Music video shot, directed & edited by Carly Emerick. 
A Fading Brunette™ Film, LLC.

Film footage was shot on Wednesday, September 7th, 2016 on location at Century III Mall, in West Mifflin, Pennsylvania.

Theme: Desolate footage of Nick in abandoned spaces.

Carly used true vintage 1986 Special Effects Filters by Polaroid Spectra System during filming. (Including the Red Center Spot Filter 'F102', the Multi-Image 3 Filter 'F104' and the Multi-Image 5 Filter 'F105'.) These filters can be scene being removed from the camera lens at the 3:37 mark, to prove that this effect wasn't done with modern day plug-ins. 
 
Some fun facts: 
"Century 3 Mall opened in 1979. It was a booming and happening place in the 1980's and into the mid 1990's. It is now considered a "dead mall" and has very few stores left inside that are in operation. We did try to film some video footage inside the mall but were stopped by mall security and were told that we were not allowed to film inside the mall without prior written consent. It all worked out though to our advantage as we got some pretty cool usable outside footage. I remember going to that mall as a kid and always felt that the parking lot garage architecture was awesome. (If not a little scary.) I didn't realize until adulthood just how strange and unique it was. It was a good place to start filming."  ~ Carly Emerick

More about the music video:
"It's creamy and dreamy with purple and pink hues and it looks like it was shot on real film. The video opens with Nick running and closes with Nick walking. It's an artistic metaphor to represent that the actor is no longer running from himself. Nick was, as always, a dream to work with. I love this music video. I am very proud of it." ~ Carly Emerick

lyrics

“Awakening” 
© 2016 MRIX MUZIK (ASCAP) Juno Dreams Music (SOCAN)
All Rights Reserved. Words & Music by 
Carly Emerick, Hoyt Emerick & Juno Dreams

Verse One: 
I want a love that will consume me
So magical that it transcends the hands of time
A crystal clear divine intention
With a look in my eyes, you could read my mind

Lead In:
Passion ignites an eternal flame
Oil on canvas in a golden frame
I want a love, I want a love
Booming and loud like the sound of thunder
knowing just when to pull me up from under
I want a love, I want a love

Chorus: 
The love I've always tried to find
is awakening from deep inside, I feel it
awakening, awakening, awakening 
awakening, awakening, awakening 

Verse Two: 
I want to melt away the hours
A cerebral evolution of the conscious mind
The bridge to paradise, majestic
Where destiny, time and fate collide

Lead In 2:
Passion ignites an eternal flame
Oil on canvas in a golden frame
I want a love, I want a love
Adulation for so long I've craved
Titanium bands with our names engraved
I want a love, I want a love

(Repeat Chorus)

Bridge: 
I feel it awaken, I feel it awaken
I feel it awaken, I feel it awaken

(Repeat Chorus) 

Ad-lib: 
Na na na, na-na na na, na na na oh yeah! (x4)

Q&A; w/ Nick Bramlett & Carly Emerick

Q&A: with Nick Bramlett and Carly Emerick

Acting All Silly

Nick Bramlett and Carly Emerick from Candy Apple Blue.


We be acting all silly! But the song we wrote is an old school charmer for sure. No one is really composing new music like this anymore! We hope YOU will love our upcoming song "Baby Blue". It's written from the heart about the underdog. xoxo
