Grammy Awards 2016 Live Stream

Grammy Awards 2016 Live Stream

Grammy Awards 2016 Live Stream is awesome. Music videos are under-appreciated as an art form, but there’s a reason why scores of music video directors become feature film directors later in their careers, and why established film directors go the other way.

It’s because music (like any art worth its salt) can take on multiple meanings for different people, and when a filmmaker sets their sight on creating visuals to accompany a song that resonates with them, they can more often than not come up with some really absorbing ideas.

Music videos that tell a story, vague or otherwise, can be hugely rewarding whether you’re a fan of the song or no. And arguably the best music videos are the ones you can enjoy with the volume turned all the way down to zero.

It’s not a big leap to take an aesthetic, a storyline or a motif from a music video and ask, why hasn’t this been turned into a film? You could watch any number of music videos and draw a simple strand of storyline or character and run with it. Here are my picks for ten that should or could be given the feature film treatment, and who’d be best placed to bring the vision to the big screen.

The video can only be described as a journey. A woman swims into the open mouth of a whale and her trip only gets more batsh*t crazy from there.

Some other crazy stuff happens and eventually it emerges that the girl is on the dance floor of some club, no doubt filled to the high heavens with all sorts of intoxicants. But there are other inferences to be taken considering the ambiguity of the material.

The video could definitely be adapted to feature-length; all it takes is a filmmaker with the right vision and voila. Because of said ambiguity filmmakers can take from it what they wish. For the plot of a film, it could definitely have an adult Alice in Wonderland vibe; the girl who undertakes ‘the test’ can go on this crazy, chaotic journey, resulting in some ultimate payoff.

Imagine the girl beginning the film in free-fall, landing in the ocean, not knowing where the hell she is or having any memory at all. She undergoes various other trials and tribulations, Labyrinth-style.

When she finishes her ‘test’, she awakens back in the real world with all the memories of why she had undergone such a trial in the first place – taking a kind of sci-fi slant that the whole thing was perhaps a drug-induced dream, serving as a rite of passage for some all-important third-act reasoning.
