Directing a music video for Hani & Zue for their new single ‘Alone’ was one of the best things I’ve ever done in my life. It all started from listening to their song, and I was blown away. How is it that these 2 Malaysian girls - born and raised in Malaysia, could write and sing and sound incredibly like they’ve been in the international music scene for years? It just impressed me so much.
And the fact that they were both hijabis (wearing the scarf), obviously made the entire project more special. I instantly wanted to be a part of it.
I’ve never directed a music video in my life.. so this was very hard for me to start the project. I did everything I could within the budget that I had to make this video a beautiful one for the girls. I hired the best stylist I know that was within our budget - me! It took me maybe 2 weeks to prepare looks for the girls, hiring my dear friend Zul Luey again as Director of Photography, and also my wonderful husband Adam, came in as my assistant director. It was a lot of work, but I loved every minute of it.
Here are some photos from the shoot, and last but not least, the music video and also the behind the scenes.
