VO's are really not my thing, but still... wanted to give this thing a shot...
Another character that i thought i would drop off into the hitrecord carehome.
I tried to recreate an aged pilot. He used to sale the skys but is now resigned to the ground. Drawn with a vacant look on his face. He's loosing what was once his and his alone, memories. The skys he once called 'home' and clouds he once called 'friend', are leaving him for greener pastures.
a sort of stream of consciousness-y thing ive been writing lately. i saw this timelapse vid today by bluebudgie and was really inspired to experiment with it. i understand how this might be seen as political or preachy or offensive.. but i honestly dont mean to be any of those things. it is directed at me more than anyone else. there's a lot of literary reference nod's in the text.
sub-point: the track is an instrumental version of everything is on fire
Rarely has a RECord struck me as emotionally as stargirl1013's "Starlight Drive-In" vignette. The camerawork was raw and seemed like such a personal perspective of what remained of a local movie drive-in she had just discovered.
Her reflections were so striking to me and she had matched her voice over with the perfect companion in amferraro's "careless young." Normally in a remix containing voice over I may ask for the track separate, but I was able to trim and rearrange it with the music in tact. In a way it preserved the precious timing of the original.
Drive-in footage was tough to come by but I think the visual emphasis in the cutaways is more about the people themselves that used to sit in their cars watching movies together rather than grandiose cinematography of the drive-in experience. Besides, stargirl1013's piece was really about what remains of what once was.
I love drive-ins, and I'm glad that some are still around. I hope more will be built for future generations.
