I’ve debated starting this theme for a few weeks, and I ultimately decided I would as it would encourage me to looks for options that actually fit what I’m aiming for. If one pays too much attention to Top 40 type music you tend to see a dearth of creativity in the music video form. The music video is spawned from short films and can be as creative if not more so than their predecessor. Far too often it does just become singing heads. I want to try and buck that trend and find ones both new and old that do something somewhat outside the box, at the very least have some sort of visual narrative. Here we go.
The Blue Neighbourhood Trilogy
This one was supposed to be posted a while ago. When the video for “Wild” came out I knew this was going to be something special but I lost track of the releases. At long last, here is the whole of The Blue Neighbourhood Trilogy.
Whether this narrative in anyway reflects your personal life I think is irrelevant. The songs, cinematography, and performance are excellent and can communicate to all. As I watched this I had goosebumps for about 12 minute straight.
