I don't know if these records will help you to understand who I am (because I think it's not so obvious...), but they're a good reflection of my works (on Hitrecord or elsewhere) and the topics/things/themes I'm interested in...There are not a lot of records, I can't upload new stuff as much as I would like, but I will update this as much as I can :)
Am I crazy?
A music video for the awesome 'I Have No Cats' song.
Update (11.6.11): the second costume in this video was my costume for Halloween this year. I should have tried something else... it wasn't very practical when I wanted to drink or eat something...
I wanted to apologize for not being able to make re-recs albums for the next few weeks (I'm on the move). I tried to make it up to all my readers by making this video (last week) with some records I would have re-recommended:
- "I Have No Cats": songs and collaboration
- the "hitRECord Mugshots" collaboration (and records)
- Call-In Song Requests: there are fantastic contributions!
- K-REC Stingers and the hitRECord 'Radio'
I also wanted to talk about the lip-syncing technique: I think it's not used enough for music videos in general and I would like to see how you would use it...
ok my example/ video is not the best one, but it really was just for fun. I couldn't shoot with some friends so I had to do it myself (and I'm not an actress as you can see hahaha) but for once, I wanted to show you what I had in mind and not write some suggestions or ideas for a video remix...
I didn't have much time for the editing but I will re-work on it when I'll be back. So, it's a work in progress as I'm still not completely satisfied with it.
Thanks again to tonguecutsparrow for the song and lyrics. I wouldn't have been able to make this video without the lyrics! ;)
REM: Sorry, there are 2 misprints in the image: I forgot to add a 's' at the end of 'doctor' and 'picture': they're both plural in Alpal's Tiny Story. I'll fix it for the next version.
This is a first draft of a visual interpretation of Alpal’s great and striking Tiny Story.
Thanks to MIKA, her skeleton is simply perfect for the story (I think). I also have some other ideas to develop the design but I couldn’t find on the website the appropriate pose of a girl’s model/person.
So, I would have a small request: could anyone upload a/some picture(s) of girl(s) with the skeleton’s pose? Don’t worry, don’t be shy, we probably won’t see/recognize you/the girl. I still don’t know if the model will appear as a shadow behind the skeleton, or if I let the original picture… I don’t really want to choose now actually, I prefer to try directly in Photoshop. Please, I would prefer a color photo, non Black And White (I would like to have the choice to keep the colors or not...).
And I was also thinking about developing this picture idea into a tiny video with a succession of different female models/bodies behind the skeleton… that’s just a rough idea, so I’m really looking forward to your ideas!
I’m also waiting your suggestions for the image:
- which font to use, I just used an Old Typewriter font, but I’m not completely satisfied with it;
- any other elements to add to the image?
- any ideas about the text’s arrangement?
- What about the color(s)?
I really like the records of this collaboration. And I tried to create a poster for the "video theme" after the one about music (by Marke) and the other one about photography (by alexblackwelder). I tried as much as possible to keep the same style than the first records, even if I think I didn't really succeed... I was in a quandary (that's a strange feeling to find some words in a dictionary which not seem to be true, or simply weird...but we can't do anything else than to trust the dictionary...) about the camera. I thought first to take a picture of my digital camera but I didn't have enough light to do it, so I've chosen a Super8 and I prefer actually this model because it seems more stylish in a way... What do you think? it's to be remix anyway :-) There is maybe a problem of size of the picture... I wasn't sure but I can adjust it easily if it's too small.
Sorry I didn't work on a logo... I tried! But I think I need some guidelines because there are too many possibilities...
After a sneak peak posted on Tumblr yesterday, here's a 'final' (I don't like this word) version of the poster for the hART House to put hypothetically or theoretically on the hall-door (that's just a theorical idea, I didn't think about a possible use when I worked on it).
Sorry (again), the text is still in French, I prefer to let an English native speaker to find the perfect text...Here's a (bad) English translation to give an idea of what I had in mind (I know it's ridiculous...):
Chevaliers de l’Imagination/ Knights of the Imagination,
Fiers héritiers de Don Quichotte/ Proud Heirs of Don Quixote,
Défenseurs de la Répétition/ Defenders of Repetition,
Pourvoyeurs de la Flamme inspiratrice/ Purveyors of the Inspirational Fire/Flame,
Voyageurs, visiteurs, invités/ Travellers/Adventurers, visitors*, guests*,
Amis de la créativité/ Friends of Creativity
Soyez les Bienvenus./ Welcome.
Et dans cette humble demeure/ And, in this modest home/residence,
N’oubliez pas votre enregistreur/ Don’t forget your HitRECorder.
*in French visiteur and invité don’t have the same meaning: the first one is not necessarily invited, the second one comes because he/she was invited…
I wanted to make something for the hART House, even if I'm not going to live there. I love this project.
I'd like to thank everyone for their records. Many records I selected weren't used but it's always a 'luxurious pleasure' to have so many choices.
If you don't see/find your resourced record in the picture, trust me, I really used it, but I also used a 'Photoshopping grinder' so your record may not be recognizable anymore :)
There are 2 Cupids, and 2 cherubs: it's not a religious reference, but a reference to Art History (painting).
I may upload a zip file of the PSD file and/or a zip file of a bigger image if anyone is interested.
