Hi, well, the title could have been better. Anyway, I tried, the other day, filming *after* choosing the music and letting the music find the shots and places for me. And I did it again yesterday. The end result ended up being fairly different than what I originally had in mind, aesthetically, but I believe the atmosphere is here. Anyway, there's still tons of polishing until I can get the kind of result that I'd like but I feel this short vid may mark a milestone in my progress towards something still "artsy" but more narrative and meaningful.
anyway, let me know what you think. The original idea, coming from the music, was to film city streets but with the common element of a or several lightbulbs or at least light sources. This is intended to be a promotional video for a friend of mine who just started his yoyo brand named "diamont noir", all the products will have names related to lights or stars, this one being the celestial ampoule, "ampoule" being french for "light bulb", hence the light sources throughout the video. technically speaking, the video also has to show the main features of the products which are the balanced set of counterweights (the clear little dicy things attached to the end of the yoyo string), the small pouch for carrying it around, as well as the brightness and intensity of the coloring and the general shape and size of the yoyo.
