music video : Amanda Palmer & The Grand Theft Orchestra – The Bed Song

This week’s video is another music video from Amanda Palmer & The Grand Theft Orchestra’s album Theatre Is Evil. When asked how she and the director captured the raw emotion of the song in such an elegantly powerful visual story, Amanda Palmer has this to say, “When I wrote the script for ‘The Bed Song’ video, I knew it could either turn out looking like a heartbreaking piece of filmed theater or a bad soap opera. I think we achieved the former, but only due to the lucky, lucky alchemy of people and resources that collided to make it happen. The director, the designer, the location, the impossibly talented range of actors… all of them came together with the kind of unlikely timing that happens once in a lifetime. If I never make another music video, I’ll die happy knowing I made this one.”
