Music videos are fun they are quick you dont neccary need to go with the lyics but you have to feel the rythums and tones through the lence which sets the mood. Theres a new style of musci videos where they are telling real interesting short storys. A music video is the extenision of a piano or gurtar strings its not that easy to do. As you can see.

I did a music video at film school called when you smile. I had no budget only enough for a slice and coffee after the shot. A actor that was a lawyer. I had no crew filmed on a hand herld camera had to get up at 6am to catch the right light. There was only two of us. It took three hours before the light changed and 2 weeks to edit not to good at that. And the only bref I had is that my tutor wanted was that the wanted to feel something. Which was right up my ally Im all about feeling something lol. Cheek it out its on my youtube channel your find my name in my other post. I thought I better put my money where my mouth is. lol.

1: I did not say the video was horrible.

2: I never referred to his wife, I even praised her ( according to what appears in public square).
I commented and analyzed only one of his sentences about the song.
(which seemed relevant to my comment here, since it is about the song ) that I found the biggest lie ever.
I do not know his wife and I do not even want to know.
Far from it. I reaally think she must have the biggest heart to love him.

3: There are certain people here who find it amusing to persecute and insult me.
Show more of what you are than what I am.
There is much evil in your hearts.
But I do not go here to please you. I comment only on what I think, whether I like it or not, as a fan I am a long time ago.
My posts have no lies, no filters. And my post wasn't nasty.
Stop seeing evil or misunderstood everything i write.
Sorry if i'm being ostracized for not being a native speaker.

I'm already sick of your complaints. You seem so imature !

Complaint to Billy ! Billy is the only one who can get me out of here.
With that you may be more rich and happy as human beings. Congratulations!

Billy : If you are reading this, let me know if you want me out of here. As i said, i'm not allowed to send you private messages.
God knows and you why?!


4: There is something very positive about this video: my big yes for curvy and black women.

So you don't like what I wrote. That's how other people feel when you make nasty implications about about them.

@ladyapplebox, I agree the video isn't edgy. I really like the dancers. I thought they brought out the rhythm of the song very well. Because of their dance I heard parts of the melody I hadn't notice before. I really wish I can see what you have in mind, I'd probably enjoy it. You have a point.

I can't help but feel a bit badly for James, because his other videos have been a bit artsy (wisemen, YB, WIFLA) and people seem to scratch their head. So here's a straight forward video, and still people don't like it.

Likewise, he sang a song about someone beautiful and he's criticized for seeming shallow. Now he has a song that's the opposite of that, about someone whose love healed him; and people saying "pffft ... as if." I just wanna give the poor guy a hug.

InnerSense I too felt a bit ashamed at the level of analysis. So harsh
Granja, you have no idea how hurtful your words are; or do you?
One thing in life that tries my patience deeply is people that preach spirituality but don't notice the toxicity of their own core.

At her own suggestion, I've banned Granja for a period of time. As you yourself, say, this place will be more pleasant without you. You can lie to yourself thinking you're a nice person, but if kind people, as well as others less kind to you, think you are rude and unpleasant, then you probably are just rude and unpleasant.

Thank you Billy, I think the ban is deserved. It will be pleasant to be free of the vitriol for a while.

Love Me Better is starting to pick up, getting heavy rotation on radio in Italy, and increasing well in Australia, Germany and France. The UK is proving a struggle, particularly Heart Radio not playing it.

It sounds exactly like the sort of music kids listen to today. Just need to be heard by the right audience.

James Blunt 'Love Me Better' by Vaughan Arnell

One look at his Twitter feed will tell you that despite your feelings for James Blunt, the man is incredibly self-aware. And self-deprecating to a tee. A recent Blunt line went: ""You thought 2016 was bad? I'm releasing a new album in 2017."

With that as a driving force, Vaughan Arnell reunites with Blunt to provide the ideal vehicle for the album's first single Love Me Better, blending hyper-colourful pop slickness and tongue-in-cheek humour in the kind a location the singer knows only too well - a neon-drenched nightclub.

And tonight, Blunt happens to be the least popular patron in the club - but coming to terms with his fate. Imagine if Nicolas Winding-Refn's Only God Forgives was actually about a 42-year-old man who can't keep up with nightclub culture despite his best intentions and you're most of the way there.

I like to read some info from the video makers.

http://www.themill.com/portfolio/3432/love-me-better

Working with Director Vaughan Arnell out of Moxie Pictures, The Mill helped to create this new promo for James Blunt’s latest track, ‘Love Me Better’.

Viewers follow Blunt as he spends an evening in a nightclub, brimming with people dancing and enjoying themselves. Rather than joining in the fun, Blunt remains separate from the other party-goers.

It is clear from the start that Blunt is portrayed as the ‘outcast’ of this scene, with other characters holding questioning stares in his direction and clever shots that show his isolation. Even though he is surrounded by a busy sea of people, the camera moves slowly around him, bringing him into focus as he sings.

With a distinctive grade that nods towards a disco aesthetic mixed with a slight under-ground feel, the visuals create an atmospheric setting and cleverly mirror Blunt’s pride and defiance of being different among others.

Talking of the project, Colourist Oisin O’Driscoll comments:

"Bright colourful neon lights throughout the shots drove me to a contrasting saturated disco feel. Using shapes to isolate characters and create depth on the people dancing in the background, I managed to create a really punchy feel. I shifted most frames to a cooler mid-tone to compliment the strong coloured highlights and to give a science fiction feel to some."
