No Room For Promises
The Making Of
Girl meets boy. Boy cheats on girl, girls get together and teach the boy a lesson…
That’s what we got when we came up for the script for my ‘No Room For Promises’ music video.
I love how this video turned out because we filmed the whole thing on an ipad! Yep, no high tech equipment used, just an ipad, natural daylight and some fancy editing using the free Microsoft Windows Video Editor (now unavailable on Windows 10)!!
Starring: Me with my little sister Cathy Prastides and her friend Dale Barnard.
It all started with some fancy faux flowers
And a quaint high-tea first date
“I like your braces. They match my cardigan.”
We shot this scene at my sister’s house in her front garden. The props were provided with thanks to ‘Supplier-a-la-Mumsy’. We also made Dale wear Cathy’s hat.
My sister Cathy played the ‘other woman’ in the video. Cathy is a instructor in Krav Maga and helped us (cough: forced us to include in the script: cough) organise the fight scene.
“Wanna try me Dale?”
Cathy took her Charlie’s Angels kick-arse pose seriously….
“Can you tell we’re sisters?”
We had a few last minute decisions to make…
“Let’s tie Dale to the soccer post“
“Who said jazz was serious?”
And found the perfect spot for Dale…
