(For my more sensitive readers, don't worry - the songs are generally much gentler than the band name implies.)
And yet, when I actually started making the video, it turned out to be more like a love story. I didn't see that coming.
It's interesting how a small tweak in the portrayal of something can completely change the way it comes across. I've seen villains who did very little damage be portrayed as major threats, evil or stupid actions painted as heroic, and improbable plotlines played with conviction... and in skilled enough hands, it often felt truly convincing.
In this case, all I had to do was portray a person, rather than a place, as the thing to which the video's protagonist wanted to come home, and it instantly turned into a love story.
