Terrace Martin Paints A Picture Of Lost Love With ‘A Velvet Portrait’ Short Film

If you ever wanted to see the perfect picture of love lost, you can witness it now through Terrace Martin's new short film A Velvet Portrait. The 10-minute short, set to music from Martin's GRAMMY-nominated album Velvet Portraitsfollows a man destructively drowning his sorrows amidst the memories of a past love. The video, directed by the Los Angeles directors' collective APLUSFilmz, features actors Michael T. Smith, Dolly Gray and Brinnen Thompson.

Hurt bae roams around the city drunk, plagued by a woman he's seemingly using to replace his former love, with no success. Film of the former couple help the short transition from Martin's song "Turkey Taco," featuring Keyon Harrold, to "Think Of You," featuring Kamasi Washington and Bounce-Worthy vocalist Rose Gold. The vignettes make it clear there's no relationship left to salvage. Still battling with the true end of his relationship, our guy is haunted by mimes as the video ends on the beach with "Never Enough," featuring Tiffany Gouché, playing in the background.

One of the most hard working men in modern music, it's no surprise Terrace Martin found the time to crank out a short film. He's most recently been honored in February by the Los Angeles City Council for his contributions to music and to the community. Velvet Portraits, which debuted last April, is a jazzy, soulful album worth copping if you haven't already. To hear more from the artist, watch his short film A Velvet Portrait and be prepared to watch it a few more times after that.
