A series of setbacks later, here's a big old overdue update.
Big news first: I have email approval from Mystery Skulls' agent Larry Little, giving me permission to use "When I'm With You" as my thesis music! Credit will of course be given to Mystery Skulls/Luis Dubuc for all their copyrighted material, and I am not profiting from their use in my thesis' distribution.
Here also is the rough version of my pitch video:
My first choice of audio for the music video concept would be by the artist Mystery Skulls, whom I was lucky enough to see in concert earlier in the year. In particular I would like to build a narrative based on the song "When I'm With You".
(LICENSE HOLDER APPROVAL PENDING)
Beyond the lyrical narrative of the protagonist wanting to get back with the girl he is still in love with, maybe the featured couple aren't as perfect for each other as he thinks-- and maybe someone else could bring even more to his life.
