Bring the Lights Back - Wax Myrtle's Special Structure

The music video for 'Bring the Lights Back' by Wax Myrtle's Special Structure is finally ready! Before delving into the details, I'd like to thank the band for letting me create this video. It has been an absolutely wonderful experience from start to finish, and I thoroughly enjoyed every second of it.

The idea for this music video started for me several years ago as part of a university project. Unfortunately, I was unable to make it at the time but since then, the initial idea evolved into what you now see before you, having had to alter the locations used along with how the journey was to play out. Although I was unable to make it previously, I am grateful to have been postponed in production as the final product turned out better than I could have ever imagined.

Filming began in December 2017, originally everything was to be filmed over the course of one weekend. As was bound to happen, our plans were foiled. One of the band members came down with a cold the week of filming. Thankfully, this actually worked out in our favour!
If our original plan had worked out, none of that stunning snow would have been featured anywhere within the film as the interior shots would have been recorded that day, having shot the exterior the day prior. The filming of the band was postponed until early January. Luckily for us, it all went very smoothly and we got everything that was needed in one day.

I would like to say a huge thank you to everyone involved in this project. Your hard work and support means so much to me, and I could not have pulled this off without you.
