SMWI*: Godspeed You. (Walk. Feel. Touch. In Nature.)

“We loved the evocative nature of ‘Godspeed You’ and wanted to create something beautiful and atmospheric to compliment the themes of the track. We particularly focused on the idea that we are part of something that is greater than us all. We decided on a simple narrative that follows a girl’s journey back into nature, watching as she is gradually dwarfed by the dramatic landscapes surrounding her, until she is finally enveloped into the earth – only to rise again as part of the natural landscape. Finally, she is cleansed and returns to the world as a woman reborn.”

~ Jack Pirie & Alex Hylands, Directors


  • SMWI* = Saturday morning workout inspiration.
  • Francesco Rossi joins forces together with MTV Europe’s Belgian Artist of the Year Ozark Henry to deliver his new single “Godspeed You.” Francesco Rossi, 39, is from Tuscany, Italy and is a DJ and Producer. Piet Goddaer, 44, is a Belgian Musician, better known by his stage name Ozark Henry.
  • The video is filmed in the Lake District, a mountainous region in North West England. A popular holiday destination, it is famous not only for its lakes, forests and mountains (or fells), but also for its associations with the early 19th century poetry and writings of William Wordsworth and the other Lake Poets.


  1. I LOVED this…the song, the imagery, the way her hand squeezes the skin of her shoulder – strong, secure. Just loved this.


  2. crawling up out the the primordial soup. the life cycle, lovely.


    • crawling up out of the primordial soup. LOVE THAT. Primordial. Love this word. Had to look it up:

      primordial |prīˈmôrdēəl|
      existing at or from the beginning of time; primeval: the primordial oceans.
      • (esp. of a state or quality) basic and fundamental: the primordial needs of the masses.
      • Biology (of a cell, part, or tissue) in the earliest stage of development.


  3. Reblogged this on It Is What It Is and commented:
    Saturday morning indeed!


  4. Really interesting. Loved both video and music separately, but thought it was an unexpected choice to put them together.


  5. Deep. Thanks David 🙂


  6. I watched the video first and then played it again with my eyes closed, listening closely to the song. The back drop is breath takingly beautiful. Must go there. I enjoyed this, thanks for sharing.
