This video is an exercise in breaking down a film into 10, six-second clips paired with a single, unbroken piece of audio. This can distill the film into essential moments, retelling the film’s story (as in this example), or it can focus on specific moments that repeat throughout the work.
Here’s a silly little video I made testing out the time-lapse feature on my newly-acquired GoPro camera in December 2014. UFO added in editing (or so the government has instructed me to tell everyone).
This video briefly explores the aesthetic aspects (primarily the use of music and the cinematography) of black romantic films and how this contributes to the films’ cult status. This video was created for TCF 444 – Black Cult Films at the University of Alabama in October 2014.
The video was researched and written by Seth Farmer, Gaby Wilson, Brittany Young, and me. Narration by Seth Farmer. Video editing by me. Music: “Boomerang” by Marcus Miller; “Hopeless” by Dionne Farris
