This is a low RES video. I hope the quality is not too bad though
I don’t really remember how this new video started. I think it started when I discovered the ‘When we were kids’ collaboration but I’m not even sure about that. The only thing I know is that few weeks ago came to my mind a video about childhood and the memories we can have from our childhood. Almost instantly, I thought about amferraro’s beautiful song. I diverted this song from its original purpose (for the ‘hevn and urth’ collaboration) because I thought it was a perfect track for this project, it’s the song that made me travel through my memories.
The basic idea of this video is that we are going through the memories of our childhood as if we were leafing through a photo album. I wanted to mix photos and videos together for a while now and I edited them together as if it was a collage made by the owner of the album. It was quite difficult to choose the photos and videos I would use in this video. The result seems unfair because I watched much more records than the ones you can see in the video, and all were great, but I couldn’t use everything if I wanted to follow the rhythm of the music.
I also used some footage from the Public Domain. I wanted to use them only for the score because I couldn’t find enough records on hitRECord (I wanted to add some children’s voices to the music), but I finally used them for the video as well because I found them interesting and striking.
Finally, for all the captions, I tried to respect the original idea of the photo (and the description of the photo by the Hitrecorder) but sometimes I also picked some ideas on other records (like for Stephen’s photo (aka thesherbethead) or Wirrow’s photo) or I imagined a new caption (but still in the vein of the photo). The title of the video comes from a tiny story written by RegularJOE. That’s why, you will find in the resources the records that inspired me all these captions (even if you don’t see literally the records in the video).
And as usual, I hope I didn’t forget to resource any record.
