New video will be directed by Antti Jokinen
New Nightwish music video will be directed by Antti Jokinen. Jokinen has directed music videos for such huge artists like example Celine Dion, Eminem and Shania Twain. Music video from the first single "Nemo" is supposed be ready in April when single is released. At this moment Jokinen is in Rome working as an assistant director in Renny Harlin´s new film "Exorcist: The Beginning". The budget of the video will be biggest so far in Nightwish history. The storyboard of the video made by Tuomas Holopainen and Tero Kinnunen is ready but Jokinen has a permission to change the story if necessary. "This is a very sad and heavy, ballad-like song. Video has a thin storyline which tells not so much of love but more like despair and hope" - says Nightwish manager Ewo Rytkönen.
