Super disturbing music video for a song by my favourite all time director (David Lynch). I think Mr Lynch would be proud of this!! Congratulations on an excellent video - great theme, special effects, and flow.

Bravo Adod, et Bravo aussi à toute l'équipe. Votre clip très "Lynchien" dans l'esprit a une vraie identité, et un vrai univers. J'adore et j'espère découvrir très vite d'autres vidéos de toi. Très prometteur tout ça !

Nice juxtaposition with the music. Not what I would have imagined for this track, but it's awesome! great stuff.

Merlina 4 years ago

I thought this one would probably win out of the finalists, and it deserved to - still would have liked a less tragic ending but it's a good ironic contrast with the theme of the song. Felicitations.

Amazing work, wether for the plot, the ambiance or for the photography. I was really thrilled bu The Ace Of Diamond, but I think this music video is your masterpiece so far. It matches perfectly with the lyrics of the song, the mood and the David Lynch's atmosphere.I'm really looking forward to seing more of your short movies. x

This video seems me to be the best for this song, because there is a dark poetry in it, whatever is the story.

J'aime beaucoup l'idée, je trouve la réalisation un peu scolaire mais le résultat final est pas mal alors tu as mon vote. Bonne chance à toi.

RichParisWilson 4 years ago

Lynch by the way of Darko. Thought the craftsmanship here was brilliant. The mood, imagery and story are beautiful, and it's a tragic, corrupt piece that really stuck with me. I don't think it's particularly befitting of the song, but maybe that's the point? Or maybe that's what makes it so haunting... Either way, terrific job. Really strong work, inside or outside of this competition.

sans aller dans une interprétation hasardeuse et beyond the beyond de ta video, je trouve que c'est vraiment un super clip et que tu dois avoir du matos de fou!!! bonne chance à toi

Merlina 4 years ago

I think this is and interesting interpretation of the song which clearly depicts the neglected child, and the dream sequence was effective. I found the image of the Dad quite scary! I was, however, disappointed with the ending - made me lose sympathy for the character.

“My son, my son, what have you done…” ;)))
Just a perfect work! I think the best for this song.

Just 2 words to the critic below: the Direction is perfect! Because the story moves in a parallel way: the real world and the “dark wonderland” of the boy with the gloomy projections of the reality which he wants to kill (like change) sand do in some metaphoric or a real way but being in some dreaming mood of just something else like boottrip with the family.

Rahbird 4 years ago

This video is totally astounding and I cannot praise it enough, however isn't it a little dark for David's sentiment? xx

adod 4 years ago

Thank you Rahbird! We'll see. I think it matches the lyrics. So tired of fearing, so tired of dark... He "wanna have a good day today". But eventually does he have it? It's not said...

Great work, félicitations, but Rahbird is maybe right there : a bit too much dark.
Song happy synthetizers.melodies / dancing rythm bring some hope to the lyrics (i guess)

Eddiejones 4 years ago

concept and execution is done just fine...nothing new or original...naive and mean spirited like a spoiled child suffering anxiety in a middle class home. Pieces dont fit together as a whole by the end. But Mr. Lynch does have bad taste in video art...the pick for best experimental film @ the vimeo film festival was atrocious...and he got to judge that with three other lackeys...this will be the winner, no doubt. But i frown upon it and see a downhill.

adod 4 years ago

Thank you for offering me so much of your time to talk about my unachieved video. If you want an explanation about the ending, actually there is one. The murder is premeditated as soon as we see the mother suggesting a funeral wreath instead of a buoy for her son to save his family, calling for help. Then the imagined fireworks symbolize the shots at the end, which is a return to reality. Hope you like the ending now :)

kevha 4 years ago

well done adod

Eddiejones 4 years ago

I did get that on the first viewing...fairly obvious.

You dont need to justify your art.

I do not believe in the way your video to an extent, glamorizes parricide.

It stil doesn't answer where the little boy got the gun and I hope your not going to through the Freudian 'thing'...the ID inside the child stirs up the adult EGO to murder the SUPER EGO to save his family from moral decay...morally I don't like your story. The video doesn't flow naturally with the music...I think it would work better as your own personal short film. Not a music video.

Dark for dark sake, or weird for weird sake...work it with your own voice...as your hero would say.

I think the editing needed more time, its a decent first draft. Your talented kid, but young.

adod 4 years ago

Ok Eddie. Thanks. I guess we could make pages of this discussion. I think you're right I am not going to justify my self any longer. Anyway, I am not deciding who the winner will be. Neither are you. So let's wait. Let's hope. or not ;-)

Eddiejones 4 years ago

Thats the spirit kid!...i have respect for you and your work...your a good sport...good luck!

PS: je Kiffffff

Eddiejones 4 years ago

Nice cinematography, but...weak direction...the narrative is very fragmented and incoherent by the end. The little boy is on a boat and the short film just cuts to the dinner where the boy has a rifle and shot the father....

where did he get the rifle? why did he shoot the father? and what was the point of that???...I get that the little boy is upset with his family but why fantasize to kill your father...the story doesn't have the dramatic arch as lets say "the brothers Karamazov"...it felt like a spike Jones sketch cause it was lacking scenes to connect the pieces.

Was this made as a student short film at first??? and you then decided to cut the footage for this contest???

There are nice visuals...I can see a general crowd enjoying this piece. However, the direction and lack of concern with the narrative really made me cringe when watching. Just my opinion. Interesting attempt.

adod 4 years ago

Hey! Interesting to have a different opinion. This film was made for the clip. To answer you about the narrative, have a look at Eraserhead, or maybe INLAND EMPIRE ;-)

Great work!. Epic production here for a student film. How much did it cost to get lighting, smoke machines, locations, actors, boat on a night storm, etc.? This is definitely worth more than 2000€

Strong and cruelly true to many, unfortunately.
+ suggestion for artist: you could have more votes if you change an image from dad's face to this little boy, main character...
