I LOVE making videos. I love planning them, shooting them, and editing them.
The idea for this one was (for the vast majority of it) to shoot it with a single view, and create most of the activity with just edits. And to heighten the movement, all the performances were done to a slowed-down version of the song, and then sped up to match the actual track.
