Last Friday, Bonnie McKee released a new fun and retro music video for “Stars In Your Heart”. Watch here.
About the song and video, McKee comments
“Stars In Your Heart is a song I wrote years ago, and I always felt it deserved a stunning visual to complete my vision. I shot the video 3 years ago in January of 2014, but the timing was never right to release it.
Now, as a very special gift to my fans, I’m reviving it from the vault to share with the world!
The video is based on one of my favorite cult classic films, the iconic “Barbarella”. I wanted it to feel as authentic as possible, with hand built optical illusion sets, projections, and classic camera tricks rather than relying on green screen to capture the zero gravity effect.
The director and crew were as dedicated as I was to keeping that old school movie magic feel for the special effects. We had the set built completely from scratch and created the psychedelic “outer space” projections out of oil and food coloring…I am SO proud of the way it turned out! It’s times like these I am grateful to be an independent artist– I love having the freedom to give my art to you uncensored and whenever the hell I feel like it.
So, happy holidays, Bonbons! This is my very special never before seen video from the vaults just for you!” – Bonnie McKee
