There's a hot new property on the intergalactic stock exchange: Planet Earth...would you invest?

Our story...

21 visual effects shots, phone conversations with NASA, international Skype phone calls lasting hours discussing concepts and visual effects, and late night editing sessions and to-do lists with such notes as 'send the Earth to Vince' and questions such as 'how do you travel through a window?'... this has certainly been a roller coaster of a journey that this dedicated, passionate and creative team have embarked upon with lots of love, imagination, late nights and poltergeists...

A stunning video, great concept brilliantly and beautifully executed. An imaginative and visually engaging response to the song. Plus, it has an alien stockbroker; what's not to love? Congratulations, Lauren! Once again you've shown why you are one of the finest filmmakers around!

This is an interesting video. The effects are nice. I appreciate the work put into this video, but I do not find it as engaging as some of the others. Good luck!

well done miss hatchard and crew, great work especially considering timescale and budget (or lack of) it fits the song so well and you can feel the love coming through

I thought this was amazing!!!! I say this because you guys totally captured the image I had in my head for this. I was going to enter, but I didn't have the resources. However, you guys totally took the vision I had and made it way better!!!

So as far as visuals go, this is like 150 percent perfect!!! My only complaint is the lack of story. Usually in music videos, I like to see some kind of story/character progression, but nothing really happened. In fact, I would go so far as to say that this is an amazingly brilliant FIRST ACT, but that's all. I guess I feel like your picture has a lot of unexplored potential.

....just some constructive criticism, take it or leave it. I really did love this, though.

Thank you very much for watching and for your feedback, duly noted! :)

Not every music video has to be all about a story - this is more about the visuals, and visually it is stunning as you suggest. In fact maybe less story and more visuals makes the viewer engage with the song more, which is what it is all about at the end of the day!

Thank you for all your kind comments and support so far, I can't tell you how much it means :)

If you like what you see, please share? You're all beautiful!

Very atmospheric
Clever story board
Excellent graphics
I really like the juxtaposed props, retro-tech meets futuristic, and I have to say, I got it immediately! Despite the fact the lovely Lauren and I had worked together several times only recently, she never did disclose the story line. Regardless, a certain amount of intrigue is always a good idea when it comes to a music video. This could win ..this should win!

Not a bit biased me, but I think she's great. Please vote?!

Incredible video made by a friend of a friend... I'm incredibly impressed myself! Great song, great vid. The production value was really, really high; the effects and props especially caught my eye.

really like the colors/visuals and the characterization :D just an opinion - the story lacks depth, I couldn't understand the relation between them. It was only explicit (for me at least) around half/end of the video. Good job tho! :)

no problem! (btw, the costumes reminds me of one of my favorite bands, Blasted Mechanism. Check them out! For each new album/era, they use different costumes. And this reminds me especially the Plasma era. I think you will see what I mean) :)
