In this project I had three challenges for myself. First to tell a story using images in an unconventional way. Second to tell that story without any direct narrative. And third to do this without thinking too hard about how to do it. My design was to use motion and texture to describe emotion. This was made more dramatic by technical problems with the pixelvison camera, which affected the way I went about editing this work. The voice samples in the song are meant to carry vague narrative through this video though not clearly heard. I completed this video in 20 hours, other then the music, which I wrote the week before.
