Assignment 5: Editing

So we had to edit together archival footage from before 1970 and make a 1-3min. narrative, documentary, animation, or experimental film. I hadn’t really tried an experimental film yet, and decided to give it a shot. I created a minute and a half long video called “Crazy.” I found a really animated narration from a film about learning manners and used it throughout. I was hoping to achieve a montage of things taken out of context and applying the question “but do you think they were crazy?” Because really, we’re all a bit crazy.
A big challenge I faced was narrowing the voice over down to 1-3 minutes. There were a lot of usable bits. Another challenge was finding usable clips from 10 different video sources. I selected every video that started with the letter “J” in the online archive. Not really sure why, just thought it would be interesting and go along with the experimental feel.
