I made a video.
This is my first attempt to make a video like this.
I took my new 60D out to a local carnival the night it arrived at my door from Amazon. I had only owned it for a few hours, and before using it, an iPhone was the most sophisticated camera I had ever used.
So some stuff went wrong, some stuff was out of focus, and I found out when I got there that the plate that holds my camera to my tripod was at home on my camcorder. So some stuff is shaky.
Don’t ask me why my camcorder was on a tripod. Also don’t ask me if it was because I was reenacting the Buffalo Bill dance from Silence of the Lambs. Oh damn it.
But way more stuff went right. I am so happy with how this came out overall. The song is called “A Meaningful Moment through a Meaning(less) Process” by Stars of the Lid, and could not have been a more perfectly titled or moody song. Some very lucky accidents came from the filming and editing, and I really love how well this represents the whole experience for me.
Watch it in HD with headphones if you can.
