So Close - So Far AwayMusic video, GER. 2016.Initial for the song was the contact to crystal meth addicts in an addiction clinic in Upper Franconia, where the musician and songwriter Hunteris working. In his lyrics he deals with the very abstract form of any kind of addiction. The music video wants to show the permanent conflict, by comparing dusty footage of a happy past (shot on an original super8 camera) to the ugly images of the depressing present of the protagonist. The music video works with the stylistic devices of documentary film. The hand camera mainly follows the drug addict on his daily challenges. His relationship breaks down. He can be seen consuming crystal meth, purchasing it, as well as gaining money to finance the addiction. Former friends leave him. At the end he sees himself in an hopeless dilemma.
