Screenplay (concept) for "Adore" - Z.Tao
Another concept music video. I love this song. I could really listen to it all day. There were so many ideas that popped into my head for this song but I think I liked this concept the most.

Enjoy!
Opening Scene: Restaurant/Cafe. Night.

(Camera moves in from outside)
Towards window of cafe, to Tao sitting alone drinking something from a shot glass.

(Camera goes through window for close up)
Tao starts to sing.

“当whisky喝完之后的我
I got swag
你迷上了我吗baby yes
酒杯里面
仿佛倒映出了之后
我们要做的事呢”

(Camera still focused on Tao)
Tao stares off in the distance, contemplating, waiting for someone.
He looks to the door.

“We don’t have to go out out out
Baby come over go down down down on me
Go ahead I’ll obey
Body to body we’ll go all the way"

(Camera switches to door, door opens in slow motion)
Pretty girl walks in and sits in a booth.

“其实我什么都不缺
只要你要 只要我有
无所谓
你可以带走这一切
可以带走这一切
但是拜托可不可以不要
再触碰到我的底线
让我的心支离破碎”

(Camera swatches back to Tao)
Tao leans forward on his elbows, admiring her as she's smiling but she doesn't notice him staring. He keeps staring at her.

“Let me tell you how I’ll do it
Slide next to you
Take you out to dinner
Hold your hand and whisper”

(Camera focus on Tao's phone screen, over his shoulder)
Tao takes pics of girl sipping her drink, looking at her phone.

(Camera focus on Tao's expression)
He slowly looks up at her like he really wants her.

“Baby baby I adore you, adore you”

(Camera zooms out for wide shot)
They are sitting in two different booths, but facing each other.

“again”

2nd scene: Street

(Camera on moon, then pans down to Tao)
He is walking down the street under a clear night sky, the moon is full, following girl.

“当whisky喝完之后的我
I got swag
你迷上了我吗baby yes
酒杯里面
仿佛倒映出了之后
我们要做的事呢”

(Camera pans from Tao to girl)
She stops and turns around.

(Camera pans back to Tao)
Tao stops and pretends to be on his phone.

“We don’t have to go out out out
Baby come over go down down down on me
Go ahead I’ll obey
Body to body we’ll go all the way"

(Camera pans from Tao to girl)
She turns and continues walking.

(Camera focus back on Tao, follows him across street)
He follows more carefully, slowing his pace. He sees a flower vender across the street and crosses the street.

“其实我什么都不缺
只要你要 只要我有
无所谓
你可以带走这一切
可以带走这一切
但是拜托可不可以不要
再触碰到我的底线
让我的心支离破碎”

(Camera zooms in on his hand)
Touches each flower as if he's touching her.
Pays for a bouquet.

(Camera follows behind Tao)
Tao runs to catch up but stays on that side of the street.
He sees her and slows to a pace that it matches hers.

(Camera zooms out, wide angle)
They are on opposite sides of the street

“Let me tell you how I’ll do it
Slide next to you
Take you out to dinner
Hold your hand and whisper”

(Camera swings back and forth to him and the girl)
He smells the flowers pretending to be walking next to her, holding her hand.

(Girl walks out of frame)
Girl goes into a house

(Camera stops on Tao as he stops)
Tao watches from across the street.

“Baby baby I adore you adore you”

(Camera switches from Tao to house and back again)
He watches as lights come on.

Interlude/ 3rd scene: Inside two story house

(Action: No singing, just action)
He sneaks along side of house and climbs up a tree to a balcony on the second floor, with flowers still in hand. He gets comfortable on tree limb. Waiting for bedroom light to come on.

“We don’t have to go out out out
Baby come over go down down down on me
Go ahead I’ll obey
Body to body we’ll go all the way”

(Camera angled over Tao's shoulder, following him in)
Watches her get ready for bed and the lights go off again.
When he feels it's safe, he crawls across and climbs over the balcony rail.
Opens the glass doors and slips in.
He lays the flowers on her nightstand, crouches down next to her bed.

(Camera angles from opposite of bed)
Admiring her as she sleeps.

(Camera pans and angles at head of bed, down between him and girl)
(Tao sings next verse while hovering over girl.)
“We don’t have to go out out out
Baby come over go down down down on me
Go ahead I’ll obey
Body to body we’ll go all the way”

Hovering over her
He looks at her face, breathing her in deep, nuzzling close but not touching.

(Action: No singing, just action)
(Quick flashback scenes from previous scenes as he leaves her room)
He slips out the balcony doors and over the railing, climbs down the tree, and runs off into the night.

“Let me tell you how I’ll do it
Slide next to you
Take you out to dinner
Hold your hand and whisper
Baby baby I adore you adore you”
"I adore you”

(Camera blurs and fades out black)
