My First Project

My first project is complete!
I had to compress the files quite a bit in order to post the videos, so the quality is pretty bad.  But here it is:

This next video is one that I thought turned out pretty cool.  I was experimenting with the colour (as you can see I'm adapting to British English), speed and layering while trying to give the previous film the look and feel I had in mind.

Music has always been a very important part of my creative process, so I've decided to keep track of what I'm listening to while working on each piece.  Hopefully I actually stick with this plan because I think it would be a great thing to be able to look back on.
While working on the two previous films I was listening to some early blues and a lot of folk songs, obviously Woody Guthrie but also quite a bit of Dylan. These are the albums that provided the majority of the inspiration:

Here is a somewhat psychedelic short film I created while figuring out how all this editing stuff works.  This one particularly lost a lot of quality in the process of converting it into a file this blog accepted.

While working on this film I was constantly listening to Captain Beefheart and CAN, I couldn't get enough of these three albums:
