It’s one step forward and two steps backwards. It’s time in slow motion, reversed. To me it’s missing home. It’s observing and realising that what you have is great. That what you have doesn’t have to be everything. In fact, it is often barely anything at all. It’s moving on.
Verling’s talent has always been aparent. His work never failing to encapsulate an audience. Having said this, Day has something a little bit extra. Perhaps it is the incredible song choice (James Blake, Unluck) but then, it is rare that the musically inclined videographer ever puts a foot wrong in this department. And while the avant garde editing certainly pays tribute to the piece’s success, it is more than technical skill that shines through. Put your finger on it. It is his ability to convey everyday things, thoughts and emotions as something bigger, as something beautiful. He reassures us that we are worthwhile, interesting and that what we feel is worthy of a video as beautiful as Day.
