Behind The Scenes in Kiev

It’s not too often cameras follow directors on a music video. But in this case it was notable, as the worst winter in decades for Kiev, Ukraine (thats -30 degrees) found us scrambling to stay warm through two days of shooting. Add to this 4 locations, 3 company moves, dozens of extras, and you have yourself a 30 hour shoot – plus a few hours of b-roll shot in Paris. But enough with words; the behind the scenes of Kamaliya and Thomas Anders “No Ordinary Love” will tell the story…
