The idea for this project came to me through several different tracks. First of all, if you know me, you know I love music. Second, I am a very, very visual learner—that just means that themes and stories make more sense to me if I can see them happening. That’s why I love movies so much. I discovered last semester that I absolutely loved scriptwriting. Writing has always been a big part of my life—from research papers to short narratives. And now, my visual learning style and my love for writing have found their happy medium.
The story I’ve depicted isn’t one that I know firsthand, but the meaning behind what you’re going to see means everything to me. We live in a broken world where broken people work to live broken lives. Something that I definitely struggle with is trying to fix things. By any means, I want harmony. Whether that’s between you and me, you and her, her and him… harmony is desired. I bet we can all agree that we want that, but in my case (and I’m sure in some of yours, too) that need is very persistent. At the end of these struggles, I always find myself coming back to God and wondering why I couldn’t fix it. I know now, through everything that I’ve been through in my life, two things: one, I don’t have to fix it and two, I can’t fix it. Besides, I need my own fixing, so I’ll leave that up to God, and not give up on anyone else.
The actual music video runs for about 4-5 minutes and the last half is bloopers.
