Michal Bolland's Cinematic Promo for Andrew Bayer

Shot in 4 days in the Slovak and Polish Tatras Mountains, Radar director Michal Bolland's video for Andrew Bayer is truly majestic. 

Michal talks us through his treatment and the shooting of the video: “First time I heard 'Need Your Love', immediately this image came to my mind. I knew that to catch the feeling of the song, we have to shoot it in a desolate, remote, but also beautiful surroundings.

Apparently the track has this very positive and gentle vibes, but I also felt like there is a secret hidden beyond this. Some sort of charm combined with a mystery - and this is something what I really like in women. I knew who have to play the lead part and I'm glad that Kasia Smolinska said "yes" to the project. I'm not only delighted about her performance, but she's also just a great person to work with.

The key to success to shoot this video was mostly the logistics. We spent a lot of time looking for suitable locations, that not only look good, but also are accessible for the film crew and they are not far away from each other. Finally I decided to go to Polish and Slovak Tatras Mouintains.

We had 4 long days in a row of shooting in very difficult terrain in July, which is the most rainy month there. It was a little gambling, but we made it work. I'm very proud of the whole crew, especially the kids. I had a chance to work with fantastic and talented people, so I'm even more grateful to Andrew and Anjunabeats for choosing me to direct it.”

Allan from Anjunabeats said that “Michal's treatment stood head and shoulders above all the others we received - it was creative, ambitious, intriguing and most of all captured the beauty and hypnotic allure of the track perfectly. Obviously a treatment is just that and the proof is in the pudding…. but the final execution actually surpassed our expectations by some distance. It is a beautiful video that we are incredibly proud to have in our collection.”
