IT IS RARE THAT A MUSIC VIDEO COMES ALONG WHICH CAN BE DEFINED AS GROTESQUE AND BEAUTIFUL. THE CONTENT MAKE ME FEEL SICK AND ANY ATTEMPT TO FURTHER ANALYSIS WOULD NOT DO THE VIDEO JUSTICE, AS I ONLY HAD THE STOMACH TO SEE IT ONCE.
It is almost like the spirit of David Lynch is kept in the walls of this middle-class home of the past, but it is taken even further. From the weird to disturbing violence. Cannibalism can simply be too much to swallow. However, with that kind of impact, the music video must be good. In contrast, the music and the images are warm and beautiful, so that will be our focus. Lasse Passage is the band behind the calming, singing voices of SAY SAY SAY. The music video is directed by Lars Åndheim (also editor) and Christoffer Lossius and produced by the production company Film Faktisk. The loud-speaking images is shot on RED by photographer and editor Espen Gulbrandsen with a lot of slow-motion. A couple of shots were further slowed in the post production process, in addition to an extensive compet to simulate super slow-motion. Mathias Theissen worked together with the directors on the important colour grading, to create the ambiguous soft, but at the same time dirty look. Mathias can tell us that this look was chosen to bring forward and complement the span that already existed between the acoustic music and the at times very violent imagery. Post produced by Henriette Carlsen and Hocus Focus.
