Thanks again for all the amazing feedback guys!

your support has actually won the video some dubious youtube honours haha!

Honors for This Video:
#87 - Most Discussed (Today) - Music - United Kingdom
#83 - Most Viewed (Today) - Music - United Kingdom
#41 - Top Favorites (Today) - Music - United Kingdom
#43 - Top Rated (Today) - Music - United Kingdom

This is flattering indeed. We never saw the finished product as a masterpiece and it was quite a bit away from the perfect product i'd envisaged, but im relatively happy with the way it turned out. There are some shots that I hate and others i love. I didn't like the location for the cafe and it would have been nice to have spent more time and money on it, but we had deadlines and a very small budget so we had to do what we could with that.

Thinking about doing This Time or Heroes and Thieves next. We had a pretty good idea for Heroes and Thieves and a fantastic one for More than This. The More than This idea was far too lavish for us to afford though, and trying to do it on no budget would have been impossible.

Hopefully getting a better camera for the next video i make anyway.

I should point out im NOT generally a director. I don't want to direct long term. I think its a fun hobby and I enjoy doing it but can't picture myself in that career and think you need to be more totally gripped and motivated by the creativity of film than I am for the job.

I am usually a producer. But im heading into film marketing and distribution longterm. Hopefully if im on the right salary i can also keep making films in a few years time. But i've got the equipment of my university at my disposal for another two years ish so im going to try and do some more videos while i still can!

The close-up shots of the violin are made of win. And I like the red in the piano-playing shots. I don't know if that was intentional, but it looks awesome.

im glad you all enjoyed it, thanks again for teh comments!
we had our class showing yesterday and it definitely was up there as one of the best, if not the! Which is good news. I really liked how it turned out and we are maybe filming another one for either "Who's to Say" or "Heroes and Thieves" soon!

Don't know how soon though since its an external project out with university.

PLEASE PLEASE Who's to Say....
I've always wished I could do one for it... All acting out, telling the story. and when lip-singing, they are talking to another person.
And at the end, the girl(or boy=]) holds out their hand to their boyfriend or whatever and says "stand up boy," then they're face to face and he's standing up, and (s)he goes "I shine SO bright when you're aaaround..." And they kiss, or hug or do something really sweet.
But that's always how I wished it would be... haha
I do hope Who's to Say's the one you do though. It's probably got the most emotion of all the songs she has... I think C'est La Vie does too, but in a more angered energetic kind of way.

We will see! I mean i don't want to just do all vanessa carlton videos, but there are stories there to be told, so it's hard to just ignore that.

Heres the last promotional picture from the Fools Like Me stuff.

Omg that is phenomenal! That and the hand-hold one are really awesome, not that the other one isn't too, but those two are my favs, haha. You're great at photoshop (or whoever does it)!!!
But yeah, I don't think doing just V music vids should be a goal, because eventually it'll get a little repetitive, but I def think you should do Who's to Say, but H&T, I dunno, it just isn't such a story-telling kind of song, and not nearly as emotional and Idk... Who's to Say just would create a better video than H&T by farr. I'll be disappointed if you don't do Who's to Say now cause my hopes are all up and shit... Hahaha.
But do what you will, obviously, it's your video after all! It will be great, I know, if not better than Fools Like Me.
*Dreams about the perfect video for Who's to Say*
