CONGRATULATIONS, ITS A MUSIC VIDEO



by jove, we've finished it at last! after spending an obscenely lengthy spell in reubens' cave, here are the fruits 
of our long-time (and extremely delayed) labour. my debut music video for Watercolours - 'Under'


this video required many a dive roll into survival mode. i weathered:


- reubens' smut mouth
- barreling headfirst into a ditch whilst on wheels
- the horrors of technology
- my mothers' wrath when she discovered the thousands of bugs we accidentally let into the house after using 
the lightbox outside with the door open (insects really dig that thing)
- hungry cats (it licked my hand)
- too much fun 


x chelsea jade




EDIT: i feel mighty priviliged to be having this pop on so many of your blogs! just a note though: could you 
please credit it as a 'watercolours' video/song instead of 'chelsea jade'? 


it's the official name of my music project, you see! xx

  1. *deep breath* it's beautiful, wonderful, rhythmic, mesmerizing. Kinda naturally harmonious, the video and the track, enhance each other.

  2. wondrous. i think i like it, some parts over others, esp the cycling ones at the start and the end, as well as the clouds in the shifting circles. what's the hardest part to do? what about the horrors of technology?

  3. the hardest part was having no money whatsoever to make it and having to rely on the dregs of peoples spare time as a result. also, the technical learning curves are dizzying for people who have never done this before. you have to get to know all sorts of thing about compression and formats and just how to use editing software in general. it's really involved but we learnt heaps and definitely want to shoot more to get better at it!

  16. Stunning! The song is beautiful, I hope to see you perform in person if I'm ever on the north island. I have to admit to being crap at checking blogs lately, so the first place I saw this video was Anabela's blog Fieldguided! So great to see people spread the love
