As we all know, when creating any work, bits come and bits go. It can be a painful process, and as you fumble along, you can never really say for sure if any or your decisions are right or wrong. Nevertheless, these are sacrifices that must be made for the sake of art.
“A designer know he has achieve perfection not when there is nothing left to add, but when there is nothing left to take away” – Antoine de Saint-Exuper
So it seems this is another one of those babies that was culled. I actually started YouTube hopping because I remembered in a previous YouTube hop, my suspicions – of the montage in the film being a heavily hacked-to-pieces (“edited”) version of the original scene – were confirmed when I discovered the full extended clip. Great stuff. And fascinating to see how the little snippets fit into a larger work.
But that is not the clip I rediscovered today. No, my friends. This is a moving storyboard to the tune of the original version of Can You Feel The Love Tonight. It’s very different, some of the lyrics are a tad more cheesy, some of the other lyrics hint strongly at a one night stand, the shots are beautiful, and so is the singing.
And even if you don’t like it, it could be worse… (I heard Elton John had an aneurism after hearing the comic sidekick’s “rendition”).
