The company was very clear about how it wanted the piece delivered – and they were absolutely right with the direction. The video needed a ”quiet pace”, a ”conversational” style and a ”little wave in intonation”. Just enough to keep it natural and to follow the rhythm of the shots.
My performance had to be extension of the man on the screen, who thumbs through his way his vinyl collection and then sits back, closing his eyes, to enjoy his favourite music.
Vogel’s also asked for a ”relaxed, Sunday afternoon feeling” with a slight ”whispering” tone. It was a great experience to get into the mental mindset of relaxing without a care in the world – and indulging in the enjoyment of beautiful, blissful music.
