A few years back I had the pleasure of meeting Lukka. A German born, world traveling musician. After living in several continents it’s safe to say that Lukka is a true vagabond. Lukka, which translates to “Lucky One” is without a doubt an old soul, her musical influences range from classical to contemporary and it shows in her songwriting. “Flower In Bloom” is Lukka’s latest single and for this edition of Play It Again we got to break down this fun video
Play Too Much: Why did you choose this song to make a video for?
Lukka: I recorded a bunch of songs with my previous band in a studio in Greenpoint back in 2014. Flower in bloom was the one which stood out the most as I found it very poppy and catchy.
PTM: That’s awesome, the song is definitely very fun and catchy. Ok, so tell us, where was this video filmed? Give us an idea of the day(s).
LK: All video clips were filmed in Manhattan and Brooklyn over a period of 6 months.
PTM: Wow, six months!? That’s dedication. How did you come up with the video concept?
LK: It all started with my discovery of the time-lapse effect on the iPhone . I was absolutely fascinated by the visual result you get from it when filming, for example a sunrise or sunset . I was wondering how things would look if a person would move at a different speed then the rest of the people in the shot. It had a great effect . It showed the city with its hectic traffic and busy people with one person stepping out of the line. Almost as if she was living in a different world. It was very much how I walk the city in a sort of daydreaming mode without the high step tough. Flower in bloom is a very upbeat song, I thought its a perfect fit to the time-lapse video concept.
PTM: That is so cool. What was the hardest part and most fun part to film?
LK: The hardest part was to film the sunrise as I had to shoot it around 5am in the morning. It was very interesting to see the city waking up. Also, it was very funny to see people’s reactions to a weird slow-mo walking person on the streets. In the end nobody really cared, for example look at the couple in one shot – they just kept on kissing.
PTM: Who do you want to shout out for helping make this video possible
LK: The video is pretty much self made.
