I happened to be in the right place at the right time as she was giving a gemstone meridian massage to one of her staff who happily consented to be in the video. I edited the video the next day while still at the festival.

Fedor Myschkin – the hit for vodka

Music Video

[vimeo id=”82639473″ align=”left” mode=”lazyload” autoplay=”yes” maxwidth=”300″]Fedor Myschkin ran out of vodka. Together with his comrade Iwan he sets out to produce a song in order to make money and buy more vodka. Will he succeed?

I shot part of this video in two days and four locations in Hamburg while Moscow-based DP Anlexandr Tretjakewitch shot scenes of Fedor Myschkin in several locations in Moscow. Editing was shared between Fadi Gaziri and myself; however Fadi did the main chunk of editing.
