The music video for Swedish artist David Åhlén takes place at one of Norway´s most beautiful locations, The Atlantic Road.
Director Ann Holmgren wrote a lovely treatment for this video, which I instantly fell in love with when cinematographer Janne Lindgren asked if I would like to grade the piece.
David Åhlén´s song is so mellow, charismatic and full of emotion.
The video is shot during dusk, where we follow a homeless women wheeling her shopping-trolley by the roadside.
She discovers a glowing egg, which she carefully picks up and keeps safe. Early in the morning she wakes up to a surprise.
For the grade the DOP and director wanted an organic evening look, with a slight touch of the cool Nordic light.
