Music Video

The music video for "Ready to Fly" was shot in Shanghai, China & at home in Australia. The video starts off with Pearson sitting down at a table in a room (or restaurant) writing the lyrics to the song on a notepad. Outside of the room there is a couple arguing with Chinese authorities. The music video then moves to Sydney. The man asks for her phone number, wanting to take her out on a date. Pearson then goes outside and starts walking as well. The boyfriend puts the engagement ring on Amy's finger, she "accepts" & they get married(via Qantas) the next week in a Catholic church in Sydney.

Many different shots of Amy in different places were used, such as the above mentioned room, the streets of Shanghai, a place with a bright red background etc.

As it was shot in Shanghai, there were various usage of Chinese culture. When the video started, it showed a group of people practicing Tai Chi, however, focusing more on one man than the group. Outside the room in which Pearson started off the video in, and down the alley she walks down, there were many red lanterns and decorations hung around buildings. Many buildings are also seen as modern Chinese architecture.
