Music Video of The Week
What is this Thing: Herschel’s MV Pick of the Week
Things Type: Music Video
Notes: This weeks MV of the week is a concept/performance video that I was attracted to because of the cinematography. The Sepia/Black and White and Color Grading all seemed to melt together in a unique coalesce of music and images that seem to work. I wasn’t really hot about the ending though. But sometimes it’s hard to get out of a music video concept cleanly.
