The concept behind the lyric video for Open Air was fairly simple. My kids are avid painters and artists, and we seem to acquire an unending pile of paper in various drawers, tabletops and corners of our home. The best use for them? Scanned and inverted, and hey presto! The backdrop to the lyrics!
I wanted a neon, dark background. On the left you’ll see the original paintings from my kids, and then on the right the inverted version which gave the neon feel and formed the basic images we used for the video.
Not bad, huh?
