Victor Maslyaev

Pharma Film (Ukraine)

In the current variety of films and videos I'm kind of tired of mainstream videography style look and feel and wrote the storyline that harkens back to film cameras era. I wanted to blend a Boogie Nights feel, karate movies of 70s with more modern touch of Ghost (the band) videos and storytelling which combines extravaganza stylisation and fairytale plot line. A cherry on top was how to squeeze my story in the band's budget of $35 000. It turned out to be one 22 hours shift with additional small-crew-shoot for preface and marry-go-round opening scene.

Former pro sportsman-karate and martial arts champion of Ukraine.
