Music Videos

During the interims of my scripted series, I loved to dabble in music videos. Taking my favorite songs and creating a visual narrative helped me work on my mental health. This inevitably gave me the confidence to make my own album (Thanomaniac) and start a musical company. Here, you can find my collection of projects in no particular order.

Shapiro Gaffer/Grip: Max Coddington & Alex Friedman Producer: Maddison Lafferty Makeup: Jacquelin Cottrell Lyrics: I want nothing more Than to give you the world, I want nothing less Than to provide you with the best. I want nothing more Than to present you the sky, I want nothing less Than you not to question why I wanna live in your head I wanna think through your brain I wanna be that sweetness You stick into your veins I wanna feel through your eyes I wanna hear with your speech I wanna learn your morals Those words that you preach Being in loves falling up from the ground But hitting the sky is a much louder sound Being in love is like choking on air Except now oxygen’s not enough to share I don’t know why, I love to see you cry I don’t know how, but I care that you try All your tears are the beat to a song If I tapped my foot, would that be so wrong? I want nothing more Than to deliver you truth, I want nothing less Than you to hold onto your youth. I want nothing more Than to provide you your dreams, I want nothing less To show what they mean. Being in love is like finally dying There’s things you deserve without even trying. Being in love is like a lovely suffer ‘Cept you’re never guaranteed to recover I don’t know why, I love to see you cry I don’t know how, but I care that you try All your tears are the beat to a song If I tapped my foot, would that be so wrong? I don’t know where, who ever does? I don’t know when, but it was sight at first love All your sighs, melodize with the song If I harmonize, would that be so wrong? I know it sounds cheesy That’s why I put this in song If maybe, I loved you Would that be so wrong?

He will always love, They will always love me. Protecting every part of my fragile psyche It’s turning, I’m learning, why people canno’t b’lieve Chorus Reflections always cross a line, Most people never have the time. What more will I ever need? If you, he, she, they’ll always love me. Verse 2 Oh, there you go, I wish you well See you tommorow, I mean, hope to hell Beyond your eyes, and perfect skin I’ll borrow- if I ever can? Lying, that we never do I’d burn my arm before lie to you I’ll ache in vein, I’ll take your pain I’ll suffer so you won’t again Pre-Chorus 2 You can always love, She can always love me. He can always love, They can always love me. Protecting every part of my fragile psyche Is churning, concerning, why people canno’t b’lieve Chorus 2 And I don’t need to love myself, My porcelain heart is safe on the shelf. Why, I know you cannot see. That they, he, she, you will always love me. You should always love, She should always love me. He should always love, They should always love me. Protecting every part of my fragile psyche Is turning, I’m burning, why can’t people just see? Bridge/Outro Projections of the 7th kind, Who else needs cross my mind? No one needs to love myself, If I grab from the highest help, Narcissist by first degree, Nothin’ you will hear from me My porcelain heart fell off the shelf, When you, they, she, he didn’t even help. You never loved, She never loved me. He never loved, They never loved me. And I have only got myself, Me here, matters, no one else So how’ll you sit and disagree? When you never ever even really loved me?
