Italian Professionals Netherlands, the main promoter and initiator of this project, sends to all partners and collaborators the gratitude and the greatest appreciation for the work developed. The music video was originated from an idea of Vincenzo Toscani and Andrea Maddalena, who developed the concept.


“As We Are Lying” music video is the latest Monkeyshoot Studios production directed by Matt Jaems, and it is based on a song by Andrea Maddalena, alias Skimming Water, a widely appreciated multifaceted artist, performing live in many popular music venues in The Netherlands.

The song is inspired by the painting “De Koppelaarster”, from the caravaggist painter Gerard van Honthorst, visible in the Utrecht Central Museum where some of the scenes of the video were actually shot.  Carmelinda Gentile, Director of Korego Theater Group Amsterdam, actively collaborated to the project. The music video is starring Italian, Dutch and English actors, in a multicultural collaboration.
