5 Days of Work


  Well I finished my video collage of work.  Having lent my camera to Vashti (sorry you turned out blurry) over the weekend, I ended up just deciding to put together whatever footage I had.  I think I learned several things:

  • Holding a camera steady is hard.
  • Shaky footage looks bad.
  • I feel guilty making people uncomfortable when I point a camera at them.
  • My computer wasn’t as powerful as I thought and was on it’s knees trying to process all the video effects.
The music is the song “Arm Drawing” from the 500 Days of Summer score, hence the title of the video.

    Maybe I should have included credits:


    Sean … himself
    Deborah … herself
    Vashti … herself
    Stapler … itself

    Nice! All you’re missing is the musical bit sung by the guy in the film (“well, well, you, you make my dreams come true”)

    The video has a dream-like quality–could the stapler be a totem? Oh, wait…wrong movie…

    Studying in an empty office building is a bit eerie, perhaps something like a dream within a dream within a dream…

    But yeah I think the song sets most of the mood. The actual audio track of the video is very un-dreamlike (keyboards clicking away, discussions about liabilities, etc.)
