It's intricately planned, as each dream scene folds subtly into the next. Of course, there's still some great effects in form form of walls of interlinking arms. Originally, Charles had planned to venture into the world of performance video with the song, but in the three weeks delivery time, his thoughts had changed somewhat:
"Meeting Ann-Sophie Claeys (singer and songwriter of Maya's Moving Castle) gave me a completely different perspective. She clearly wanted something with a storyline, so I asked her a lot of questions about the song and its lyrics, to try and understand the world and atmosphere she had built. What struck me most was how personal it was, and how hard it was for her to actually talk about it.
The next day, that discussion had led me towards this story about a failing relationship and all its uncertainties, through a string of dreams."
