Perfect Life

I wanted to share this music video (which I think is just a fan-made video and not the official music video) for Belong's 'Perfect Life.' *see update below*
Such a beautifully directed & filmed video.  Haunting/sweet/nostalgic.

Reader, Linn, let me know that the video from this was actually taken from a music video directed by Kristoffer Borgli for the band Young Dreams.  You can see the original video here.
I've said this in my blog before, but it honestly makes me really sad when someone uses other people's work and they neglect to give any credit.  I believe that if artists are generous enough to share their work with the world, they deserve to have credit for that work.  We are lucky that we are continuously supplied with such beauty to look at, listen to, and feel.  Everyone deserves credit.

On another note, here is another incredible music video that I just saw a minute ago and knew I needed to include it in this post.  This is a new music video for the band Yuck and is directed/edited by two of my friends, the talented Forrest Borie & Michael Reich.  Beautifully done, boys.

  1. I think these people ripped off a Norwegian director called, Kristoffer Borgli. The images are his from a music video he made for the band "Young Dreams' debut. They filmed it in an Arne Korsmo villa in oslo, check it out here:

  2. Linn-
    Thank you SO much for letting me know about this. It is so sad when people don't give credit...especially when I would have loved to see more of where this work came from!
    I updated my post and included this new information.
    Thanks again!

  3. Oh, no worries at all, and I agree with you, it's very sad. I love that video so much, too, I figured you would want to know :)
