David Watkyns releases music video for his debut single ‘Magic’
“’Magic’ is about a despondent man singing of his desire to feel the magical experience of being with his lost lover again. Drinking alone in the bar at 3:15 am, the alcohol medicates his dream into reality,” – David Watkyns.
Today sees the release of the music video for Cape Town-based singer-songwriter David Watkyns‘ debut single, ‘Magic’.
Every song David writes has a clear story and a clear visual behind it. It’s no different with his debut offering ‘Magic’. The music video follows the narrative of the song’s lyrics, which is about a young man singing about his desire to be with a lost lover. Late at night in a quiet bar, David’s performance is joined by a love interest (played by actress Savannah Schutzler) and his band members Kilo Kami (Drums) and Ryan McArthur (Bass).
Shot in a popular local bar Casa Do Mar in Table View, Cape Town, the video had Hugo Brand as Director of Photography and a cameo appearance from Actor/Model, Victor Geldenhuys, as the bartender.
The music video for ‘Magic’ shows off some fun, experimental uses of various dreamlike practical effects, like smudged lens creating flares and blurs, and David suspended in the air by the help of scaffold and post-production masking.
In summary, the video is pure ‘Magic’!
