Here is the final version of my first film for December, Drift:
As I mentioned in my last post, this video is based on the Situationist idea of the derive, drifting through the city, and a psychogeographic mapping of Manhattan. Enjoy!
As I mentioned before Thanksgiving, I’ll be making two videos for December. In this post, I’ll give you an early look at the first of those videos, “Drift.” I shot most of the film on Saturday and will spend the next week editing it together. Above is a short clip to give you a taste of what it will look like. “Drift” follows a young woman (in this case, my girlfriend Leslie) as she wanders through Manhattan. It is based on the ideas of the Situationist International movement (more on that below). If you can’t tell by the clip, the film takes her through the Lower East Side, Times Square and Central Park.
It’s almost December, and that means I’m almost through my first month of Less Talking, More Shooting. That also means it’s the holiday season and I’m already feeling festive. In fact, I’m in such a giving mood, that I’m going to make not one, but two videos for December! Try to contain your excitement!
Actually, the real reason that I’m making two videos is that I have to for school. In each of my classes, my final project will be a short film relating to a topic that we discussed. Either way, we all benefit!
