Cillian Murphy’s Directorial Debut

Irish actor, Cillian Murphy has taken on a directing gig for Manchester-based band, MONEY for their music video of the first single, “Hold Me Forever” off their debut album, “The Shadow of Heaven.”

I absolutely fell in love with the music video, from the music to the elegance and beauty of the cinematography of the video. I think it really highlights the delicate movements and passion of ballet, and somehow it just fits perfectly with the music.

Here’s the video:

“Hold me Forever knocked me out when I first heard it. It’s a sublime mix of beautiful melody and arresting emotion – but uniquely it is not a love song. I wanted to try and match the song with images that were both visually elegant and powerful. For some reason ballet dancers kept coming into my head. The strength, commitment and fluidity of movement of the dancers seemed somehow to cut wonderfully to the song…….” – Cillian Murphy.
