A charmingly creative music video that manages to be both simple and complex. The songwriter, Oren Lavie, not only acted in the video but also co-directed it with Yuval and Merav Nathan. The actress is Shir Shomron, and the photographer, Eyal Landesman. According to Oren Lavie’s MySpace page, the video was made from all stills; it took 3225 of them. As usual, it was the 4 weeks of prep that really sustained the two-day shoot. 4 weeks, 2 days, and an incredibly low budget (I’m assuming this since MySpace says everyone either worked for free or for a fraction of their usual rates) later: a more clever, more stimulating, more aesthetically-pleasing, and more imaginative product than any of the music videos I’ve seen lately. I have to admit, it’s a nice break from the scantily-clad women of mainstream music videos and the off-putting self-indulgence of many indie videos.
