Gay singer-songwriter Tom Goss drops his latest music video for "Make Believe" today, which is told in a stop-motion tale on his body. In the animation, created by painter Scott G. Brooks, Goss' body becomes an island paradise on which an animated duo frolic among monsters, a dragon, a volcano and a bear-piloted airplane.
It was shot in one 80-minute take. Each second of video took 28 seconds to film. It was directed by Aram Vartian and Michael Key.

You may remember gay singer-songwriter Tom Goss' video "Lover" about a soldier discharged under 'DADT' which I posted last November. Here's Tom's latest, "It's All Over":
Shot in mid-August in DC, the video shoot survived high heat and humidity, rain storms, power outages and even an earthquake. But you would never know. "Everyone stayed focused on having a good time. That's what I love most about this video. You can really see the joy in everyone's faces... Because the weather refused to cooperate, many of the shots were single takes, we had 30 seconds to get it right. In the past I think that would have stressed folks out but this time around it didn't. We knew we were making something fun and light and as a result approached it in the same manner. Hopefully people watching the video can see that and feed off that. In the end, we just want to make people smile."

"The video features Goss as the bereaved partner of an army soldier (DC actor Ben Horen) killed while on duty in Afghanistan. Among those playing medics who come to the aid of the wounded soldier are several former servicemembers who were discharged under the military's 'don't ask, don't tell' policy: Mike Almy, David Hall, and Danny Hernandez, all of whom are active members of SLDN. Keith Bryant stars as a fellow soldier. The video, Goss's fourth, was filmed in DC and Alexandria. is being directed by DC residents Aram Vartian and Michael Key of DC; Dylan Comstock is director of photography."
