Her Morning Elegance and Oren Lavie

I've been addicted to this video and song for some days, and finally i did some research on the author and the song and decided to post :)

About Oren Lavie

Oren Lavie is a songwriter of curly brown hair, whisperish voice, green eyes and suspiciously cold feet. He was born in 1976, two minutes behind schedule, and has been trying to catch up ever since. Oren Lavie is also a director, writer of funny books for sad children. Born in Tel-Aviv, Israel. He has long curly hair, green eyes, cold feet. Known to daydream on many an occasion.
He has written and directed several plays in London’s Off-West End and NY off-Broadway.
He likes to create dreamy visuals from realistic elements, he enjoys squeezing big worlds into small spaces.
As a songwriter he produced his debut album ‘The Opposite Side of The Sea’ which he released in 2008 on his own label, being that nobody else was going to release it.
He loves animation but can’t draw a straight line to save his life.
This video is his first venture into the Moving Pictures.

Video Facts
  • The video was shot all stills - roughly 3225 still photos for the entire video, using one camera, hanging from the ceiling for the main body of the movie.
  • It took 4 weeks before shooting to create an animated computer generated storyboard for the video, with 3d dummies for the characters.
  • It took only 2 days of shooting for the live actors on set to re-create the 3.5 minutes computer sequence, frame by frame.
  • Some of the bed sheets used in the video were taken from Oren’s own bedroom and are now considered collectors items, worth at the moment not very much and therefore used as bed sheets.
