Exclusive Premiere: Jennifer Grassman's "Haunting" Is Scary Good
That being said, like "Bedroom Doors," the video slants just a little too long. The characters' progress moves very slowly, something much more noticeable with the jumping tune. Too many people let the length of their song dictate the length of the video, and it shows in "the Haunting" by dragging a bit by the time you hit the three minute mark.
"You just have a short attention span," replies Jennifer. 'The Haunting' was originally two songs. There was 'The Haunting,' and there was 'A Perfect World.' I wrote them both on the same day during a sort of creative downpour.
"They were like sisters," she adds. "In fact, they were like twins, each finishing the other's sentences. So, I grafted them together and that was that.
"When it comes to dictating the length of a song or film, or really any creative project, you have to let the art breathe," Jennifer explains. "If you chop things off too early just so your song will fit some bureaucratic industry ideal for the perfect cookie-cutter, 'radio-ready' track, you end up doing a disservice to the music and your listenership."
To recap, my only complaint about the video is that there is too much of it. Check it out below.
