Creating and shooting a short film/music video for our first single "The Road," using actors and musical performance simultaneously.

OAU - Music Video for "The Road."

The Road:

"I think over and over and over... my small adventures, this life of ease.

Second star to the right, and straight on, straight on to glory.
This I swear: We will live forever.

I fight for the men and women who's poetry is not yet written.
And I sing loud so all will listen, 'Love! Love is our absolution!'

I think on and on and on... the unknown future, my uncertainties.
Show me the road to heaven or to hell before complacency.
This I swear: We will live forever!

I fight for the men and women who's poetry is not yet written.
And I sing loud so all will listen, 'Love! Love is our retribution!'

I sing loud… I sing loud…

I fight for the men and women who's poetry is not yet written.
And I sing loud so all will listen, 'Love! Love is the revolution!'"

The story of this music video is young love. We have auditioned and selected two child actors, one boy and one girl. With the help of their parents and a director, they will be portraying a young summer crush. Playing in a wheat field and climbing a tree together, we hope to strike a memorable chord in our audience - Something that everyone can remember with a joyful nostalgia. The video will cut from the storyline to each band member playing the song individually in a dream-like state, based in the same location as the children were playing, in what seems to be a memory. The end of the video will be the reveal that our lead singer is actually the grown version of the male child actor. 

This video will be achieved with such a low budget with the help of students from The Art Institute of Portland's film department. We will have a student film crew, makeup, hair and wardrobe crew, as well as a post production crew. The Art Institute will be providing most of the high cost equipment, but a few items will need to be purchased or rented. OAU wants to be able to pay at least $100 to each person involved in the crew, due to the fact that they are donating anywhere from 12-48 hours of their time. Any funds over the $1,500 goal will be used for the finishing of our CD, set to be released in the Spring of 2013.
