David Bowie – The Last Five Years – Nacho’s Trailer - 2017
Featuring David Bowie’s song Lazarus, which was released as a single in December, 2015. It was subsequently a track on Bowie’s final album Blackstar, released on the 8th of January, 2016, two days prior to his tragic death. The a capela sections are taken from the official BBC trailer for The Last Five Years documentary.
The footage used here is mostly from the widescreen version of the video for Lazarus. Also used was part of the video for Where Are Now? The public scenes are from YouTube postings of Bowies last public appearance, when he attended the premier of his play Lazarus, in NYC. Also included are some cheeky borrowings from the BBC - I do hope they don’t mind, and about the whole concept.
In the unlikely event you don’t know, on January the 7th, in the UK at least, the BBC are premiering another Bowie documentary made by the same team who produced the outstanding 2003 documentary, “Five Years”.
This little video came about through my desire to hear the beautiful a cappella sections of Lazarus, that were featured on the BBC’s The Last Five Years Trailer. Where I live, I couldn’t see the trailer, and I noticed that on Bowie blogs and message boards, other people around the world also were unable to watch it. Happily for me, I was sent a copy of the trailer by a Bowie pal.
I wanted a cool way to share the vocal, and I decided to try to put it in a better context, with the visual of him singing the words from the Lazarus video. Once I had made the first version, I didn’t know what to do with it. I sent it to a couple of Bowie pals, to get their opinion, asking, Is it okay, is it in dubious taste etc? One of them came up with the great suggestion to turn it into a “fake” BBC trailer for The Last Five Years documentary.
Hope you dig it!
Do me an' yerself a favor - watch it in the H’est D available, with the sound UP LOUD!
If anyone has any other footage, or ideas for another video project, of material from Bowie's classic period, do please get in touch: email@example.com
Putting this video together was another huge labour of love, made with respect for the source.
I don't own the rights, and I'm not making any money out of this etc. Just a fan making videos for other fans.
