Well I have to remix a video for my 3rd project. It was hard to narrow down the choices from the copyright-free options. Most of the videos are from the 50s and a little weird. There was one in particular called “Boys Beware” that warned against molesters and another anti-pornography video from 1961.
I’m using a video called Emotional Maturity, which is one of many films about dating from the period. I had a hard time figuring out, as usual, where to start. But following the professors advice, I focused on the audio/music and it all kind of fell into place. I am going to use a few NIN tracks from a copyright free album called Ghosts. The tone of the tracks makes the video seem darker. The story is essentially about a guy named Dave getting dumped by Jill, who is going to date “Jim Dawson” who is a little more emotionally mature (and better at sports, owns a car and his own Dad even likes him better) than Dave. I want to heighten everything, make it more melodramatic.
I have only tried to make a video one other time, it was when I first got my macbook and decided to play with the video software. I called it Killer Octopus – it was a video of Buster when he was a puppy growing very angry with a toy octopus. I wanted to post the original video, but you have to pay this site to make that happen…
If I can find a way to share it, I will post it here.
