Back In The Studio & Music Video Update!

Hey guys and girls,

I am very excited to announce that I have been back in the studio and have recorded a brand new song to add to my collection! It is called "Your Lie" and I am very much looking forward to sharing it with you soon.

I am also very happy to tell you that I had another meeting with Anthony last week and we sat down to discuss my ideas for the music video I will be filming shortly for my first single "Nothing Without Me". As most of you already know I am a bit of a control freak...and a perfectionist, however he has been very supportive and helpful with negotiating my ideas for the video.

I initially had written a storyboard of ideas for the shoot, keeping in mind that I knew some of it might not be possible...or end up a bit too costly. I was happy with my initial ideas, however after a good ol chin wagging we decided that whilst they were great ideas...it would end up being about a 3 day shoot (and a lot more expensive than I had prepared for), so together we came up with another idea which I think is going to be just perfect! This will also keep it to a one day shoot (hopefully) and more often than not~the simpler the better :)

So now it has been decided, all that is left to do now is to meet with the man who will actually be doing the filming for me. His name is Ivan and as I understand it he actually does some work for the TV networks which is pretty cool! So we're meeting for coffee next week to discuss ideas and make sure we're all on the same page and confirm that what I've planned is doable on my budget.

Fingers crossed!

I won't let you in on all of the juicy details too early, but I will say that part of the clip will involve a live performance, so I will be needing a big crew of people to help me out by coming to dance with me! I'm really excited about this part the most I think! And I can't wait to get started and see how it all turns out.
It's the first time I've ever made a music video so I will be making the most of it and just trying to enjoy every second of it as much as possible!

I will also be getting a friend to come down and film the "behind the scenes" goings on, so I will also be putting together a backstage type video which I will most likely post on YouTube when it's finished...but I will keep you all in the loop and let you know when that comes out.

If any of you have any ideas that you would like to share with me or would like to be involved or help out in any way, please feel free to comment on this post, or find me on www.twitter.com/PetronellaMusic or my myspace link and send me a message.


Thanks for reading!

Peace and love,


P Xx

Cool- sounds great.
I'm sure I said it already, keep it simple. A simple strong idea is much more effective than ten little ideas. The more complex it is, the less likely it is to work.

Have fun and look forward to seeing some vision.
