Memory Tree

So after looking at some inspiration for our next film, I thought I would check out something that is contrastingly different to the ones I've already seen. I came across the video below and there are major differences to the ones I have already comes across.

It's quite interesting to see what makes things different from one another. With this video even with a similar subject with the scenery and the model, the way it has been edited and the music on top of it drastically changes the mood of the whole piece. With the short clips and the sudden cuts between them, it gives the piece a powerful feel to it, this is also emphasised by the music and the colour grading of each shot. The timing of the music is essential as each beat is met with a cut to the next shot - we will have to bear this in mind when it comes to adding music to each of our films. Without the right track it can completely throw the whole meaning and feel of the film off.

Even though it doesn't give off a calm and tranquil atmosphere, the shots themselves are still really attractive. They have been composed really well and put together in a way that makes them work consecutively.
