on the official music video he directed for twice- Grammy-nominated DJ/Producer Steve Aoki, multi-award winning musician Sting, and platinum-selling trio SHAED.

The video follows two dancers in one long shot, as they relay the feeling of falling in love and being soulmates. Filmed in just thirty minutes at the end of the official shoot, Moreno’s cut focuses on the dancers, seen only as silhouettes in the official version, and highlights their outstanding technical skills and chemistry.

Using the original choreography as a basis, Moreno’s direction delivers a spontaneous, raw and emotionally engaging performance.

Director Statement

On the collaboration:

“Working on this project was a dream. I had already worked on several projects with Steve Aoki, so I knew that we got on well. With 2 in a Million he gave me the chance to do what I love for a music legend like Sting.”

On the director’s cut:

“I was so inspired both by the energy of the dancers as well as the location - the United Palace theatre in New York. It was challenging, as we had to do everything in just thirty minutes (hence why the long shot), but it’s rare to have time to spare at the end of a shoot. I just had to do it”
