Hey Martin, yeah it's in the wrong section, but COLIN or BRIAN or someone who is actually awake with move it.
I'm guessing you wish a critique, if not,just sweep the comments.
Your first attempt at video ?
First off, what a beautiful song, can't fault that.
The still cinematography is just beautiful. Are those your own model/photographers shots or stock footage ?
I'd have to say for a first attempt, it's not too shabby.It is what I would refer to as a story board.
We have the 3 elements, love/lost love, a weird sequin to provide intrigue, and the finale of the bloke who really misses her. Because you are using stills, the subtly of her actions are lost. But because this is only a story board, it's intent comes across well. The actress is beautiful, and you can sense her sense of longing. It's the small things she may do in movement, or a slight facial expression which will give it depth. The use of the girl with the clock is a nice touch and repeated as it is, provides a strange form of continuity.
I'm quite opposed to lyrics in a music video.Delete !
I am of a protagonist of Microsoft transitions. They cheapen a piece and destine it for the YouTube of white noise.There are so many talented editors who practice their craft, and they're only students who put out great results..Perhaps you could contact a film/TV studio near you and work with local students ?
You'll notice quite a few artists, who simply appear in their videos and don't even sing.
It is not fair to compare one to another, because of the budget ,but one track I try to get across is https://www.starnow.com.au/media/405247
. ( And yes, my own daughter appears in it, and it's only an advert } The main meaning is that the song and vision appear to be unrelated yet are deeply entwined, yet have no apparent relevance.That is due to the vision mixer, not the audio director.
You can do the same as well, with thought, and especially collaborating with others, your video will turn out great,
PS - the guys who wrote tune, one guy from the middle of Tasmania ( no-where ) and a very well known Japanese violinist travelled with the film crew and wrote the song as they experienced new experiences.
