Director Christian F. Schüssler is back with a gem of a music video for the Norwegian artist Maria Mena.
Maria Mena is one of Norway's leading artists with huge success on her previous albums.
"I Don't Wanna See You with Her" is the first single from her new album. It's a very personal song about the breakup of her marriage.
This beautiful video was shot by DOP Espen Olsen, using a Arri Alexa with anamorphic lenses.
The brief for the look was to create a organic grade that wasn't pushed too far.
We developed five main looks:
1. Yellow and a hint of green hues for the party
2. Cool, but still quite neutral hues for the external night scenes on the streets
3. A less saturated urban vibe for the underground train station
4. Warm, saturated tones for the "beauty shots" towards the end of the song
5. Blue hues for the interior night shots in the kitchen.
All in all I think it looks brilliant!
Maria Mena looks great on-camera and gives a impressive performance too.
Kick back and enjoy this loverly track!
