Music Video - Group Idea

Pink Floyd - See Emily Play
Pink Floyd were a psychadelic-prog rock band founded in 1965 in England. They split up in 1996, but played a one off re-union performance at Live 8 in 2005.
 "See Emily Play" was the second single released by Pink Floyd. Apparently the song was written by Syd Barrett about a girl he saw in the woods after taking a psychadelic drug, although he later confessed to this story being made up. People also have suggested that the song is in fact about a girl he knew from when he was younger who had died.
  Our idea for the video was to have our protagonist have psychadelic dreams about this girl. It would be mainly narrative lead although because of the genre, there is a big opportunity to do more concept driven elements. We would use locations such as those mentioned in Barrett's story, for example on the Moor or in the woods. This would help both signify the protagonist's confusion and also again link back to the lyrics. Abstract imagery would again work well, possibly featuring overlapping shots or even time lapse imagery.
We would use weird vivid colours to help signify the drugs and psychadelia, with the girl in white to connote her fragility. We would possibly show the girl singing the lyrics faded on to other imagery, though this is just a brief idea at the moment.
  For further inspiration we plan to look at Pearl Jam's Jeremy (which features a similar story), Nirvana's Heart-Shaped Box (which has the correct colour scheme and imagery) and also perhaps Red Hot Chilli Pepper's Zephyr Song (which again channels the psychadelic appeal). It is hard to find more directly linked songs, as Pink Flod themselves didn't have music videos so perhaps looking at fan-made videos will be a useful alternative.
