Audio/ Visual ideas & goings on.
So much worthy anticipation over the latest visual masterpiece from the Haus of Gaga. Of course after the lack lustre affair which was “Edge of Glory” and the most random explosion of design which was “You & I”, the expectation was that the video for “Marry The Night” had to be brilliant. I for one am still lost in the excitement of it, not so much that it is a brilliant music video for that much I’m not even sure it is. In the way I think it was intended, Marry The Night is a short film displaying the circle of success and self-destruction for a hard-working popstar. What makes it stand out ‘narratively’ is the early commentary by Gaga which at a moment sounds like a director’s commentary on a Dvd extra, explaining the reasons for the look and feel of the video. All the while one has the sense of sentiment and the actual tone of the narrative tells us more than the words themselves. Perhaps this is the most true and sincere look into the mind and heart of Gaga. For once the story may be true and believable even if set amongst a backdrop of somewhat curious, or fanciful designs. In response to FAQ’s regarding the video Gaga has been quoted as saying
Overall the look is just what I’d hoped for with the use of many typical, but not so cliché production design, such as the green in the hospital, the pale colours of the dance studio and the vibrancy of a pop video when dancing in the street. Watch the video after this large collection of stills.
