Behind the Scenes – Wishing You Were Somehow Here Again

Wishing You Were Somehow Here Again was a very quick video, recorded and videoed over 1 1/2 days.  We were looking for something to record in a short amount of time, after the release of our Video, ‘Concerning Hobbits‘ which was fairly complex. We had watched Lindsey Stirling’s ‘Phantom of the Opera Medley‘, and the idea came up of doing something similar. As we did not have the time or resources to do something as complex as Lindsey, we decided to do just one song from the musical. When looking through the sheet music we had, we realised that ‘Wishing You Were Somehow Here Again’ is almost the only complete Solo sung by Christine. This made it the obvious choice and we went ahead with recording.

The audio was fairly straight forward, but we ran into problems with the video. Originally we had thought that it would be good to shot the video in a cemetery, but we decided that that could be a little bit too sensitive for some people. After thinking through other accessible locations we could not decide on place to shoot. Eventually someone suggested the location you see in the video, which is actually just beside our house.  (Note: other than ‘Concerning Hobbits’, all our videos to date have been shot on our property.) After that filming progressed quite smoothly, with the result being the video you have (probably) seen.

Thank you for reading, and we hope you enjoy our videos.
