i managed to find the website, but no clue which one is the music video. some good other stuff there, too.
i'm pretty sure that the video the person is talking about is the one called 'welcome to my life'

The use of lighting and CU's helped a lot with taking away
the video presence. Your gels helped warm things up and
your compositions did some decent justice for the piece.
I agree, the video didn't go anywhere so it was hard for
me to watch it all. Obviously its still video, so it never really
looks alive, but for what you worked with I think you did
a pretty nice job. I'm sure you pulled all this off for a hundred
bucks or so, so I solute you.
For such a cheap production though, you could've got a buttload
of footage to really pull a story together, maybe consider
it for next project, eh!?

To be really honest though, I didn't operate the camera for this one - I usually do on all the dramas that I shoot, apart from one or two occasionally, but the director had very specific ideas about what he wanted and wanted to shoot it...We did get a load more footage than you see as we shot for a whole day, but he didn't use it in the edit in the end. There was a load more footage with the girl but I suppose he must have felt that part of the 'story' didn't work as well as he thought.
