I wanted to do something outside of the mold of the traditional broadcast music video. No lip-syncing. No dialogue. Just strong visuals attached to my music.
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) October 27, 2010
Seven-time Grammy® Award-winner Philip Bailey of the legendary Earth, Wind and Fire and Battalion Armour present the long form music film "Love Is Real".
Directed by Tishaun Dawson, the three-part film spans three locations chosen for their importance as romantic cities: Venice Italy, Paris France and London England. After 11 solo projects the conceptual, evocative film is a departure for Bailey, "I wanted to do something outside of the mold of the traditional broadcast music video. No lip-syncing. No dialogue. Just strong visuals attached to my music."
Everyone from long-time fans to the casual listener will be familiar with Bailey's unique voice, which spans a four-octave range. In the "Love Is Real" film he challenges what we understand love to be, "Relationships are so complicated, and anything but perfect. Just because you are having difficulty doesn't mean the love you feel in a relationship is not real."
Sherina Manning stars alongside Bailey—two silent acquaintances reflecting on the many facets of love, loss and discovery. The complete story unfolds in London where the two meet in an unsuspecting cab ride.
This unique journey is the brainchild of director Tishaun Dawson of Battalion Armour who wrote, directed, edited, scored and even wardrobe styled the film and designed the website. "Keeping a vision cohesive from beginning to end is always hard. Philip provided the perfect arrangement that gave me the creative control to touch every aspect of production."
