"Boule De Neige" by Robin's Egg Blue

I directed a new music video. It is a collabolation work of their  song and my video.

この曲は、アツミさん(Vo.)が、フランスの白い雪のようなお菓子Boule De Neigeを食べた時においしくてうっとりした気持ちを曲にしたということだったので、キーワードは”雪”だと思って、私には、スノードームのきらきらが浮かんできて、スノードームを見てうっとりした時の気持ちからイメージをふくらませてこのビデオを作りました。この映像は、いわゆるCGというものではなくて、持っているスノードームと手作りのスノードームとスノードームの様なもの、を沢山作って、生撮影しました。なので、ノイズ感があったりするけど、それも味かなと思います。

 As I was told by Atsumi(singer) that the song is about her feeling when she ate the french sweets, "Boule De Neige", she got ecstatic with it's delicious taste...  "Boule De Neige" looks like a snowball, so  I thought the keyword on this song is "Snow", then I recalled the happy feeling when I saw glittering snowdomes.

This video is not a computer drawings, but I hand-made some snowdomes and some snowdome-like thing and shot with my video camera. so there are some noise in the video but I think I rather like it.

I thought the lyric on this song is very simple and about the precious little feeling in daily life.

As I edit the video, it reminded me of a pen I had when I was little, a pen that contains water and some glitter in it. I loved looking at it. I realized that I was unconsicously recalling and visualizing my feeling when I looked at the glittering pen, not only awakens the memory..
