That was just skillful editing. 23 seconds of intense emotions upon the brink. Just breath taking!
I loved, JUST LOVED, the manner you impeccably edited that opening. Your forte of selecting the most appropriate song, here those piano strings, playing that melody that we do not know and yet it its soothing sound makes it sound so familiar, close and beloved, like the story that is about to unfold.
I loved, JUST LOVED, the intermittent use of that rain scene so that it binds the whole together, in an inspired way so that it is difficult to discern that this was just once a promo!
The symmetry of their actions alone, whilst the contrast of it in public beautifully brought out by your editing!
I loved how you begin the lyrics, do pal @0:09 in your vm the moment you actually bring them eye to eye as well.
Then those flashes of his need to let the rain extinguish that fire, that warmth he felt in his heart at the sight of her.
Then that layering of that moment @0:17 upon that find line between private and public he watches her through
his reflection in that glass, as he opens the blinds, here a metaphor for his eyes,
so that whilst his own heart and feelings take hidden steps towards her, he, his reflection
in truth represents that he is his own wall between him and her.
We start with him and her and that moment that binds their hearts
together, as encapsulated in that picture that she holds onto, that she
tries to repair,
just like their bond, whereas the starkness of his rejection of any such amends at the end.
Aahana, I was in awe at what you did with so little, that detailing and depth and I wonder at those vms that you will weave together in the future.
Please add me to your Khushi Arnav, VM pm list.
With much love, Sabah
