This is a DIY stop motion music video for the song "Some Will Have To Go" by Vancouver raised, Montreal based canadian pop songwriter Char2d2. The song is taken from her debut EP "Small Vampires" co-produced by Tegan Quin (Tegan & Sara) alongside John Collins (The New Pornographers) and David Carswell (The Smugglers).
the music video is all about the analogy between love and weather, seasons and (time)travelling. it's a never ending cycle. when making this video i had this quote in mind (can't remember where it's from) "love, it's over when it's ending but it's ending from the start". yet again there is enough surprises around so that the end of one thing will be the soil for the next thing to grow onto. starting all over again. rising phoenix, ashes and all that jazz.
