Anyone who's been in love can relate with the words, "I wanna run away with you." It's one of the most grand, romantic statements you can make. It's also one of the most cliché (for good reason, of course).
For this music video that I wrote and directed for Brick + Mortar's song "Train," I wanted to play off of the trope of the star-crossed lovers by reenacting some of the most iconic scenes from famous love films to create an epic ode to amour.
It all required an insane amount of work, from costumes to hair and makeup, and studying all of the scenes so we could get every emotion, angle, and shadow exactly right, but it was so worth it.
