Seriously, that brought it to the next level on every level. Janice is a natural at everything; that's obvious. I don't think you can teach someone how to sing like OR connect with a camera like that. Sure you can mimic it, like butter and "I Can't Believe It's Not Butter" (I can believe it's not) but there's always something missing that makes it "real," authentic, and genuine. Most people would categorize those as synonyms, but I do feel they have very subtle differences to me. She is every subtle variation.

Video-I loved the choice of going to the "black and white" and all the shades that come with that side of things. At times, I feel the use of color may dictate an emotion as much as anything else; without realizing it, possibly into an emotion you're not intending. Your choice added TO the emotion and emphasized the feel without dictating it. I believe you know that many time I prefer to listen to a song without seeing the video at the same time. I made an exception here knowing your goal. Amazing! To me, this added to the song in every way. It was subtle, but never boring. The angles, the use of motion, composition, all masterfully done. I don't know how much you had to pay the wind, but you even had that workin' for ya! Now, I'm not going claim to be even remotely educated in these areas; but I do have to frame drone shots often enough. All I can say is, I felt major connection to the song BECAUSE of the video!

"Nothing lasts forever" in the cemetery, then even more so by what was a VERY large tree that is no longer there strikes every aspect of that moment. Speechless! SO, powerful. I don't believe that is an image I will ever forget. I sincerely believe made into a print, that image would strike a chord with so many people. Truly amazing!

How crazy is it that we can do this with a little device we carry around with us...and this isn't even it's primary use? These are the parts of technology I love. Especially in the hands of people who strive to use it to connect people.

Well, I'll end it there for now. My daughter was just telling me if I put a period between each letter I can type pretty much anything and the bots won't censor it. So here we go with my earlier comments using this technique...
In my opinion, it was R.E.A.L.L.Y awesome!
That video R.E.A.L.L.Y blew me away!
What do you know...it worked! grin



"That being said, did the video meet those same standards? In my opinion, it was @%&^'$ awesome! Hmmm...I got censored. Let me try this another way. That video @%&^'$ blew me away! Ok. Moving on I guess. cry "
smile smile smile

"Sure you can mimic it, like butter and "I Can't Believe It's Not Butter" (I can believe it's not) but there's always something missing that makes it "real," authentic, and genuine."

I (Bud) have always referred to her singing as coming from the method actor mode. It is very thoughtful of you to mention that.

"All I can say is, I felt major connection to the song BECAUSE of the video!"

Wow, thank you. We were assuredly winging it. Yeah it was a hassle hauling those fans and batteries to the scenes! Actually we simply got lucky as for several shots it was windy so we tried to take advantage of it.

"'Nothing lasts forever' in the cemetery, then even more so by what was a VERY large tree that is no longer there strikes every aspect of that moment. Speechless! SO, powerful. I don't believe that is an image I will ever forget. I sincerely believe made into a print, that image would strike a chord with so many people. Truly amazing!"

We counted around 150 rings on the tree. The sun was very bright but what the heck...thanks!

Thank you for the vote of confidence. We are particularly happy that the video engaged you. We feel so many vids are, to us, choppy and hard to follow thematically. So albeit "iPhone primitive" in production you made us feel it carried the lyric home.

Where would I start? Extraordinary production values; not a single weakness. And that video work! So well displayed on Vimeo! My favorite scene was Janice on the stump next to the cemetary. B&W a great move. Congratulations.

Bravo!

Great collaboration.


Thank you!! We much appreciate all you said and especially for mentioning the tree stump.

I compliment Bud's iphone and video editing skills, too. The final presentation is a one-hundred-percent engaging production.

Super super superb entertainment.

All the best,

Thank you Noel. We are happy you liked it! It has been quite the learning experience of late diving into this type of videos. But fun albeit at times a bit tedious. We appreciate your support.

We're truly spoilt to have such musicians on here.

Superb video, too. Please, never ever stop creating - it's miraculous, what you do. Thanks.


Your thoughts on our video efforts make us feel that perhaps the “old dog new tricks” notion is working! Thank you very much for the time to listen and offer those very supportive remarks.

Hi Janice and Bud,

This must be one of the most PROFESSIONAL productions you guys ever did.
As always Janice's vocals are outstanding, but we were also struck by the video. Peter's contribution adds another dimension to the song.

I can imagine you threw away those flowers, Janice. It's a bad thing what happened to you.
Leave that 'hometown' is my advise. The way you told this sad story is brilliant. And the band that helped you with it is also very, very good. Of course you are now used to get this kind of compliments, but these come from across the ocean and very sincere.

I saw some post to the latest song of Floyd. They said his song should be in a jukebox in some nice pub. Well, yours too!
If that's going to happen, I'll come to visit it!

Hans


Thank you Hans. We are excited you liked the imagery for the story. And thanks for noticing the flower toss. BTW, we often feel we should’ve moved to CO when we retired smile We MUCH appreciate your comments!

Dear Ms. Janice, Bud, & Peter...

I watched the video three times while listening closely to the lyrics, so I could understand what the song is about. With that said, I think 'Hometown Refugee' is one of the most tragic songs I've ever heard on the User's Forum. That's not a critique, only a testimonial to the lyricist's success in communicating the mood and tone he/she seemed to want to express to the listeners.

The black & white cinematography was so sharply black & white that the shades of gray in the images almost came across as colors! An intriguing effect, even if you didn't intend to achieve it.

Ms. Janice, your solitary physical presence, wandering aimlessly through the uninhabited landscape with your downcast eyes and your troubled facial expression, added dramatic weight to your heart-broken delivery of the seemingly hopeless-sounding lyrics.

Peter, at this stage of my familiarity with your performing talents, I experienced a sudden insight that you, sir, are the true instrument! The guitars you play 'know' you and your touch so well that they can't help but translate what you're feeling in the most direct and emotionally expressive way possible.

Bud, the whole package sounds and looks like the work of a person who knows what he wants, and gets it right. As a team of artists, all of you combine and share your gifts so completely that it makes each one of your productions as distinctive and accomplished as each of you obviously are.

If I was wearing a hat, I'd tip it toward you, but I'm not, so I'll just pretend I am and tip it, anyway laugh.

P.S. I thought the percussion track (bongos, perhaps?) was a good addition to the instrument set. It simply added another musical color to the production, and perhaps brightened the feel of it, too, like a heart that still beats with life even though the owner of it wishes that it didn't.

Thanks, glad you liked it! We’re good with the percussion. We find the juxtaposing of something slightly upbeat with a down tune to often work. Or maybe it’s because we’ve listened to it this way for three years smile

We appreciate your time to comment and watch. And your opinion does count.

Peter guitar work is wonderful.

A truly outstanding video. The best ever presented here. A great cohesive look to the entire video.
Camera work is excellent. Lip-syncing, too!!
Amazing that you were able to find a building with Peter's name AND "guitar". wink

LOVE how you got that bird to fly away in the last shot at JUST the right time! How'd you DO that??? smile

Stunning work all around. Looking forward to where you go from here...

Wow! Thank you for the support. Your mentioning of the mix was special … heck everything you said was. We nearly ran off the road when we saw that bldg with Peter’s name on it. We paid a kid to hide behind a tree and release the bird when I raised my arm smile

Your comments me a LOT to us.

Thank you for all. Images that mesh with the song was our hoped for goal. We much appreciate you mentioning that!

Excellent work!


Thank you David! Yep Peter’s performance was perfect for the lyric and melody.

Great mix as usual, Bud!

Really enjoyed the video, love the stills you chose, and seeing Janice do her thing. Nice to see the shot of Peter also.

I gave it a "like" over there for what that's worth wink


We always look forward to and appreciate your comments. We’re happy the vid worked for you. Thanks for commenting and noting the fb post!

It has become commonplace to expect something professional sounding from you folks (kind of like a Muscle Shoals thing!) I mean, what a soulful and forlorn render. But to have a video too? As someone who often feels as if he has been banned from his hometown, this song hit kind of a tender spot. As you were singing I could see some of the same images in my head that you had in the video. Old derelict buildings that were once bustling hubs of activity and places that held such fond memories now run down and dilapidated. Or even worse, demolished and turned into a parking lot.
Thanks for posting, I enjoyed the listen...and watch.


Thank you so much! We had the same feelings about our town working on the video. We much appreciate you mentioning the imagery. Thanks for all!

Thank you Ed. We often walk around that historic cemetery and that huge stump seemed to say a lot. We really appreciate you mentioning the production as we are learning as we go along.

Glad you liked it!

Wow! You just made all the effort worthwhile.

We are very pleased you felt the tragic aspects of the song...rarely can one go back and that feeling is what we had hoped to achieve.

Thanks you for mentioning the B&W choice. We both felt that it added to the mood but were not sure others would agree.

Janice very much appreciates your description of her presence. She tries to be a bit of a method actor when she sings and now Bud is giving her a chance to express it visually smile Being a bit shy (dating back to our stage days) we were both pleased at how this seemed to come naturally. And your remarks are most supportive.

Thanks also for your thoughts on the production. We were and are learning as we go. The percussion is a toms addition that do sound like bongos and resemble what Janice would have played on her cajon. The brightening of the feel seems perhaps counterintuitive but we thought it worked and are MOST pleased that you liked it.

We so much appreciate your review!

J&B and Peter,

What a great video and audio track! Janice, you did an excellent job syncing that vocal and your "acting" with the different scenes totally works. As good as any Nashville artist doing their own videos! Peter's guitar sounds exceptionally good here! Bud your techniques with the production of both audio/video/photography cannot be praised enough! Great work! Thanks, Torrey

Torrey, Janice much appreciates your comments on the syncing and role playing. She was making it up mostly on site. Comparing it to pro videos is high praise indeed. I feel like we have a lot to learn but it has been a fun journey so far. Bud thanks you big time for the production comments.

Your support means a lot.
