Creative Review Blog are hosting the initial screening of The Cinematic Orchestra’sTo Build a Home” music video. It consists of 2 thematically linked tracks and is more of a short film than promo. It’s done by Up The Resolution and it is a wonderful, sad film. There’s also an interview with the creators.

CR: Two tracks could work as the soundtrack to a short film?
UTR: We believed so, yes. Beyond the obvious allusion to soundtracks in the band name, and in the music itself, there was a narrative theme (of love and loss) that ran through both songs lending them to being linked as a single story. The band had themselves commissioned an unmade film treatment for which these tracks were intended as a ‘score’, and whilst we didn’t read that script we were very sensitive to writing something sympathetic to the music and lyrics, and that was suitably moving, but (hopefully) not too mawkish or melodramatic.
