The video is finally complete! Took a lot longer than I expected, but I’m thrilled with the result. But for a few outings to stretch my legs, I’ve done nothing but sit in the edit suite for the past three days, staring into 3 dimensions. The video was created from over 4,000 photographs. Probably something like 150+ After Effects layers. Tons of trouble shooting. Gobs of thinking and rethinking. Hundreds of keyframe adjustments.
I am spent.
As I write this, I nervously await the verdict of the copyright creatures. I left a message for the band’s manager and I combed their facebook page looking for a sign. It seems they encourage fans to reinterpret their music and provide a link for them to upload their youtube videos. I haven’t been this anxious in a long time.
Please let me know what you think.
