Here is the release of a new music video by BOUWER BOSCH for the title track of the film, SY KLINK SOOS LENTE. The film features Ben (Stiaan Smith), a complacent mechanic who meets Linda (Amalia Uys), a beautiful and outspoken auditor in a bar one night. They start chatting and there are immediate sparks, but when Linda asks Ben what he does for a living, he lies and tells her he’s the lead singer in a band. Because not only is Linda out of Ben’s league, her father is also his boss. The film is set for release in cinemas nationwide on 30 September 2016.
The song SY KLINK SOOS LENTE was written by Bouwer Bosch, Dawie de Jager and Roan van As. The aim was to write a song which the lead actor, Ben, writes for Linda. Bouwer first wrote a different song as the first pitch for the title track, but then realised he used the wrong approach for the story. However, the chorus lines of this song were kept and Dawie and Roan wrote the rest of the poetry in the verses of SY KLINK SOOS LENTE.
“It was an amazing way of writing a song seeing that we all trust each other and we all wanted to put the film first. The song has been recorded and we are releasing the video, but myself and Roan have never even met. This is how songwriting looks nowadays – great ideas are shared and improved on electronically. It was a honour to write with Dawie and Roan.” – Bouwer Bosch.
The video was shot by Werner Botha and directed by WJ van den Heever and Bouwer Bosch on the 12th of July in an empty apartment in Randburg. Bouwer wanted to focus on something striking and plain and came up with the idea to cover a whole room in an apartment with the movie poster because the poster is visually easy on the eyes, the song is easy on the ears and the ‘less is more’ approach is always something that works.
“I think the song is one that will definitely be stuck in your head. Sy Klink Soos Lente is a great movie, so we used more footage from the film for the video which is not in the trailer. So we give away more and more as we get closer to the release of the film. I think everyone would be able to relate to the beautiful story in the verses of the song.”
SY KLINK SOOS LENTE is set for release in cinemas nationwide on 30 September 2016.
