In the pale light of midnight I tried to take flight
But my wings were too weak and the stars were too bright
So I waited a week til the winter winds b...
Little song I wrote and RECorded this morning-after-xmas. It's a genuine question, I still don't know...
I was trying to precisely match to the computer-generated recitation from wirrow's original short film. Intended to be combined with many (the more the merrier) other voices doing the same thing. Wanna do one?
GIMMIE THE BEEF
This is really just a sketch of what it could be! I like the idea of taking real world images and people and putting them into it. The peice itself almost feels like building up an army of soldiers of hope. Please feel free to re-edit and/or film some stuff for it! :D I really like dreamy type stuff. That would work well for this! So if you are good with effects or coolio stuff like that, it would all help climax.
Here is the 2.1 version with much more narrative! http://hitrecord.org/records/600521
And here is 2.2 versioned with more footages! http://hitrecord.org/records/620712
Earlier today, Cacheth made an awesome animation of mirtle's drawing, for Dina and RegularJoe's tiny story. She asked if someone could add Pamagotchi's reading - maybe it would fit better with the girl - and so I did this.
The music is a wonderful "Virgin-Suicide-y" little piece by JeffPeff, I absolutely love it and thought it would fit well with the atmosphere (and the spaceship !).
I really am a beginner at editing things (I still use iMovie you know) (haha), so it's not perfect but I'm kind of happy with it. What do you think ?? :)
Here is a mix of the live performance of "Patterns & Prayers" at the "Hit RECord on Halloween" show in New York City.
The spoken word audio on this version was taken directly from the Dr. Gory file. I just added a little reverb to it. There are some parts where the sound maxes out slightly and creates slight distortion. Once the ProTools files come out I can work them into this cut and upload an alternative sound version.
Some additional color correcting needs to be done as well as some mastering on the grain effects, so this is still very much a work-in-progress. Some video clips differ too much in overall quality so I may switch a few shots here and there to keep the look more consistent.
Removing the "cut the music" part during the walk to the podium is a possibility as well. I think it disrupts the flow and mood slightly (even if it was a part of the live performance in a sense.)
Also, this is the LOW-RES version. The high-resolution version exceeds 400mb.
A Story in Wishes
When I made the request for 11/11/11 wishes, I genuinely thought I would have a handful of responses to play around with in the short time I had available. To my utter delight, nearly 90 responses later, I have cut together what I hope is a fitting tribute to the words and wishes of a varied and talented group of HitREcorders.
In the end, the success was my downfall: I simply didn't have enough time to fully carry out the idea I had in the short space of time. But the more I edited the wish videos, the more I realised that in fact the videos speak for themselves: they speak of hope, courage, remembrance, sadness, fear, happiness, determination. My little collage, my little fingerprint in bringing you all together in a single picture became an after thought.
To everyone who contributed, my very deepest thanks. Your courage and inspiration were truly wonderful to work with.
My 11/11 wish is for this community to keep spreading it's wings, and to forever endeavour to create, achieve and inspire.
I hope that, even in some small measure, all your wishes come true <3
PS: on a lighter note, I hope no one is creeped out by my red stained hands [paint] and the fact that I have lots of your faces on a wall gathered round a bright red circle! <3
PPS: currently trying to resource LOTS of names, some of whom sent videos by email and I wasn't sure of their HitREcord name. If you sent me a video and don't see a resource, please let me know! I used every single one I received :D <3
I had some problems with compressing files, so this one is only 5 min long. I didn't want to upload a mute video, that's why there's music. I'll upload 10 min video in Zip, a bit later.
It's not great, this image went through several changes over the week, but here it is.
Happy 11/11/11. <3
