Alexisjoyvipaccess: You’re premiering your music video exclusively right here on Alexisjoyvipaccess.com – can you tell us the creative process behind making the music video?
Hope Leigh: Making the song was a blast working with my producers ( Will Noon and Nathan Harold of FUN.) and duetting with Ryan Amador – so coming out of the studio, everything was so positive and I wanted to start thinking of video concepts. With most of my music videos in the past ( Wherever You Go, Save For Now, Home To Me) I would have an idea and try to cast the perfect people to bring it to life as it was playing in my mind, with “Meant To Be”, I hadn’t had an idea that really stuck yet. I stumbled upon a 15 second instagram video from my friend Jordan De Leon. (@JordanLacity ) of her and her boyfriend in Big Sur, and although it was just a casual date for them that they caught snippets on film, to me their young love just looked like a movie. I realized I could capture something so real if I had a real couple in my video as opposed to casting strangers. I called her and was just like ” OH MY GOD! You and your boyfriend are the greatest can we put it to my music?” Luckily she didn’t think I was crazy and they were both stoked to be involved! Luckily, Ryan is a genius with a camera and was able to also shoot my singing to splice in.
Alexisjoyvipaccess: If you could describe your music video in just one word – what word would it be?
Hope Leigh: PUPPYLOVE ( Is that one word?)
Alexisjoyvipaccess: What are you looking forward to the most for fans to see in your music video?
Hope Leigh: This year has been really exciting for me coming out of by band Me & Mr. Cassidy as a solo artist, and it’s been so exciting to show my fans such a playful side of me, through songs that are coming straight from my heart. When I wrote this song, I wanted to capture that young reckless feeling when you first fall in love and just want to run away and do everything together. I didn’t even have a chorus because I just wanted it to reflect that 0-60 feeling you get in your heart, I am so excited to have a video that shows that with a REAL couple REALLY running away for the weekend just to adventure in love. Their relationship is so genuine, I am excited to have my song behind it.
Alexisjoyvipaccess: What was the atmosphere like on set of your music video?
Hope Leigh: That majority of the shots ( of Ryan and Jordan) were shot by them on their trip together, so while I don’t know exactly what it was like, from what we can all see it was clearly a lot of fun, playful, romantic, and careless. I think it was so real – as opposed to shots I’ve gotten in the past where a couple is acting and there are directors in the room and camera men, and a half a dozen crew members, this was just them being in love, nothing is perfect, but it feels like you are just in their room with them. The shots with me and Ryan were filmed in Pasadena and Echo Park, and Ryan is such a blast to work with it was so much fun! He does a lot of parkour competitions, so he shot a lot of this while riding past me on a skateboard, or hanging off walls- its really impressive! ( fun fact, the shot that looks like a drone flying over a cliff was actually him RUNNING down a cliff with a camera over his head shooting slow mo- he is really a daredevil!) Some of the shots were slow motion with me singing, so we speed the song up to 2.5 times as fast and then I sing it CRAZY fast which is always a funny process. A few passers by probably thought I was crazy. It was the most laid back easy video to shoot – coming off my last video Home To me that had like 40 girls lip singing in my apartment and 300+ global submissions- it was so relaxing to shoot such an intimate video.
