They Can't See Michael Tyler

"They Can't See" is based on the idea that at the different stages of love and a relationship you grow together and eventually move beyond just the attraction to physical attributes. In our video we will showcase three couples at the newlywed, middle aged, and elderly stages of marriage. We will capture b-roll of the couples in their own homes along with different trinkets, photos, and elements in their homes that tell their story of being together. Each couple will tell their story in their own words in a documentary style interview; paired with a dramatic singer/songwriter performance of MT. We are creating two videos with this job. The first is the standard music video with performance and b-roll (3 + minutes). The second is an extended version with the interview cut in (5-6 minutes). The song link is below.

Performance Location #1 // The Cordelle Main Floor

This location will serve as our hero performance scene. Cool teal hue lighting modeled through the windows. Warm directional light upfront on MT. He will have his acoustic guitar.

Performance Location #2 // Upstairs at the Cordelle

We will remove the mirror and use only the wall. Waist up NO guitar. Directional light from the window (camera left). The window is about 15 feet up from the ground level. I'd like this to have more directional from the window with the same color balance as in the main performance.

Location # 3: 1st couple interview + b-roll

This location is upstairs at the Cordelle and serve as our fake living room for the first couple.

Location #4: Couple number 2
