This is the second video for Until My Last Breath. We filmed it with my talented friends
from Same eYes company in Kuusankoski and Kouvola in Finland. The most important thing
was to get Mr. Arvi Lind as our guest for the video. Arvi is one of the most known news anchors
from Finland. It was fun to search old photos and check some filmed material for the video.
I am happy with the final result. My friends did great!
The whole idea for the video was born as the idea for the song itself: the happenings around Michael Jackson’s death.
Since we decided to shoot the video for I Feel Immortal in Iceland, we agreed to make a video for
this one too, since the country and it’s landscapes were so inspiring. I am a scuba diver and
I love the underwater world, so the story for the video is very connected with me.
The director Jörn Heidmann found amazing free diver footage from Guillaume Nery at Dean's Blue Hole,
It seemed a good idea to have a similar video for Until My Last Breath and for I Feel Immortal as both songs are supposed to be released simultaneously in different territories.
There is another video on the planning for UMLB that will be broadcasted later on when the song will be released as a single in GAS.
I have always dreamed to travel to Iceland. When I was looking for a place where we could find majestic, immortal landscapes like the ocean, mountains and waterfalls, the director Jörn Heidmann agreed immediately with the idea of shooting the video in Iceland. I just loved it! The story of I Feel Immortal is very touching and I think many people can feel connected with it. It tells about the cycle of life, with loss, love and hope. There are few other symbols around in the video, but you better dig them yourself and find you own meaning.
I thought it might be a nice idea to let people see what truly happened in the studio while the song Falling Awake was recorded. Since this song was the first song to be released from my new album, I decided to go forward with the idea of showing people a sort of making of video.
We had cameras rolling almost all the time while recording and producing the new album. I finally had more than 50 hours hours of material in my hands and it was a tough job to choose the better ones. In general the making of is a great tool to show what truly happens during the creative process. I had such a good time in the studio with my band so for me it is a very nice memory from What Lies Beneath. There are plenty of moments to cherish.
