Take me Home - The musicvideo!

Width five days of planning, 19 hours of recording and a month of editing and effects overlay, Take me Home is our biggest project ever! This is a music video made width music from our local singer and DJ Roy Digre. This is ment to be funny, so don't take it to serious:p

Width 14 GB of traffic the first 7 days, the movie has become a huge success in Mo i Rana and Mosjøen - to neighboortowns in our local area (Norway). We're tense to know if you share the same sense of humour as they are=)

- Grab the microphone and sing along: Take me me hoooooome!

Very good. I give it 4 stars. I found it entertaining, funny, refreshing, and somewhat original for most postings here. It's one thing to act and look stupid, but yet another to do it in an organized and humorous way. You pulled it off. The audio in the very beginning was a bit sketchy as you could hear the rustling of the microphone. I particularly liked the nice shot over the lake/fjord that you did. I'm looking forward to more videos from you guys.

Everything about this movie was just right.

The style of dancing, the humor, everything.

Seriously, this is possibly the best movie since Chav!.

I was very sceptic about this, Waser usually have very bad taste.
But this was brilliant!

Hey, this was really good!

I especially liked the clever use of the dog and the Coca-cola! It must have been hard to sync the drumset with the actual beat of the music. This was refreshing, the music was good, and everything is done very well. This is definitely a type of movie you don't see a lot on FXHome.

This is a 5/5 from me, and I must say this is a GREAT movie. I can't wait to see more productions of yours!

Beautiful film, great work!

For they who wants to sing along, here's the lyric:

Wander on this street of solitude
And nothing really matters anymore
Searched and searched I searched everyday
And now that I have found you please take me home

1-2-3-4

I know we were ment to be here
and now that I have found you
We can take the trip now
Go home!
Sit by the fire drinking cola
Talking bout a storie
No-one can beat!
Take me home

We are wild and we are free
And I know our lives will last forever
I wanna spend my life with you
And I've found you, please take me home

I know we were ment to be here
and now that I have found you
We can take the trip now
Go home!
Sit by the fire drinking cola
talking bout a storie
No-one can beat!
Take me home...

Com' on!

(bridge)

EIN ZWEI DREI VIER

I know we were ment to be here
and now that I have found you
We can take the trip now
Go home!
Sit by the fire drinking cola
talking bout a storie
STORIE!

Take me
home now cause we are together and we had the trip of our lives and now
We can sit by the fire drinking cola talking bout our
stories - STORIES!

Take me hoooome
Take me hoooome
Take me hoooome
Take me hoooome
Take me hoooome
(fade-out)

The music wasn't bad. In fact, in my mind, it was the strongest aspect of the video (which really should be the case with a music video).

I just honestly wasn’t very impressed with the video aspect of the music video. There many things that could be improved. The lighting in the opening shots is poor. The acting in those initial shots could also use work. The shooting of the other band members made no sense to me, seemed very strange, and threw me out of the mood (while equally strange, but in a good way) that the video had created.

Going from the email into the song was, however, a pretty good way to start the video off. The video had a number of humorous aspects and the ending shot of the heart hanging from the door was appropriate.

Not bad. Not fantastic. (Good music, though).
(2/5)
