Director Statement

I chose to direct this music video because I promised I will help Sun ILuzia to create a visual part of his song. Working with Sun ILuzia is always a great experience for me since I can sense his soul art and we somehow connect despite having very distinct character types. The experience working on this film will help me with future projects because since this was my first attempt at making a music video in 4K quality, the skills I gained working on this film will be useful for future endeavors. Since I regularly film videos in Full HD, this experience really helped me see the limitations of my technique. Additionally, the nighttime scene made me aware of how crucial the role of lights is, and I had to consider which choice would work best with our lights. I'm hoping that one day I'll be able to use additional lights. Another pleasant experience was that we were free to express our creativity on the set as we were improvising. Additionally, I felt that nature was assisting us in improving some of our shots.
