“Déjà vu” A new music video clip performed by Frank Rubaie the classical guitarist from Canada specialized in flamenco guitar playing, the music piece was recorded and produced by Babylon Gate Films along with all music arrangements.
When we completed the Déjà vu music production in the house we started thinking of making a music video clip for it, so Firas Sameer was thinking of developing an idea related to the music theme and name. When the right time came Firas started to build the storyboard for the music clip and arranging for the perfect dancer and other people who should work with him to achieve the perfect video for the “Déjà vu” music.
The shooting started in three different locations in Dubai including 1 outdoor location and 2 other indoors and was perfectly implemented completely one day.
Prior to the shooting date, we’ve met professional flamenco dancer and teacher the beautiful model & choreographer Yuliya Baykova who added a value from her experience and designed the final dance with Frank based on Firas’ requirements, Hence we had three dancing sessions with her to create the final dance and to be trained with Frank on how both of them should be dancing.
