Well....I'm not performing, but I did direct, shoot & edit. I hope you enjoy "Go Back".

Caution: That whistle intro stays with you for days!

What a beautiful storyline and tune.... I had tears in my eyes when she finally went home. Beautiful....
Nice work here Doug. I love the see through images of the younger girl as well. Super neat to watch that effect always. Really nice job all around.

Very nice Doug, a video with a good song that tells a story. Like watching MTV back in the 80s [Smile]

Thank you all for the kind comments. This was a different experience than the first music video that I was the DP on (in 16mm) with The Ramones!

Good job, Doug!

You have the resources to use either a steady cam or something along thoselines. When I shoot my music videos, I have to either do that "jerky camera" style (which i personally hate), or just have the camera stationary on a tripod, which does limit the range of possibilities somewhat.

Great Direct & Edit Doug! Your use of double exposure was excellent

Lovely work, Doug; beautiful imagery, and I love the use of superimpositions as a narrative tool. Engler's song is a nice catchy tune that sticks with you.

(I'd love to see the Ramones music video!)
