I think, you guys can appreciate this idea:
Take some archival footage from the commons or your national archives and add your own creative ideas to it. You can change film speed, add cool music to it, add voice over, swing-tilt (blurred edges), enhance colors or contrast, speed the film up into time-lapse or do a mash up of various historical vids to some wicked music. The idea is simply to add your own personal creative flare to historical footage which you think would make it have a different kind of appeal without loosing the importance and value of the footage itself...rather, adding to it. No other rules; can be as long as you like.
Just trying to get a few things going here to perk some interest and give you guys some (hopefully) cool challenges. I see such awesome footage here and I really appreciate everything you guys do. This is just a way of trying to engage you more (personally and collectively) because Leakers are just way too cool. I know Leakers have well-rounded perspectives of the world so challenges like this should cull some really wicked responses. I hope to see some cool archival sequences. Peace everyone. -Gene.
PS: the footage here is about Apollo 11 with voice overs of Carl Sagan and others taken from another archival video and layed onto the track. I added some ambient sound, time--lapsed the entire video, brightened the colors and added spot-light FX and some swing-tilt (blurred edges). Hope yo
