The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty

"Beautiful things don't ask for attention."

Type: Music Video
Release: February 2016

This is certainly one of my favorite movies. It is unusual, tender, adventurous and deeply emotional. Plus, the soundtrack is outstanding, all the reasons were here to work on this film.

In this 3-minute long music video, I tried to capture the “quintessence” – as they call it in the movie – of the story, without giving away too much. The Time & Life building sequence was the starting point, as we discover that Walter is a dreamy guy driven by his love for Cheryl. I intentionally mix the dream shots and the non-dream shots throughout the video in order to tease those who haven’t seen the movie yet.

It is this love for this woman that will lead him to undertake a fantastic adventure, and find the true purpose of Life. The video ends with a quote from Sean Penn’s character that particularly resonates with me, and also perfectly pictures the film.
