A beautiful and powerful piece that explores how one woman's life is shaped by a single virtue: respect.
The video is a series of touching and honest vignettes about a woman's journey from her birth to the day she herself becomes a mother - intercut with an intense an iconic performance by Faith and Tim.
These vignettes all deal with how she is communicated to - not necessarily on a verbal level, but on an emotional level by the men in her life; her father, guys at school, and eventually her husband.
Never heavy handed, and always coming from the most thought provoking place, the video portrays a series of memories that shapes the woman she becomes.
Tim and Faith's performance takes place on a large, darkened sound stage under the glow of warm theatrical lighting. The golden hues are soft but defining. The feel is moody but glamorous. As the song develops, the lighting intensifies.
The vignettes take place in the same space -- though in each scene the camera is close to the subject and only rarely are the surroundings shown. Visually abstract spaces, brought to life with the use of effects and minimal props will be employed to create a stylized and dreamlike "set" around the actors.
The performance is exactly what you'd expect from Tim and Faith - passionate, powerful and heartfelt. They will look their best. Lighting perfect. Wardrobe elegant. Styling impeccable.
The camerawork captures the most raw and honest moments in time with the music, moving from energetic handheld, to glassy smooth sweeping shots.
We introduce Faith and Tim separately in their respective verses. They walk toward each other during the third verse and come together for a monumental ending as the camera encircles them during the climax. Their performance is the foundation of the video and the emotional core that binds the piece together. Their interaction is natural. Honest. Sexy.
The story presents slivers of time.
