Maiden of Fantasy Music Video

Maiden of Fantasy is a song that I wrote music and lyrics to quite a few years ago. This recording was done as a student project for the Conservatory of Recording Arts. In addition to singing the song in the studio, I also played 12-string acoustic guitar and all keyboards. I was joined by Roger Wiedabach on Drums and Harmony Vocals, Ed Clapper on Electric Guitars and Harmony Vocals, and Casey Smith on Electric Guitars. For the life of me, I can’t remember who played bass.

The bodypainting was an Elven Princess theme that painted live at CopperCon, a sci-fi/fantasy convention in Mesa, Arizona in 2010. The model’s name was Eden and there is more info about the event on my webpage at http://www.futureclassx.com/bodypaint/conventions/100903-CopperCon30-ElvenPrincess/CopperCon30.htm

The fantasy illustration of the character with the three wolves was a digital painting that I did in 2012 using Photoshop. There are prints and cell phone covers of this painting available on my website at www.MarkGreenawalt.com.

I shot the video with a cast and crew of just me using a GoPro Hero2 camera and then I edited it using Avid Media Composer 6. I took the still shots of Eden using a Canon 5D Mark I (one image was shot by Steven Goldstein and it was so awesome I had to include it).

The lyrics to the song are as follows:

I stood alone in a room lit with candle light
And stared at her portrait deep in the night
The paint was fading
And chipping away
I must have gone insane, but I swear I heard her say

Come with me
Back in time to chivalry
Come with me
Trust my love to turn the key
Come with me
If you’re looking to be free
Come to the sixteenth century
I heard her say she’d be my maiden of fantasy

Dazed by the wine but it seemed so real
I saw her face and love was all I could feel
A window through time
Her body led the way
And as I reached for her hand again I heard her say

Come with me

By her side, morning fills my eyes
I can’t remember the night, I try to fantasize
Did I dream of the future
Or am I in the past
All I know is she called for me and I’m here at last

Come with me
Back in time to chivalry
Come with me
Trust my love to turn the key
Come with me
If you’re looking to be free
Come to the sixteenth century
I heard her say
