So Lonely - The Video

I'm so fucking excited! In late December I wrote a post about the making of Chris Sorbello's "So Lonely" video clip and after 3 long months, the damn thing has finally hit the net. At first I was almost too scared to watch it. I love Chris and really didn't want to test the boundaries of our friendship by trashing her video (if it wasn't any good). It's a huge relief to report that "So Lonely" is utterly fabulous. Which is a little surprising given the simple premise. Basically, Christina performs a series of robotic dance moves in increasingly quirky costumes in an abandoned warehouse with only a strobelight and smoke machine to keep her company. Not exactly "Telephone" then but director James Littlemore does a great job of capturing the song's subtlety and sparse beauty. I love the smoke effects - shadow puppets are so 2010! - and the crazy outfits. Particularly the hot disco tranny look at 1:15 minutes and the amazing knit dress at the end. Chris does a brilliant job with the choreography and holds everything together with her intensity and unique style. It's kind of surreal to see the finished product given that I spent most of the shoot chatting to the diva about September (don't ask) and stealing food from the caterers. Check out the video below and let me know what you think!

This is very discolicious. Her eyelashes were fierce!! It is a great song and video. You are so amazing sharing this fierce new music with us. You both look like u had a great time during the making of this.

Stunning! The use of the smoke machine to make dancing sihlouetes is brilliant - watch every other diva in 2010 stealing this idea.

The "disco tranny" look is very like busty beauty Ultra Nate for the Silk, Grime & Thunder singles

I really like this song.

The video was obviously done on a budget, but it fits the song nicely.

It's actually a really good video, especially considering the budget.

I might post it on the prophet later.

Mike said...

Yeah, she's Australian.

I love the smoke dancing too! It's fabulous.

And you're right about the Ultra Nate comparisons, when I come to think of it.

Amazing!

John said...

Love this...I second that Kylie vibe, mixed with Michael Jackson's "Rock With You" video. Glad to see it's doing well so far. Any movement on the pop side of the equation?
