«Looking sexy underwater is no piece of cake»— Siinger Dusty, Dust of Soul
Dusty needs three weeks of intensive training to appear natural as a singer underwater, to keep her eyes open, to relax her facial muscles, and even to perform and “sing”. The filming was carried out on our own during the day and spontaneously at night with the support of Dominic Wälti (Shapex Films) and photographer & lighting assistant Marius Tausch. The make-up, which successfully withstood the wet, was created by Saskia Stäuble in collaboration with the Lucerne make-up artist Leandra Bombelli, who has already done make-up for «LU Couture», as well as at the «Milano Fashion Show», the «Gwand» and at the in Los Angeles award-winning «Dust of Soul» music video “Lost”.
The rough vision of the music film for «Dust of Soul» is always created before filming, but the artists only really get creative while filming. The singer and the pianist followed spontaneous inspiration and ideas and were even surprised by the result. “Everything behaves completely differently under water. We couldn’t imagine this before”, says MiKey, who took over the camera work underwater. “Luckily we can rely on each other and are both flexible and patient enough to experiment.” Over time, it felt completely natural for Dusty to be underwater: “I completely forgot that I couldn’t breathe.”
