Yacht on the Rocks

Sail into laughter and harmony with Straight No Chaser’s comedic misadventure.
5/5

Review

Sasha Levinson and Damian Fitzsimmons’ collaboration with the American a capella sensation, Straight No Chaser, delivers a delightful and entertaining short music video in the form of ‘Yacht on the Rocks’. This cinematic gem, featuring the lead track ‘Heart to Heart’ from the 2023 album of the same name, seamlessly blends humor, music, and narrative to create a captivating ensemble film.

The storyline, written by Levinson and Fitzsimmons, centers around the group’s comical attempt to infiltrate a yacht, only to be hilariously mistaken for hospitality servers. The ensuing events unfold with a perfect mix of comedic mishaps and melodic harmony, showcasing the group’s incredible vocal prowess. The addition of supporting cast members adds depth to the narrative, enhancing the overall entertainment value of the film. <p.

Erik VanLantern’s cinematography shines through in the highly cinematic visuals, expertly framed and seamlessly transitioning between music video techniques and short film narrative elements. The result is a visually stunning and musically enchanting experience that keeps the audience engaged from start to finish.

This is not just a music video; it’s a mini cinematic marvel that successfully captures the essence of Straight No Chaser’s charm and musical talent. Levinson and Fitzsimmons have created a must-watch short film that leaves a lasting impression with its humor, heart, and harmonious melodies.
