Bosnia&Herzegovina’s two time Eurovision representative and Balkan music legend – Dino Merlin releases a video for “Sve Dok Te Bude Imalo” a song that appears on his 2014 album “Hotel Nacional”.
Dino manages to pull our heartstrings with a very meaningful music video and a perfect Balkan tune to go along with it.
Sve dok te bude imalo
One of Dino’s most popular songs out of his 2014 album “Hotel Nacional” finally came to life. The music video is shot in multiple locations across Sarajevo, the most memorable being Vjecnica. The video credits go to directorial duo Haris Dubica and Edvin Mulalic.
Their undeniable artistic sense goes to great lengths by using a post-production technique called paralax or 2.5D.
In addition to their brilliant creative, by using this technique they make Dino come alive in paintings.
Rather than just letting the song do the talking, they certainly make the video says a lot. The metaphorical message of the music video suggests that sometimes being able to see and seeing is not the same thing. The world from a loved one’s eyes can make you see things rather than just look at them.
The music and the lyrics of song are Dino’s while the melody is a the work of the famous clarinet player Hüsnü Şenlendirici (Taksim Trio).
On this particular track Dino collaborates with a the famous British produced – Yoad Nevo. Yoad’s long list of clients include Sia, The Pet Shop Boys, Bryan Adams, Sugababes and many others.
