Fade (Music Video)

I was looking through the archives for old medical films to use on the video for You Fear You when I ran across this gem. The footage was so nicely shot and the actor perfectly captured what I had in mind when I wrote Fade.

I went through the footage and extracted all the shots. Then I reassembled and edited it to fit the music. There was a lot of time shifting involved (the fantastic shot of him waiting for the train to stop was only about a second long). And of course I added long fades.

The movie is called Point of Return and it was an educational film about suicide. I never actually watched it so I don’t know what the actor was upset about. There were no credits for the actor so I have no idea who played “Charlie”.
