I wanted to make a music video that had a little more than just the music to picture. I wanted to make a mini story with a song – more like a musical. I’ve always loved musicals. So I started from the song and worked my way into a story with a little script.
I took the lines write into the song like some of the musical masterpieces have done of the ages. To do that what I actually had to do was start the intro music while lines are still being spoken. I learned this from a neat Youtube video that analyzed the Disney renaissance cartoon movies of the 1990s. This helps with our suspended belief and allows us to flow into the emotion of a song, rather than just bursting into song which would be rather jolting in real life.
Besides the enjoyment of a good musical story, I thought making a mini one song musical would give me a little experience in the genre. One day I’d like to be more involved with making musicals for film. Yeah I really like musicals.
Here’s the Mini movie musical
And ye shall ahallow the fiftieth year, and proclaim bliberty throughout all the land unto all the inhabitants thereof: it shall be a jubilee unto you; and ye shall return every man unto his possession, and ye shall return every man unto his cfamily.
And ye will not suffer your achildren that they go hungry, or naked; neither will ye bsuffer that they transgress the laws of God, and fight and cquarrel one with another, and serve the devil, who is the master of sin, or who is the devil spirit which hath been spoken of by our fathers, he being an enemy to all righteousness.
