Take a look at boywithahalo's most recent alternative music video help. Here's what boywithahalo had to say when asked:
Where did you get your inspiration for this video?
"First I would like to say, this is my first ever music video of my first ever release! I originally made this song in early 2021 during my stay in China. I was stuck there for a year due to the pandemic lockdowns that happened just after I entered the country in late January of 2020. I was born and raised in China, so during that period I spent a lot of time inside my childhood home, and eventually went on a re-trace journey of my life and came to some new conclusions of who I am and where I want to be.
Everything that I have built up to this point was manifested within that time period, and in this video there is even footage from the day I recorded this song and just kind of started filming my reflection on the balcony glass pane. It was a raw and in-the-moment moment! That was the initial spark that set the emotional tone of every other bit of footage that came way later when I actually returned to the US. I decided to go for a personal kind of approach, like as if you were glimpsing into someone's diary, then I added stylized captions for the lyrics to make it look theatric. The magic of juxtaposition! All of it was shot with the same iPhone XR by the way, of which I went through so much trouble reformatting due to this "variable frame rate" thing that apparently plagues phone recordings specifically. Knowing that I have way more phone footage to be used for future music videos, I seriously cannot wait to deal with that all over again! That was sarcasm, but I really do love how everything turned out, and I much appreciate how resourceful a phone could be, let alone how personal it makes the resulting music video. I recommend trying it out especially if personal is your musical vibe!"
