Hello! This video is all about time. The manipulation of it, the inability to stop it, how it feels when you’re stuck, watching everything grow and exist all around you, whether you participate or not. It’s about the waiting place. And about how life is beautiful and we are all cocooned/consumed by it, going to the same place; Nowhere | Everywhere.

When we live through this life of ours, we encounter countless landscapes and emotions. In the midst of all these encounters, certain things will forever be engraved into our memories.
From where we are now to where we will be. From this moment to eternity, the images we are seeing through time represent a sense of constant exchange of heritage and aesthetics. At the same time, they represent everyone‘s pursuit of happiness and goodness. These images are puzzle pieces of our dreams and memories. They are not only abstractions of the greatness of mountains and rivers, but also they are details such as how a warm raindrop brings the news of spring after winter. They are sounds that knock our souls. They are the tranquility we find when we see time passes. The audience solves this puzzle by watching every single frame and experiencing every second. After all, seeing this puzzle in its entirety, the audience will find a certain answer. That is, every moment in life is just the simple harmony between eternity and a day.
His works are internationally acclaimed and won the 2019, and 2020 Venice Film Festival “FILMING ITALY BEST MOVIE AWARD,” Best Music Short Film. 2019 Asian-American Film Festival Best Short Film Award, The 25th China International Advertising Festival Annual Media Enterprise Cooperation Case Award, Douban China’s Best Cultural Program of the Year Award, Asian-American Film Festival Best Short Film Award, etc.

Music & lyrics:
The music video is an Anthem for World Peace where freedom of speech is important as long as PEACE is the solution to the message.
James Eugene Eudy:
James Eudy is a performing songwriter from the rural south.
James wrote the music, lyrics, recorded and produced the song “Rise Up” in his bedroom. The song “Rise Up” was featured on a local TV Thanksgiving Day special to over 2 million viewers. Rise up also gained worldwide press from many news stations/outlets around the world reaching as far as the Middle East. Due to no incoming gigs and 85 cancellations during the Covid shut down, James decided to write “Rise Up” took what money he had and shot his first music video on the farm of Eudy using a iphone 8, mavic pro drone and Moment lens and filters.
Eudy studied on youtube for shooting videos for two days, then wrote a storyboard ,directed produced , and shot the video the next day. Rise Up was the first video that James had ever tried to shoot.
Above all, james simply wanted to send a message to all people, races, movements and political views to come together and rise up above the hate and unrest to find a peaceful solution for all. I believe that all people can rise up to be a better person or version of themselves and live together peacefully.

Skeletons is a tragic romance between a young woman and a skeleton set to an epic ballad by the band No Stories about wasted time and missed opportunities.
Occurring in an atemporal and surreal dimension that recalls the 1950s, the music video begins with the couple embarking on a fateful trip in which they never reach their destination…or do they? On the way they encounter memories of a failed relationship and learn a valuable lesson, though unfortunately, it may be too late.

Campy and celebratory in nature, “Unhinged” was made to unapologetically commit to iconic film performances. We wanted to both stylistically honor the original films we’re paying tribute to, and also bring them into the modern era.
“Unhinged” pays tribute to performances in films including Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf (1966), Opening Night (1977), Mommie Dearest (1981), Annie (1982), Frances (1982), and Misery (1990).
A producer, actor, and director, Jean-Luc McMurtry has directed music videos, commercials, and short films. He has appeared as an actor alongside Juliette Binoche on The Staircase, and has worked with dream directors like Sam Mendes and Antonio Campos, both on stage and screen.
