Turns out it's really easy. Has else on here made a film? Post your links below, if you have.
(off to watch it now)
I don't get sound at work.
but it's not essential to the experience
That was great! :D
on a Samoan rugby team (amateur). He probably won't but I'd love it if he did.
as visuals for a band, you should pimp yourself out in this respect 'budget
how do i go about it?
but if you know any bands you think aesthetically this would work with you could get in touch showing them samples of your work and see if they're keen?
how you'd monetise it might be quite difficult, i.e. if you charge them a one off payment or get in tow with them and get paid based on gigs they use them at?
i might have to make more than one thing to showcase
i'd like to do that tho - would be a good job to have
would be a basic site and you could start hawking your stuff round bands?
i am sooooooooooooo bad at self promotion
but looks a bit like you just switched to video mode on your digital camera when you were on holiday, is that a film?
I made this one. Ages ago. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9hMMnVuNpGk
I'm sure it would be brilliant and something definitely to be shared if you have...
makes me a little sad.
I highly recommend Taiwan, by the way. I had a great time.
but i have no cause to go there. yet.
maybe Bodies by Drowning Pool
that song should be on every video on there
Used windows movie maker to put on an intro, did some interesting wipes to splice together the positional changes, did a credits bit putting us both in starring roles but put her as starring holes. Burnt in on dvd and gave it her as a present.
really hope this is true and you included a "you have been watching" bit whereby you both took a bow to canned applause
That's a great idea, will do it next time. Really enjoyed the editting, gonna start putting "a Jackie Treehorn Production" at the end of them too.
Rule 1 = Pics or GTFO
So we can put it online and retain our anonimity. (her idea)
but I can't post it without giving away my identity
We made a film!
that's the greatest film of someone else's grandma tapdancing that i've ever seen
i would've said its unwatchable without it!
the bit where they were SPOLIER ALEERT playing Evanescence should've been longer though
that's new year aye? It can't be like that all the time
I made two films and they're on vimeo cos that's the site for serious filmmakers
https://vimeo.com/8632692 that one has Sunderland and snow in it
https://vimeo.com/8634962 Roskilde 2008. By linking to this one I out myself as the twat who holds his camera up during the MBV 'holocaust' bit
Yes, it was Chinese new year. And yeah that bar band were great. I'll make sure the whole of Bring Me To Life makes it onto the director's cut DVD. At one point they did a cover of Jambalaya by Hank Williams and I was sitting there going "is this really happening"
I really like both of those videos, especially the cellist in the Roskilde one. I was a bit concerned about the Nazi salutes during the MBV section though, especially since the Danes are apparently really bad for that kind of thing. I hope nobody at Collapse Board sees this footage.
yeah I hadn't noticed the nazi salutes. Gonna have to blog about that.
I bet Bring Me To Life really took off when that key change happened towards the end of the song
The focusing makes it look like a model village.
It's the soundtrack that makes it. The scene kicks off properly at ~1:15. The relaunch at ~2:00 is sublime. :-)
congas in general always look so awkward. Like most people are just trying to stop it from breaking up and don't look like they're actually having any fun
Add in the swirling, spiralling organ version (that was an earworm for days afterwards) for a whole extra dose of farce. Throw in a drunken eccentric uncle (or two). Then there's the 'party vibe in a downbeat village hall' juxtaposition. Topped off with the solid gold classic move of taking it outside and through the kitchen etc. Perfection.
(Also, this was a 60th wedding anniversary, and iirc the last time I saw my grandad, so there's a sentimental layer to it for me, beyond the general sillyness).
The background suggests I'd been taking Beecham's cold medicine and drinking beer.
