How Can I Make You Remember Me? - Clarke Scott

How Can I Make You Remember Me?

As a fan of the band Hammock and having recently purchased several albums I wanted to shoot something for one of their amazing soulful numbers. I chose, “How Can I Make You Remember Me?”

from the album, “Chasing After Shadows…Living with Ghosts.” See here: hammockmusic.com/​chasing

The piece came about because I was heading into town (Melbourne, Australia) and had to take public transport for a meeting. So I took my 60d and a lens—my 50mm 1,4 just in case something came up.

As I took the train to the meeting I listening to Hammock on my iPhone, and shooting whatever looked interesting as I went. There was no time to stop and think about each shot—just point and shoot. I hope you like the results?

 

I was planning to make this a narrative piece. I wanted to write something as a V.O., (voice over) and create something entirely different than what it ended up being. This would basically make the music a soundtrack to my piece. Moreover, I think Hammocks music has a narrative feel and so then it accrued to me that if I were to add dialogue this might change the intended meaning of the song. Or at least place a particular narrative into the head of the viewer/listener. So I refrain…for now.

IS LOVE A CHOICE?

  • Wow… that was very beautiful. The music and images are very soothing and do draw you in to, as you say, some sort of narrative all their own. Pure art work, my friend. Sorry I haven’t emailed sooner – will do soon, promise – and I’m glad to have come across this!

  • thanks Buddy.

  • This is gorgeous. Well done, the footage goes so perfect with the song and title. Wonderful
