This MV is the companion piece to Nothing is Right. This song is a nice little ballad and I pretty much kept it a simple two camera shoot capturing Wayne's great singing and playing and the streets sounds all around.
It is always an honor to work with Wayne Hsu. He is an amazing artist and is not only a gifted singer songwriter but also has an excellent ear as a studio engineer. The three of us won a trailer contest for the Philadelphia Asian American Film Festival with Wayne scoring the music for our little 60 second animated film.
I've been meaning to put this together for Wayne for a long time but just got busy. We shot this in March when it was still pretty cold. Many music videos use the studio version of the song. I wanted to make something on the street and recorded live. In doing this MV, I wanted to try to capture the moment and capture the neighborhood of Philadelphia's Chinatown.
I also wanted to test out a few c-mount lenses and compare a Computar 25mm f/1.3 lens and and older Kodak Cine Ektar 25mm f/1.4. Everything was shot wide open with just the available light at 1am in the morning.
Please visit Wayne Hsu's site. His new album will be coming out very soon:
