Today, Corey shared where it all began, with his very first music video he made, during his time shooting The Lost Boys, for the 1986 track, ‘Runaway.’ The music video is included in Corey Feldman’s Love Left 2.1 box set, and it has a history of its own.
“HERE IT IS, IN ALL ITS HUMILITY, MY VERY 1ST ATTEMPT @ A SONG, & A MUSIC VIDEO! FROM THE UPCOMING LOVE LEFT 2.1 BOX SET I GIVE U…#RUNAWAY BUY THE BOX SET ONLY @http://COREYFELDMAN.NET.”
The video is described by CiFi Records, saying, “Corey Feldman Official Music Video of Runaway from Love Left 2.1 Box Set: This Amazing Time Capsule has been completely restored from the Original 1986 VHS tape it was found on. ‘Runaway’ was the very first song Corey ever wrote, produced & recorded.”
Filmed at his father’s tiny 1 bedroom Hollywood apartment in 1986 while Corey was shooting The Lost Boys. The cast is made up of a group of Corey’s closest friends at the time. 2 boys his own age, featuring his cousin Michael, and close friend Jason, who was also a child actor, a female actress/dancer, a magician introduced to him by Michael Jackson named Majestik, (not an abuser) and 2 men who would later become Corey’s sexual abusers a few short weeks after this video was shot. Corey Feldman says this in the press release.
“I felt this was a pivotal piece to include for my most dedicated fans, as it is my very first attempt at a music video and the first song I ever wrote and recorded. Sadly, it also features two men who would soon become my abusers. I’m not thrilled about promoting them as a trickledown effect of releasing this, but I feel it’s as poignant as it is unsettling, upon the realization that this was an obvious cry for help from my 15-year-old self that sadly fell on deaf ears. Two months later I would fall victim to their agenda, and as a result fled my home and began the journey towards healing, albeit with several expected bumps along the road of salvation.”
The video was directed and choreographed by a young Feldman. Impressive work for a 15 year old. Shockingly, the couch in the video was Corey’s bed during this time. Breaking the preconceived notion that Corey was a “spoiled Rich Kid with a silver spoon in his mouth.” The shocking reality is much more upsetting. Corey wrote this song as a “Cry for Help.” The song and video, which originally had a 10-minute scripted build up to the musical part of the short film, was about an abused kid, who ran away and ended up on the streets where he would be discovered by Majestik’s character (Black Jack) the town Pimp, in an alley, who convinces Corey to come upstairs to this warm safe apartment for a hot meal and some clean clothes.”
The YouTube video’s description continues the tale of the video and Feldman’s life story. It’s clear he took every step to chronicle his life with bleak realities, humility, joy and triumph. Kudos, Mr. Feldman! Can’t wait to see what’s waiting for us in the Love Left 2.1 box set! Here are the deatils in full from the press release.
