Once again, I study this video to distraction and gather meaning from it:
How do you seem to be saying something, while saying nothing at all? Tell the story like a music video. Start with bland words, then match them with with ambivalent, sexy, symbolic visuals. Trust me, it can work. Work the risque but keep it subtle, the way this video does 2:01 into it. It is all, or it is nothing at all. Life is either or both. Every day is better when a marching band is involved. Good editing is a blessing.
This is opera.
