I think I fell in YOUNG LOVE with you! A little poetic license, but oh Elvis Costello, one in a million.
Now back to the book of ‘YOUNG LOVE.
Jump (rope) a few months ahead...
As soon as all those early pieces of inspiration and concept became more concrete, the rest was full steam ahead in a Godspeed sort of humor. Jumping thru the ropes of video making was somewhat challenging and I now have an increased respect for the all the people that can visually tell a story with film.
But along for the YOUNG LOVE ride, I had with me THE BEST creative army of dedicated, inspiring and committed people any NLX could hope for.
I really want to thank the full YOUNG LOVE team...
Micha Dahan, Tess Girard, Rob Merrifield, Dana Bondy, Donnie Mullin, James O’Bryan, Lyz Plant, Lisa Cannon and Jason Haney.
I’d also like to thank the hall on Parkdale for so serendipitously not having bingo or a cabbage roll raffle that day/night and renting us the best Ukranian Hall on the planet! Funnily enough, for also being a sort of props department by having empty toilet rolls (which we covered in black tape)that doubled as microphones... It was a small victory in trying to make the microphones to speak our language.
Another thank you is extended to the Lord Renfrew of Holt’s for allowing us to ‘borrow’ the nicest Chloe on the hanger.
If you look closely some $ tags accidentally crept in.
To the fans/friends, who also doubled as the professional artists they are... kudos to Lyz Plant... THE BEST Make Up Artist period. Full stop! She did a quick change on no budget, and even offered up her sexy boots to the shoot. Oh I loved those boots! And Rob ‘I broke my rib and danced/skipped the whole day and never complained or mentioned it’ Merrified. I heart you completely!
YOUNG LOVE took a long time to complete from start to finish... but now is when it begins a second life!
So many people gave so much love, effort and respect into its making and I think that is why the public has begun to find YOUNG LOVE so loveable.
So much so that this next week ahead, Nov 8th – 12th, it will be on MTV!
It has made it to THE FRESHMEN on MTVU!
GO TEAM... GO NLX YOURSELF!
So now comes the part where I beg...
VOTE NLX & YOUNG LOVE!
You can vote as often as you like. A trillion times a day! I dare you! If WE win, YOUNG LOVE could appear in regular MTV rotation.
But in my heart, the experience and the privilege of being part of this video has already been a victory.
GO TEAM GO NLX YOURSELF!
