Wow, nine months went by and I didn't get anywhere. I'm knee deep in masters' shit, but the vids I announced in a previous entry are just postponed.
Anyways, I was bored and finally followed up on a request by a friend of mine, who recorded some nice shots in GTA IV and asked me to cut them into a neat video. So here it is.
What was supposed to be a one-weekend distraction became a two week nightmare with just little sleep, food and relief :)
But it was totally worth it. I am as happy about finally finishing this, as I am with the results.
Special thanks to Katy Rewston, Clementine/meemee-ocean, Heather Meuser, Chris/xenocide666, William Crabtree and David Patterson for their permission to use their artworks/photos and to Zarxrax from amv/org for his fine tutorial and software regarding encoding.
So, what is this video about? I think the title says it all. It’s a collage about various forms of isolation and its roots and consequences.
The main-music is written and performed by Fear Factory. The images are mostly inspired by the above-mentioned artists and redrawn by myself. (see credits at the end of the video for further information)
Now that I know that my videos are being watched more often all over the world than in my home-country of Germany, I decided to extend my website with these „international“ pages where I present my current and past video-editing-projects.
Although there are older posts in here, this is actually the first one. The older ones are just dated to the actual "release"-dates of the videos (for chronology).
From this day forward there won't be these huge gaps between posts anymore, for I spend a lot more time with video-editing by now.
So stay tuned!
This clip claims to be the intro of the animated-version of the movie Machine Man II - Rendesvouz at the Aquadrome, whereas neither the movie nor the animated-version actually exists in any way more than in the heads of a friend of mine and me.
The "movie" is about a guy named Machine Man II, who can morph into a motorcycle and uses this ability to fight evil :))
The footage is taken from GTA:San Andreas and recorded with fraps. The soundtrack is Turbo Lover by Judas Priest. The editing is of medium quality (I also forgot to deinterlace), the captions are mainly inside-jokes and the video becomes a bit boring after a while, if you don't love the song as much as I do, but anyway… I like it :)
Video-editing and Iris-effect done with VirtualDub, composition, transitions and captions done with Windows Movie Maker, startingimage-editing done with Corel Photo Paint, original concept by *drink* and myself.
Let me tell you a little story about greed and desperation, about love and death, about sacrifice and home – accompanied with wonderful ballads by Enter Shikari.
I recommend viewing this one in fullscreen.
