Hi Everyone at AnD,

Before we look at the final product, let’s take a quick lesson in the truest truism of all, none is more true than “The Customer is Always Right”. Since Aaron is playing a waiter in this video, I think he would agree with me on that…
As new directors, we have no bargaining power to ask for final cut, and in theprefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" /Hong Kongentertainment industry, many experienced film directors don’t have control over editing either. So it’s up to the producer or the person who paid you to decide in what shape the audience will be viewing your work.
I have to admit, I am a film person, I want to tell stories, so as a rookie music video director, I knew I favored the storyline more than just loud visuals. So I worked with the CG team of the movie “Naraka 19” to make some interesting visuals to balance the two. I had edited a version with a storyline between Aaron and the waitress, where in the end the audience finds out they are both in each other’s dream world…
Sadly a decision was made to abandon my version and out came the version which you are about to see… Hence the expression, “The Customer is Always Right!”
For now, my director’s cut will stay neatly tucked away inside my computer in ones and zeros form. Hopefully one day, people will get to see it…
