There is no official music video currently out for Adele’s single,” Set Fire to the Rain,” but a music “cover” video has been receiving an incredible amount of attention and press. The music video stars an Adele “look alike” that is often being mistaken for the real Adele. The video was produced by Brianna Gardner and directed by Andrew Vallentine. Michelle Meredith stared as the Adele look alike.
The music video is not an average “cover” music video. This video contains all professional elements, including breath taking lighting and truly inspiring choreography. The music video concept, production and post-production was created and completed by aspiring and amazingly talented filmmakers. The music video was filmed in Lansing, Michigan.
The storyline of the video puts the focus on one man’s search for his own identity and sexuality. The man is in a relationship with a woman, but is also seeking the comfort of a man. The storyline can be related to by everyone. Everyone has fallen in love with someone they shouldn’t and everyone has been in a relationship when the other person seems incredibly distant.
The choreography captures the passion and emotional destruction that is heard in the song effortlessly. The dancers rise and fall with every beat of the music. Their feet move with purpose and fervor. The choreography itself is an amazing art. Selina McCale, a graduate of Michigan State University, dances in the music video and choreographed the entire dance. McCale is not only a rising star in media; she is also a rising star in dance. When the choreography is paired with Adele’s emotionally powerful song, “Set Fire to the Rain,” the combination is breathtaking.
This video captures the beauty found in Adele’s song as well as highlights a moment in a young filmmakers life. The video showcases the moment when creativity and emotion come together perfectly. These talented young filmmakers translated the passion in Adele’s song into this moving video brilliantly.
