All it takes is some creativity

Late at night, when I am working with my Powerbook on my lap, I leave the TV on the background sometimes at the Music-in-HD channel. I usually watch this so I can get inspiration for music video clips that I could potentially shoot. At least once a night, they play videos from Fiona Apple. I don’t particularly like Apple’s music, as I personally find it weird — although I prefer it over Björk’s.

Anyways, one of her videos, “Not About Love“, is an interesting one to me (YouTube link). It’s a cheapo video clip, co-starring Apple and comedian of Greek descent Zach Galifianakis. It apparently was shot on video, and so quality suffers and I would not be surprised to hear that it was actually shot with a consumer widescreen DV camera (yes, the ones that cost $250). However the director does a good job in creating a funny, interesting atmosphere.

This is what I am after. Given the fact that I actually own a much better camera than he did when he shot the video, all it takes is some imagination on my part and some basic editing skills. Am I ready for it? I think so. Especially if JBQ helps me out during shooting with his photography skills, I think I can ultimately create something worth watching.
