The dark scenes of the moody and melodious 'Back to Me' music video are enhanced by the slow movements of the cinemagraph style in which directors Ian and Cooper shot them.

A child gets wrapped up in his crooked father's dramatic life when something goes awry and the father gets shot. The child's desperation is captured by the shots of frozen movement that are too slow for the extreme emotion he feels. The eerie melody and soulful song by Joel Compass follows the child as he reaches to the dark arts in his attempt to revive his father to life.

This haunting cinemagraph music video does an excellent job of portraying a dark world with a dark message. Stats for Slowly Shifting Still Videos Trending: Older & Chilly
