thirty thousand ft. in the air on a 747 when I wrote this..and somehow Mike Zaneski captured the very essence of this song.
Its my fav" now. Mike brought warmth, heart, understanding to this love song...like a friend told me...thats really what its all about.....thanks so much Mike..

https://youtu.be/qTvP3PTBJVg

This is for lovers
Far away places
Memories through amber
the winners and losers.

A song for all seasons
walks along beaches
Heres to the Hero
and hearts left in pieces....

This is for Love

small bridge
as sure as you love, that love will burn...
burn ....burn.
as sure as you love, your going to hurt.


This is for dreamers
And all the believers
The message in bottles
and hearts drawn with arrows.

This is for Love


This is for dreamers
And all the believers......this is for Love

Hi Lane (...and Mike Z. by default):

I can sure understand why this is one of your favorites. It's "pitchable" material and I believe we will be hearing this one on the pop radio stations soon. The last time I was on a 747 we were headed for Honolulu on vacation. We climbed up to the lounge and enjoyed golf stories from Chi Chi Rodriguez (the sword-fighting golfer) who just happened to know our Club Pro. Small world.
Thanks for sharing your fantastic song, Lane. Mike hit another home-run with this one. Best of luck with it. ----Dave

Very pretty...I can hear this as a placement in the world of advertising. Sweet video as well. Looks like a lot of work.

Amen to that. Well done Lane and Mike.

Excellent collaboration guys.
Beautifully written, arranged and produced.

A really nice sound you've got going on here. Well produced, nice depth. I love, love the bridge, how the sound and melody really contrast against the verse. I would have liked just a little variation in the vocals and melody within the verses, particularly given the bridge is short--but that's just my personal preference, and my opinion certainly shouldn't merit much. It's really fine as is, and something to be proud of. Well done!

Pete, Dave, Ricki, David, Nelson, Deej..

Thanks so much for listening and I appreciate the kind comments.

I became emotionally connected to this song the minute I heard Lane's simple demo. Something about that five note repeated vocal melody over those changing chords combined with his lyric--I found it all really moving, and in the spaces between sections, I realized that I wanted to keep the melodic/chordal thing pushing forward, and humming the melody gave the song the perfect feel I was looking for, almost like a vigil. Maybe something I remembered Mocedades (Spanish group) doing ages ago..

Lane's lyric and song says so much to me and I feel lucky and appreciative to be given such beauty to keep alive and share..

Mike

Hi Lane and Mike.
Pretty song and I like the way the intro sneaks the vocal in.

Not sure whether you want a comment on the visuals but I feel the images (though nice) could be slowed down to suit the music.
Maybe linger a little longer on each clip (no shorter than 4 or 5 seconds). At the moment they are rushing by like it was a fast paced rock song.
Might be worth having another go at it.

Lovely.

Vic


It's never too late? Yes it is, so do it now.

If, given time, a monkey can write the complete works of Shakespeare maybe there's hope for me.

Hi Vic,

New video:

https://youtu.be/qTvP3PTBJVg

Usually when I work with video it's much more on the abstract side. I think the problem with this video is it comes stumbling out of the gate and starts ahead of the music and the opening photo is there for just a split second, and so I wanted to fix that so the video isn't starting out unsure of itself. It also ends with too many pictures too fast as well. For the most part, each photo gets the spotlight for 5-6 seconds. I used just 30 over the course of the song and that averages out to one every 5-6 seconds (30 divided by 170 seconds). Each photo has a few variations while it is showing. I wanted each line in the song to have one image to accompany it (while allowing each photo to move and/or vary), I also wanted the pictures to react to the audio/midi, and I wanted the overall "look" to be rather dreamy, so I used the Orton effect (double the video and add a blur to one of the copies and blend the two together) to soften the images.

The picture/variations thing is something I'll stick to for this particular project cuz I like seeing a photo then a variation of it, then another, and reacting to the music before the next one occurs with the next line of the song (I don't feel like it makes things too busy), but seeing some merit in there being "too much information" traveling by too fast, I posterized (used the "darken" blend mode) the video, and that reduces the detail a bit and so it's easier on the eyes. Plus it really brings up the "mist" and "dreaminess" which is what I was going for.

I have much to learn about making this kind of video so I totally appreciate your comments. smile

Mike

Just Plain Quotes
"A lot of people will tell you that preparation is what will make you successful. But I think that people misunderstand exactly what that means sometimes. The type of preparation you need most is the kind that allows you to instantly seize an opportunity, change your course based on a momentary circumstance, and grab hold of the totally unexpected when it happens, and allow it to take you for the ride of your life! That is the kind of preparation that can lead to the most enjoyable type of success." -Brian Austin Whitney
