Inspired by James Blake – RetroGrade
One of my hobbies is to take songs that I like and create videos with my interpretations on them, so when I first heard Retrograde by James Blake, I knew that i will do something with this song, so I did
Jame Blake moves me with his voice, there’s something about the way he sings that kicks me in the stomach, making me emotional therefore when I heard Retrograde it immediately became one of my favorite songs (and most played for long time). So when I was thinking of a song to record a video for, it was obvious for me that I would want to record it for retrograde and bring my interpretation for it.
As many of you know I was working on TV for 9 years and the passion for directing, filming and even Video Editing will always be big part of my DNA, so when my friend Yotam came to visit me in London I felt that it’s time to combine my urge to create with the James’s Blake song that inspires me so much with having beautiful and talented model like Yotam.
So I got Yotam into the bath, which was for cold for some moments and hot for some others because I wanted to get different expressions and feelings from him. In the background we listened Retrograde and then started creating.
Editing took about an hour and half since I really had to rush and start packing for my flight to NYC.
So after this long introduction, I’ll let you decide – If you like my interpretation for James Blake’s Retrograde.
I really hope you like it and if you know James Blake, please show it to him too… I wonder what he would think of it.
