You're very prolific as of late, ATARI. Good stuff. My favourite bits were the board being set on fire and the stopmotion chalk / pen stuff.

Awesome I always wanted to try making a music vid. Anyway overall it's great and good job on finishing this, now if you don't mind some heavily opinionated opinion:
 I wished the scenes where the girl crashes the board has more drama, the views could have used more close ups and movement instead of steady cams. Especially since the music was starting to build up on that part.
Also, the wall on the right side of the screen that's included in the scenes of that man was a bit distracting. it constantly reminds me that what i'm watching is from a camera situated right outside the door.
The last parts were the best parts imo with all those stopmotion, that might have taken a lot of time.
All in all great music and fitting video with lots of effort put into it. Congrats.

PS
I chuckled at the 'sun ray' effect.

the sun ray thing was not intended, it just kind of happened.

the room shots were really hard to get because the house I live in is far from ideal for filming, and I didn't have a wide angle lens or anything like that, so I had to take what I could get.

I want to do something like this but realistically the only thing I would have to shoot it on is my iPhone. I have a 4S though so maybe it would be worthwhile.

Did you storyboard this or did you go with the flow and then just spend a few days slicing and dicing material?

All in all I thought it was really good. I'm not sure if I'm glad you didn't stylise the fuck out of it or not. There's part of you that dies every time you see something that's instagramesque but in the context of a music video it might be appropriate for more subtle lighting effects.

I don't storyboard, or plan out things usually, but I did have a lot more pre-production work on this video than I normally do with things.  Just about every song that I've written is about 20% pre-planned and then just improvised for the rest of it.
