I must be missing something here. I don’t really understand the story. Don’t really dig the music either. I think with another choice of tune, this can really raise the hair on the back of your neck. But alas, this track didn’t do much for me. Great visuals, seamless sequences, beautiful looking stuff, though.


Agree with you on the music choice. This is the kind of music you either love or hate and I, personally, hate it so I had to turn off the sound to watch it.

As far as the story goes..I don’t know…how big business is controlling the war?


This is the most cheese-dick thing I’ve ever seen. Absolute garbage.


That’s what your boyfriend said.


a complete waste of time.

Big City

Whoa, whoa, whoa!
What’s with all the hate?

When I saw this on the big screen @ inspire, I’m pretty sure I got chills, despite the song.
And you know the angst-filled kids who like AVA are going to eat this up.

Loaded imagery? Sure.
Forced narrative? Maybe.
But “cheese-dick…garbage” or “complete waste of time”?
Effin poppycock.

I think Shilo did a damn good job, all things considered.

That having been said, I am bothered by the way the guys don’t hang from the umbrellas, and instead just kind of held them as the fell. Physically unpossible.

Also, thanks for the interview.

I hate that guy’s voice.


It is nicely done, but the whole concept behind in is very weak.
Not sure the reason for doing this piece. Are they trying to show their production skills? I think they already demonstrate they are capable. So this project doesn’t make sense to me.
