The music video we’ve been working on for ‘Where There is Love’ from my CD Birds of Love is finally ready!
We started working on the video last summer in Vancouver, Canada and the shoot took place on a beautiful beach. Even though we only had a couple of hours and a limited budget for the video, we made the most of the time we had.
I had asked friends to contribute photos for the video and I’m delighted that we managed to add several of them (thanks to all of you who responded and sent photos – I wish we could have used them all)! For a long time, Jarome has tried to convince me to be in one of my videos as he felt it makes it more personal. I resisted for quite some time but finally gave in (thanks for your patience Jarome)! I have to say that I didn’t expect it be so much fun and walking on the beach was so inspiring as I love the ocean!
In the video we wanted to represent different forms of love. We tried to capture younger couples and older ones as well as love for God’s creation. The video was inspired by the first part of the song where the quote is attributed to Abdu’l-Baha ‘Where there is love, nothing is too much trouble and there is always time’ and develops from there. The quotations were all so beautiful that we wanted to capture them in the beauty of the images that we found.
If you would like to read more about the song, I’ve talked about it in more detail here. Thanks again to those of you who gave us permission to use your beautiful photos and thanks to those of you who participated in the video and thanks also to Jarome for all the time and creativity he put into making yet another lovely video! I really enjoyed being a part of it! I hope you like it and will share it with your friends 😀
