If I walk away

I always wanted to do a music video for my brother. Unfortunately, no one wanted to pay for it. So I grabbed a 5D, joined his tour for a few weeks, and thanks entirely to his selfless willingness to do it, I made the video anyway. I had this idea of lulling people into a real/documentary look and then breaking that illusion by having him sing in this supposedly candid footage, blurring the line between real and fake, personal and public. I'd never really seen that done before. As lo-fi as it is, I'm really proud to tell this story for my brother; it's a message that resonates with me too. Ultimately, Warner Bros. Records accepted it as an official video and released it. It currently has over three million views on Youtube
