Agency: Interpartners

This commercials was shot in a field outside of Sofia. Native American culture has always been very attractive to me, so I was happy I got to do a little thing about it, even if only a commercial. It features Pelo, a colleague of mine, whom I’d always thought would make a great Indian chieftain; a very talented little boy, Volen; and the Young Indian, Miro, who got the chance to roll in the grass with two girls, while his pregnant wife, Mira, was relaxing in the shadow. The story itself is preposterous, come to think of it, but the visual side of it was so interesting to create.
