This week on Music Video of the Week we want to highlight a fashion music video by director Maria Pronin. She has education in journalism, creative (video) production and directing. Not to forget her background in ballet which has strongly influenced her artistic vision.

Let’s take a closer look at one of her recent projects “SVOYA – HOUSE OF PLEASURES” This is what they had to say about it: 

“This narrative explores men’s fantasies and the roles of women forced to fulfill them. All the featured fantasies are often anything but simple. Some seek praise, others crave dominance, some project issues linked to mother-son relationships, and some even reduce women to mere objects. Our goal was to illuminate this sexualized and objectifying world, set within the unconventional backdrop of a brothel. Here, every male fantasy can be instantly gratified with the push of a button, as long as there’s money to spare. It’s a disorienting space, one you yearn to escape, much like the desire to break free from the constraints of societal roles and the preconceived notions about women that many of us struggle with every day.”

The video is captivating us with its complex nature and we will let it speak for itself. Pronin clearly has an eye for aesthetics and fine art –  Check out the full video and other works of Maria Pronin from her instagram: @barkobulka . Last but not least, let’s appreciate the work from the Art Director Archi Manouche and the brilliant DOP/Colorist/Edit/Music Yaroslav Dementev!
