Natalie Ambrose - Did You Really Mean It? (Lyric Video)

Independent Melbourne singer/songwriter Natalie Ambrose employs the use of cut paper shapes, a light-up speech bubble and an iphone 5s to create a captivating, stop-motion lyric video about love-lost and love-remembered. Captured in her bedroom in a sweltering Australian summer, Natalie Ambrose gifts us with holographic-paper clouds, cheeky animated sea life and a pinch of nostalgia. Don't blink too quickly, or you'll miss some story points (sketches from real life moments)

Director Statement

I never set out to make something fantastical or of high quality. I simply wanted to create something that connected with the heart of the song. As a creative I'm very visual so I played with textures and colors and pulled together this little piece. In the end I found that I loved the process and fell in love with the final result

I hope that in spite of the heartbreak persona that the song emits, that its brightness and quirks bring you joy
