Ultraviolence (Original Cut - Freak Footage)

Recommended Posts

I re-created the original concept of the Ultraviolence video. As most of us know, the footage for the "Freak" music video was just re-used from what Lana shoot for the title track of her second album.  The way it was cut made it seem like they didn't even really try anything else besides just putting the new Honeymoon track over it, as it didn't take too much effort to sync Ultraviolence with the footage. I really wanted to do this, because the two or three fan made cuts that are on Youtube are not really going well with the beat of the music, and I preferred this arrangement of the footage. Hope you guys like it, let me know what you think.

It's done well but maybe there was a reason it wasn't used. What did the footage have anything to do with the song?

Not 100% sure if this was made for UV but some people theorize that "Jim" and "cult leader" references Jim Jones and the kool aid in the video references the Jonestown massacre/cult. Father John Misty also looks like Charles Manson here, which is fitting for the cult imagery. The ending of the video with them in the water is from Neil Krug's Pale Fire photoshoot, which was from the UV era. It kinda just makes more sense compared to it being used for Freak. Also Lana seems to have a thing for reusing music videos for later songs (like the BAR MV being used for White Mustang)

Except BAR MV was never reused for WM tho. The MV itself was done for both songs, and you have BTS to prove that. Lana probably was like “umm, not sure if I’ll scrap this song so this will be either for BAR or WM”. But yeah, I’m pretty sure the rest is like 99% “confirmed”. It just makes sense

yes!!! she said UV was written about a man (“Jim”) who she looked at like a cult leader, so the whole concept of the video is cult-themed

 

i feel like the original concept is so much better than the one they went with, so I kind of hate that she made this particular change lol 

 

but either way this is so dreamy ty

I'm just trying to think of how the UV video we got could have been used better, because I still really like it. 

What if it was used for Old Money? I think that could work. I might try putting it together.

 

edit: I tried it and it looks really nice! I didn't cut out the lip syncing cause its too pretty to discard, but the first and last minute really work :flutter:

You already got the explanation but here some quotes from the Lana Wiki:


"The music video footage was filmed around June 2014, originally for "Ultraviolence" and clips from it were featured in The Honeymoon Sampler which was released onto YouTube on September 8, 2015"

 

"The song originally had a music video that was shot in 2014, but for unknown reasons, it was not released, and later its scenes were used in the "Honeymoon Sampler" video, as well as in the music videos for "Music to Watch Boys To" and "Freak". In 2016, Father John Misty told NME, "I filmed the 'Freak' video two years ago. It was supposed to be the video for something else... She wanted me to play a cult leader in the video, with a bunch of a women."[12] A behind-the-scenes photo of Lana Del Rey dressed in the same outfit she wears in the "Freak" video, holding a clapperboard dated 6-9-14 and reading "Ultraviolence", further supports the idea that footage used for the "Freak" video was originally intended for the "Ultraviolence" video."

I've never seen this before! Is that the date up the top? Not sure how these cut scene things work.

 

At the bottom right you can see the date. They filmed that in 2014.

That's it. That's the UV music video.

Father John Misty looks so much like Jim Morrison here. Swoon.

Next, someone has to do the video for BAR that was used in White Mustang.

So 9th June 2014? (I think that's written with the month first). That was before her performance at Glastonbury with that dress. Iconic :grinds:

Omg I never put it together that the last scenes with the white smoke would be them after they died drinking the koolaid, like in heaven. I just thought it was meant to be "dreamy".

I have the BAR video you're talking about downloaded. I could get it in Dropbox if we can't find the video online anymore

I made this Best American Record edit using the White Mustang video back when it came out 3 years ago. I had to shorten the audio because there wasn't enough footage for a 5 min plus song haha

 

If you are interested, you can also watch the Ultraviolence edit that I made when White Mustang video came out. I also used the footage of the ultraviolence album teaser uploaded on YouTube and Marilyn Manson polemic footage. 

 

Hope you enjoy it!
