Tehtaantyttö is the second music video I’ve done for the band M. I think this is my first music video that hasn’t been shot in one day.
Planning the first scene with the car falling from the sky I was certain we’d have to do some computer trickery. But when I explained my idea at the junk yard, they just told me: “No worries, we can easily lift the car up to 10 meters in the air and drop it”. It was very controlled and they knew exactly what angle to drop it in to get it to land upside down. Seemed like maybe they had done it a few times before…
The rest of the video was shot at Omenapuutalo in Helsinki. We had a few tungsten lights blazing straight through the windows, Anna-Mari also rigged some party lights and we had a super small smoke machine that you were able to carry in your hand. We didn’t only choreograph the dancers with Maija Nurmio but we also had to choreograph Anna-Mari’s actions, you can see her three times in the take and in between she’s using the smoke machine. The script was quite planned but the choreography was mostly done on the spot with Maija.
A huge thank you to everyone who worked on the video!
