Have you thought of a Ugandan video shot only at the lake shore by the sandy beaches and it comes out ‘fantabulous’? Well think no more, Omutima Oguluma perfectly fits the description.When Juliana Kanyomozi makes a love song and follows it with a video, she regales it with emotion.
Omutima Oguluma is about Juliana and she needs no help bringing on extras to help her launch the emotional artillery that makes up the song. No dancers, no other people, just Juliana and the environs. It is a well-choreographed routine that does not loose narrative as the video progresses.
The video’s director, Saint Jude exceptionally serves it justice to pick the beach as the video location. The wavy waters and the breeze all reinforce the notion of ‘love sick’ that the video and audio aims to portray.
Omutima Oguluma is characteristic of slow edits and dissolve cuts. It immerses the eyes and permeates the heart with its fluid amicable progression. Unlike most love videos, the close-up shots of Juliana associate the viewer with her and not the pains and pangs she sings about. The well embroidered dresses, the nimbus clouds and the king-size bed used in the video are all carefully chosen. Whether by coincidence or not, they match up to the song.
