Getting You Into The Creepy Mood
I suppose all those times I dragged my son to cemeteries to photograph late at night (getting us locked in one time) must have affected his art. He's an intermedia major (with hopes of working in animation or gaming) in his junior year of college and made this short film by an interesting technique. He took a camcorder and put it up against the eyepiece of an old VHS camera as it played this old home movie of him on his first trick-or-treating adventure (yes, I dressed him as a lamb--shame on me. You can tell, he didn't like the hat at all--afraid that when I answered the door, I wouldn't know him). He set this short film to a Nine Inch Nails song. The effect is very weird. He wanted it to represent the quality of memories and how dream-like they can be. It definitely does that. Hope you enjoy it. Click on this to see it.
