Film: We're Going Sailing
Music Video
Runtime: 03:00 min
Description: This video has been described as "a joy to watch" by Hot Press music magazine. The animated music video for 'We're Going Sailing' draws on the romantic nature of the song for it's inspiration. Not just the boy-girl romance aspect but also the atmospherical and mythical romance that runs through the song. The simplicity and childlike style of the animation emphasises the naivete and innocence that is inherent in the song itself. The Characters in the song are not adults neither are they children. The characters are mythical characters, only a few inches in height, and are sailing on a leaf. Their 'ocean' is really a stream, a reflection on the song's theme, which is a romanticism of the adventure a couple goes through and the magical quality that love gives to ordinary life.

This was a song inspired by the self-named story by Stephen King. I used to sing it with my band called "Amontillado" Several years before. Now as I discovered computer and some sophisticated technologies it has to offer (like Flash), I decided it was time to make a clip for that old scary song. So here it is. "...for I passed many shadows but in the fog I saw no faces."
