This video is not really a music video nor a film trailer but a new type of hybrid! It was constructed as an afterthought with the simple aim of highlighting the music and clips from the film.

Heidi (Starofash) highlighted four lines of dialogue that she liked for their loaded simplicity, and felt were key to the film. However, she wasn't sure how to use them. Many months later when we were bouncing ideas back and forth about how to make the video we got the idea of only having the actors 'speak' these lines as onscreen text and this was helped by the fact that there was so little dialogue in the film. The order and sequence of the shots don't 'tell' the story of the film in a logical type of way; but act more as an impression or feeler for the film.

Sophie's Theme is mostly instrumental but below are some insights from Heidi into the vocals at the beginning of the song.

When writing this particular song, I just grabbed the first and best microphone in the studio to do the test vocals. While watching the movie on a laptop, I just found the vocal lines and words, recorded them and thought at the time that I would record them with the proper equipment later in the process. However, something odd happened when I started the recording process for the vocals, and that was simply that I did not at all manage to convey the same feeling as in the test vocals. So the test vocals stayed, despite being recorded with a rather cheap Sure SM58 mic (which is more of a live microphone). Nothing fancy, but it is genuine, and it works, Heidi says.
