Even now I don't really see myself making proper films. No screenplay, no character development, probably no dialogue. My discomfort with getting up close and personal with people extends from my photography (and life) into my ideas about film. My potential films, that is; I love other people's films over a wide spectrum. But I'd probably just film landscapes, moods, or abstracts and use them as a video backdrop to music. Whether music video or stage projection.
This idea certainly flavored the clips I chose to view:
Another car rig drive reminiscent of Lost Highway, especially with the Rammstein soundtrack. Great feel. Love this but I'd be nervous about my camera.
NIN - Burn from onstage in Melbourne. Outside of poor reactions to strobes that could just as likely be attributed to the fps translation, it's beautiful.
A shot up at the clouds and moon that definitely evokes a mood, especially full screen.
A macro video in the tidepools that makes me happy.
A time lapse in Antarctica that could have been taken with a still camera, but is beautiful.
A "filmish" look of someone playing guitar -- in which grain is not all bad, and is in fact very stylistically MTV-esque.
A more indie film drive, down the PCH.
Some great shots of Tokyo intercut with some inexplicable reoccuring clips of food conveyor belts.
The station -- film it, slow it down (no overcranking here).
The end of the world, an actual place in Norway, which starts beautifully.
Köln at night. Hm, this is the third video of his I like.
Orlando, practically a hotel commercial =)
Sledding, with speed variations and Portishead. I get so caught up in the song I almost don't notice when the imagery feel changes.
Seattle in the snow, where the song is just so right.
Hm, maybe I just want to travel ;-)
I haven't even seen half of the videos there! ... I don't expect to be good at this immediately, or ever, necessarily. I just think it'll be fun.
