The Shadow Bureau continues on the brilliant path of tying each single release to high profile films. “Don’t Give Yourself Away” is inspired by the Australian film Griff The Invisible. The flick stars beloved HBO True Blood star Ryan Kwanten (Jason Stackhouse in the TB series) as the movie’s lead actor. Griff, office worker by day, superhero by night, has his world turned upside down when he meets Melody, a beautiful young scientist who shares his passion for the impossible. This cerebral and romantic film is the perfect setting for the equally atmospheric “Don’t Give Yourself Away.” However, this music video turns the typical movie/music video formula upside down by having scenes from the film become ghostly projections upon a choreographed dance performance. As the dancers perform their graceful motions and twists, the faces from the projection of the film end up being transposed with their own for a haunting and eerily majestic effect.
