Behind the scenes: shooting the video for ‘Arena’

On the 4th of July two things close to my heart materialized: the Higgs boson and the video for the upcoming single ‘Arena’. Kristian, who originally helped me compose ‘Arena’ and is singing the backing vocals, was home from New York for the Roskilde Festival, so we hijacked him for the video. Snap. The dancers Elematronics (Maria Miz Gold Guldmann & Julie Joules Kunz) did a spot on choreography and dance for the video, we were blown away. These girls are so young and have a great future ahead of them. Talk about talent.

The video was shot at photographer Bo Egestrøm’s studio in Copenhagen. We felt like kids in a candy store. Bo had everything we needed and he is just awesome.

Tommy did an amazing job directing and shooting, staying cool, calm and creative all day. Elematronics aka Maria & Julie, runner Gustav.

Don’t smile to the camera.

Black or blue? Blue or black? Testing colours on Gustav before they end up on me.

Cake break.

Elematronics doing their magic. These girls rock.

It’s a wrap because the makeup is a mess.

SPECIAL TREAT:


Me and one of my favorite instruments, the jew’s harp. Just a little show-off for a dear friend of mine.
