Andy Mihov and Paul Romero Mendez direct a Christmas extravaganza for Kelli-Leigh.In their second collaboration with the artist, the directors explore the very relatable human feeling of wanting to love and feel loved, not just around the holidays but all year round.Boasting luxurious locations, dazzling styling and an overarching feeling of festive fun, it's a brilliant collaboration, which will get viewers in the right mindset for the holiday season. "Our vision for this video was to make it feel grounded and classic, like a film you love to put on in the lead-up to Christmas Eve… but with a tinge of magical realism," Mihov mentions. "The most fun part was planning and doing the transitions, those are always nice technical and creative challenge for filmmakers. The post process was very involved and that’s where the strength of being in a directing duo is really noticeable. We could really share the workload and riff off each other’s ideas, same as we did on set. We had planned for our visual effects and animations to help create that storybook feeling to the video, and we had some really fantastic people helming that.""Bringing on an experienced producer like Millie Ansari was key to achieving this. There were a lot of moving parts to this both creatively and logistically for a one-day shoot. Our DoP and crew were phenomenal, and all praise goes to them for sticking by and believing in the vision we had for this. We were especially proud to receive support from the legendary Imogen Heap in the making of the video."It was a remarkable experience creating this and it got us all in the holiday spirit. Feel like quite a few people from the crew went home to hang mistletoe even though it was still October."
