I finally got married! No, I’m just kidding. I just dressed up as a bride to shoot a scene for a new music video. Almost one year ago when I had an interview with my friend Maik Stockmann from Radio Rainbowcity, he came up with the idea I eventually realized. The marvelous bridal dress, the romantic veil and the white rose bouquet cost a tremendous fortune to make me the most beautiful bride you’ve ever seen! I better not tell you the amount of money which was spent on my amazing princess outfit … 😉 I decided to leave that to real princesses!
Looking at my snapshots from the shooting you may wonder: Where’s the bridegroom? The honest answer is that Anna Aliena shall always stay single as artistic and personal freedom will fade away as soon as there is a man. Nevertheless, the last song on my forthcoming EP The Wall deals with dreams of love and longing in a state of loneliness. Thus, I play a lonely bride in an empty church walking to the altar with no-one next to her.
The church in the music video
It wasn’t a big deal for me to get access to the right setting for my video! In former times I regularly played the church organ during services, I still do it on Christmas Eve. So I merely travelled back to my home planet, asked for the church key to practise the organ. In reality I didn’t touch the Instrument. I quickly changed clothes and started filming. Due to sunshine outside, the light was great, but all in all it was a very icy experience. At the moment we have minus degrees in Germany and the heating in the church was switched off! However, I can be stubborn and totally disciplined whenever I work on my ideas. So I forgot the cold air, played my role and now I’m satisfied with the outcome.
Anna Aliena: the name is program
After the shooting I felt a bit proud of myself and so I posted a bride selfie on my WhatsApp status. Sometimes I do not think properly because my status is also visible to certain family members (and non-members!) … So what! The video will be tremendous and I’m the best-looking bride in this family although I have no wedding plans in real life.
