Tackk will be shutting down on 9.30.17 - Export your Tackks


So for this term we've to make a musicvid in the style of a photographer we've choosen by ourselves. I'm in love with this project cause recently I prefer filming than taking photos (yeah I'm in the photography class and I'm cool with it) and music is a fundamental need to me. First I've thought of using a song of Sigur Rós but somehow it doesn't inspire me for this project. One day on my way to school I listened to the song 'Me and the Devil' of Soap&Skin and suddenly an idea banged into my mind. My photographer is Todd Hido. http://www.toddhido.com

The lyrics are (for the first 1.5 minutes - our vid shouldn't be longer):

Early this morning
When you knocked upon my door
Early this morning
When you knocked upon my door
And I said hello Satan
I believe it's time to go

Me and the Devil
Was walkin' side by side
Me and the Devil
Was walking side by side

And that's what I'm going to do:

In the first shot you'll see a misty, autumnal landscape, kind of forest glade with a door in the middle. Suddenly a poodle appears, runs through the scene and scratches at the door. Haha yes a poodle! Maybe you know Goethe's Faust? ;) If anybody, my dearest readers has a poodle at home please call me. I don't know where to get one yet..

Next scene there is a blindfolded girl lying on the ground. It'll be a close shot so you just see her face. Then a person with a devil mask and horns appears from above and gives the girl a kiss on the cheek.

Third scene: The devil pulls the girl upward and they walk side by side towards the camera. During the walk the devil disappears and reappears and disappears and… So you get the impression that the devil isn't existent. He's just the imagination of the girl.

I'd like to do the vid in black and white and give it the look of an old analog film.

I'm off to take some test-photos of the location. Stay tuned and keep your nose clean ;)

Back with my location-photo..
