NEW IN NOVEMBER - VID #01
POWER’S “CAN YOU SAVE ME” + CUL-DE-SAC (1966)

Okay, so I’m jumping in on this New in November thing. A new video every weekday for the month of November. I’ve watched Justin do this in the past and always find myself a little jealous. No more. Output, output. I feel like I’ve been making a lot of the same sorts of videos lately. Channel 101 comedy episode. Break branded commercial. Community BTS. I’m going to set my sights on trying different stuff.

Today I’m trying out the Movie Clips Montage Set To Song genre. Why not. I’ve been trying to make a legit music video for over a year and I keep missing the bus. POWER is a band who have been riding their own output challenge, 52 songs in 52 weeks, and they haven’t been getting the attention they deserve. I imagine a lot of these November videos will be celebrating music in some way. POWER uses a lot of mirror effects for their artwork on each song, so I felt it made sense to imitate that a bit. I’m happy with how it turned out.

I have a vague notion of the stuff I’m going to try to make this week, but everything else is a mystery and that’s what’s exciting. When your deadline and the time you have to wait for inspiration smash into each other and you have to pick at the very first itch.
