My 2nd round entry for the Quickening. We were given the song "No Cars Go" by Arcade Fire. I actually really like the song, but it was very challenging to work with. Cutting the audio, first, was quite difficult. It took me about 3-4 hours just to do that. Next... maintaining and matching the mood of the song required plotting out a story... something I'm not entirely used to doing :P
For artistic influence, I looked to some of my favorite drama editors and especially ones that create complex montage sequences involving overlays. I felt like this song called for this type of editing, and I did my best to meet that expectation.
Time spent: nearly every moment of free time between Sunday and Saturday (6 days). This time I managed to finish my video in five days (despite being much longer and more difficult), which allowed me to give the video one extra day of polish.
Anyway, that's enough writing. I hope this video moves you or is just enjoyable to watch.
