Gosh! - that's rather beautiful, but not in a random
way - it's sensitively & carefully constructed too.
Have you submitted it to the pocket films festival?http://www.festivalpocketfilms.fr/index.php
I'm interested in the music which is nice in a sort of
floaty, undemanding, ambientish way..but presumably
wasn't written for the piece. Did you cut to it? Or
did it seem right afterwards & you added it? Because
the visual side of the video seems like a very
*careful*, *thoughtful* affair, like you've paid quite
a lot of close attention to each short sequence, to
getting the feel right( & to realising, developping
that gorgeous colour; is that straight out of the
phone or did you push it a bit in the editing?) but
then the music rather *imposes* its generalised
melancholic ache on top, almost in spite, of this....
not really a criticism.. more thinking aloud..I'd be
interested to know your thoughts..
