Tai Chi & ManikinAlright, so this is my final video piece for my college career. Basically I made what you see here as an opportunity to further my editing skills for a demo DVD to use when applying for jobs in the future.
Tai Chi - This is an exploration into the concepts of Tai Chi where you are attempting to use the form to find a sense of peace and generally push away all of the world's distractions. The heart beat is what I thought would be Tai Chi's natural music as the swirling/wooshing sounds are the sound of the Earth (that being that the Earth emits frequencies that we cannot hear, the recording is actually a recording of outer space). Everything else is the sound of the world around you which you are attempting to tune out. Another thing with this video is the fact that everything is blurry until the end where things are clearer. Again, this is to represent a change from distraction by the modern world to a state of calm.
Manikin - So this whole thing is really just a cheesy little narrative that I made to attempt the voice over thing as well as to establish more areas of development in editing. There really wasn't much of a concept here except for "little guy in big world" so don't go trying to find some meaning here as its pretty blatant.
