Music Video For I Love The Way You Shine

Project 2012-02-22 01:55:04 +1300

I'm Kim, I'm a singer songwriter (and a bunch of other stuff, but that's less important right now).  A few months ago my friend (Adam Simpson) came to me with the idea for a song, storyline, music video and one line of lyrics, and asked me to write the song around it.  I did, and we reckon it's pretty good.

I got in touch with my old friend Sam Wills, who's currently doing pretty darn well in the UK as The Boy With Tape On His Face (He's doing a TV show with the BBC and just played at the Royal Variety Performance).  I asked if he'd like to play the romantic lead in the video... he said yes.

Now we need to raise enough money to mix, & master the song, and to shoot, edit and produce the video.  We all have some pretty healthy connections to help getting a lot of this work done pretty afford-ably, but there are raw costs that have to be paid.  We're asking people to help us raise $4000.00

We think this is a pretty cool project, combining three highly creative people, each doing what they do best, to create something exciting, quirky, moving and fun.

Here's a little sample of the song... just a verse and a chorus, partly because we hope it's interesting to hear the process unfolding bit by bit... partly because we're teases.




And...

Here's the synopsis for the "I love the way you shine" music video...

'A boy, his scooter, and the most beautiful girl in town.  It’s the wonderfully simple premise for the music video in which the boy (…with tape on his face!) has somehow managed to score a date with the girl. 
 
The boy pulls up at the girl’s house on his gleaming midnight blue scooter.  He gives it a quick wipe and the girl comes out. Though clearly not impressed by him or his scooter, she gets on the bike and the boy sets about winning her over as they ride through Wellington, where he is apparently the leader of a scooter gang, and as the day grows dim they head into his imaginary, perfect world full of  UFOs, Dinosaurs and other cool retro sci-fi scenes from 1950s movies.
 
As she warms to all of this, the ride drifts into the girl’s perfect imaginary world of warm embraces and…kisses! from more old movies.
 
They ride back into a stunning Wellington morning and pull up back at her house where the girl asks the boy inside.  He looks into her eyes and they have a moment, then he turns and rides off realising that what he really likes is his strange and wonderful world, and what he really loves is the way his scooter shines.'

Hey there,

I've just updated the soundcloud link, so you can now listen to a whole verse and chorus of I Love The Way You Shine.  It's a rough mix, but I think you'll agree, it's sounding pretty nice...  Hopefully you'll wanna tell all your people? ;-)

Here's a snippet of the song... well, at least the rhythm track, so you get an idea of how it'll all sound...  Hopefully it'll get you thinking about who else you can encourage to jump in!


Song is close to finished

"I love the way you shine" is close to completely recorded... (just the song, not the video)

Once we have the rough mix done, we'll post it here for you, so you can feel even more encouraged to get involved and support this...

Stay tuned!
