It's not easy to shoot music videos for songs that are strictly instrumentals. The action of a song with words usually carries the music videos along but trying to keep things rolling with a tune that is strictly an instrumental typically requires far stronger visuals.
With Apollo Brown's latest video for the track "Time Passed Autumn" from his latest release, Clouds, he actually shoots everything himself with a hand-held HD camera. It's a homemade effort that, despite being as low-budget as possible, doesn't feel "cheap." The video is rich with imagery of Apollo's loft in Detroit. After emailing him quickly, Apollo says he just edited it on iMovie and released it yesterday. It's officially Apollo's first video.
