Ukrainian Shelter.film is one of the production companies behind the new hit music video of British pop star Dua Lipa.
The video for “We’re Good,” the first single released by the singer this year, was published on Feb. 11. It has already reached more than 9 million views.
Set on the infamous Titanic, the piece features Lipa as a ship singer performing in glamorous outfits, as a lobster drama unfolds right across the restaurant room.
“This project is quite complex and specific in production,” Albert Zurashvili, the executive producer of Shelter.film, told Ukrainian music outlet Slukh.
In the interview, Zurashvili says that the shooting in Kyiv took two days with two sets and two directors working simultaneously.
However, Lipa didn’t come for filming in Ukraine. The scenes featuring the singer were shot in the United States.
In the video, Lipa performs at a restaurant on a cruise ship, while diners taste fresh lobsters. A still-alive lobster in an aquarium appears horrified by its impending future.
The events in the video resemble the story of Titanic. As the ship goes to the bottom, the crash sets the lobster free.
For the project, Shelter.film collaborated with the duo of famous Israeli directors Vania Heymann and Gal Muggia. Their most prominent work was the Grammy-nominated music video “Up&Up” for the U.K. band Coldplay.
Another star on the “We’re Good” lineup is Hungarian cinematographer Marcell Rev, who worked on the sensational U.S. TV series “Euphoria” and the recent Netflix-produced black-and-white romantic drama “Malcolm & Marie,” starring John David Washington and Zendaya.
Though Shelter.film appeared on the market only about two years ago, it has made headlines multiple times. The company made music videos for another pop star Tove Lo and French rapper Damso. Commercials for Playstation, IKEA and Renault are also on the production’s record.
“We’re Good” was released on ”Future Nostalgia: The Moonlight Edition,” the second reissue of Lipa’s 2020 Grammy-nominated album “Future Nostalgia.” The reissued record features 13 songs from the original album, along with six fresh songs including “We’re Good.”
