Richard Jahn – Paint It (Video)
Richard Jahn‘s new music video for Paint It, is oddly satisfying. The visuals which are minimalistic match the tone of the new single which relies on a lyric-less approach from earlier work. Read more about the new video here:
Richard eventually gained permission to shoot the video (directed by Milo Hutchings and James Rushton) at Tooting’s extravagant bingo hall after 3 months of negotiations. With only an allotted 3 hours to film very early on a Sunday morning, he called on none-other than his 90-year-old grandmother, an actress/dancer in the 1930s, for a starring role. The video is greatly focused on binary opposites, juxtaposing the lyrics, ‘Paint it in black’ with garishly lit slot machines, youth with old age and decadence with minimalism.
3 months of negotiations is what it took and less than 3 minutes for you to watch. Check out Paint It from Richard Jahn and drop your thoughts in the comments below.
