The “Sweet Dream Recipe” music video is about a boy who is depressed and soaked in self-pity because he is bullied. He loses his peace of mind and has trouble sleeping because he feels helpless due to all the imbalance and lack of control.
When life breaks you down irreparably, you gotta repair yourself unbreakably.
But then comes a day when he decides to stop feeling sorry for himself, takes matters into his own hands and fights back. Hence, justifying the theme of the song that at times one must stand for his own interests and react by any means necessary, instead of acting like s/he was meant to be put down.
For most of the songs that I write, I get flashes of video when I close my eyes. I really liked the flashes of video that I got for Sweet Dream Recipe, so I decided to make a video for it.
The original script was much more complex and involved more people. However, I couldn’t find enough volunteers to participate my video. Thus, I chose to make it with 2 kids that live in my neighborhood. They are very talented, and cooperative and I thank them for having participated in my musical adventure.
While making this video, I realized that I like to make videos in general. I feel happy when I’m preparing the script, planning the scenes, recording them and the editing the footage. I’d like to make some more videos in the future, probably with more complex story lines.
For now, you can find the Sweet Dream Recipe Video on YouTube. In case you like it, then please leave a comment and share it with your friends – that will be of great help. Also, if you like this video/song, I invite you to listen to Geek Turned Monsta EP.
