The video would INTERCUT between a PERFORMANCE of Samantha Lloyd and the NARRATIVE of herself, with this mysterious vacant man that’s come into her life.
The performance itself will be shot in SLOW-MOTION and REVERSE, immediately grabbing the AUDIENCE with the visual of water travelling upwards. This would require Samantha to learn certain parts of the song in reverse, but if used specifically this should be more than manageable. Samantha would have a VACANT, sad look on her face throughout.
The narrative itself will show Samantha as she discovers this VACANT, sad, unresponsive man, in a particular DENIM JACKET, floating in the river, and attempts to care for him. Samantha finds herself falling for the man, as he gets better, however, once fully capable of looking after himself, he leaves, leaving only his DENIM JACKET. Here, we reveal in the performance that Samantha has been wearing his DENIM JACKET the whole time - she is now carrying the weight he brought when he arrived. She wanders into the water, in hopes of finding someone to care for her as she did him.
Please note this is a student project and not a commercial production.

The Vacant Man
This role requires the ability to say a lot with very little. Subtle eye movements, specific body language, etc. The Vacant Man represent someone who isn't prepared for human connection. He is re-learning what it feels like to feel loved. However, when he finally receives his long awaited affection, he can't take it and returns to the water he came from. This water represents his feeling of drifting, waiting, and hoping to eventually fall into the life of someone he deserves.
Male, aged 20 to 40
