Director Sarah Weinstein on shooting Above and Beyond’s track "Lonely Girl":
"To create the music video for Above and Beyond’s beautiful but haunting track "Lonely Girl", I decided to combine the ideas of love found and lost with the power of memory. In my own life, I’ve found that sometimes the relationships I form with others and the memories we create together are too important to ignore or leave behind. The lyrics of “Lonely Girl” seem to tell the story of a young woman who realizes the same thing after an amazing romance ends.
I built the storyline around my love of old-school analog photography. So I used the idea of the photography as a way for the lead character model/actress Jacqueline Lord to document the romance we see unfolding in “Lonely Girl”. In the end, these photos become the only way for her to show her lost love how much their relationship meant to her.
Jacqueline Lord and actor Scott Elrod made the perfect pair to bring my original vision to life onscreen. Jacqueline has graced the covers of countless major US and international fashion magazines and TV commercials. Scott has a significant US fan base for his work as a lead actor in TV series’ including “Men in Trees”, “CSI Miami”, “Hellhounds” and many others. Their professionalism and great chemistry made the two-day shoot a lot of fun.
In the end, I think "Lonely Girl" shows there is beauty in every meaningful relationship we have even when things don’t turn out the way we planned. And I hope it is a reflection of the musical and stylistic excellence that has made Above and Beyond the best trance music act in the world."
