Oaks & Willows
This song struck a chord with all involved. The lyrics about love and loss, needing to let something go, realizations about plans and hopes that would no longer exist – it all meant something different to each of us involved be it from a perspective of losing a Mother, Father, Child, Family Member, Friend or Lover. We all came from different walks with different experiences of loss.
This was created as a kind of send-off for those lingering feelings of sadness in order to let us move forward with new love in our hearts.
We spent long hour days working through revised mood boards and solutions for shots that seemed impossible to execute. We knew we wanted to do all in-camera tricks to maintain the raw emotional feeling. The emotion was real, so the frame had to be too. So we experimented and reimagined. And then we built, rigged and rebuilt again with different panels of steel, glass and plexiglass to achieve the telling of a story of loss by creating a sense of distance.
Collectively we believe we achieved something beautiful, raw and honest that hopefully reflects the song and it’s concept.
