The creative team at Splice combined forces with Evanescence’s Amy Lee for her latest music video, “Speak To Me,” the original song written for the “Voice From The Stone” feature film soundtrack. The music video pays homage to the film’s tonality and mood by taking us on an intimate journey around an Italian castle rich with character, eclectic architecture and stunning landscapes.

Shot on the same location as the film in the Italian region of Tuscany, the piece bodes as an enchanting reflection of the landscapes, ethereal ambience and melancholic themes observed throughout Director Eric D. Howell’s “Voice From The Stone,” starring Emilia Clarke. Splice also contributed editorial, color and VFX to Howell’s film, which was released in select theaters and through streaming services this spring.
“I was very moved by the movie, and after having my first conversation with Eric and composer Michael Wandmacher, I felt a surge of inspiration and immediately began writing,” says Amy Lee. “It was an honor to be able to work with Eric on the music video as well, which was shot outside Sienna, Italy, at the same beautiful location as the film. We conceived the video as a parallel and backstory to the film, which explores the strong bond of love between Malvina and her son, and the belief that love is stronger than death.”
“I’ve been a long-time Evanescence fan, often listening to Amy Lee’s music when editing or rendering late nights throughout my career,” says Editor Clayton Condit. “It was a huge honor to get her talent and musical genius behind the project. ‘Speak to Me’ really sums up the spirit of the film. The opportunity to cut an Amy Lee music video was just one more bonus for the Splice team and for the film.”
“Having a single stop post house that not only handled the film and its promotional needs, but also collaborated wonderfully on the music video was just another example of the professionalism and expertise Splice brought to this project,” concludes Producer Dean Zanuck.
