Cat Velez - 3rd June 2015

This heartfelt video for Show Me Love by Isaac Tomiczek illustrates the age-old truism that actions speak louder than words. It features two couples and their signs of affection, with one couple that get engaged and supporting each other after the loss of a loved one, and the other undergoing the pain of getting a large tattoo of a heart over their ribcage.

Towards the end we realise the couples are friends when they come together at the memorial service, making sure their mourning friend doesn't feel left behind.

ISAAC TOMICZEK:

"The original song is so famous, especially the lyrics so I really wanted to do something different.

"Actions Speak Louder Than Words" was the jump off for my idea. The idea of actions being louder than words really supported the narrative and the visuals and that's when the idea of sign language came into play. Our lead couple are actually a couple in real life.

"She is deaf and he has learnt sign language since meeting her. She had practiced performing the song with him so I decided to build the narrative and performance around them. On the day they were so real and genuine that it made everything else in the narrative feel more authentic. Hopefully this shows and adds some heartfelt emotion you can't fake."
