THE BOUDOIR – VIDEO SHORT REVIEW

 Jerome Fitts

Clap! Clap! David Latreille for putting a twist, flavor and excitement in a video that encompasses the remarkable music by Asten Harris  yes A.K.A Apex Martin of Kayne West fame. Undoubtedly the song is killer but the rapid photos of actress Emilie Dumas should be displayed for patrons entering a nightclub anywhere. The thing of it is, this 2014  genuine piece of digital storytelling, which was submitted to WJ via The Cacique Film Awards , is listed as a music short film. Its the work of a genius!

“A two-minute short film about a young woman experiencing music through a psychotic phase.”

What Mr. Latreille did in 2014 was redefined style in a music video. Were the standards set by the brilliant producer/director followed since its original release? If we are honest with one another the answer is; no!

This a perfect example of why MTV introduced music videos that were created decades ago. Is it a song that should be on full blast driving in a quiet neighborhood? No.. Its too special.. This two minutes and eleven seconds tune could be put on while working out in the gym, dressing up to impress a his or hers date or going through that psycho phase that we all endure.

In closing this gem was created ahead of our time.
