Found Footage Essay

Somehow, I found the digital project a lot more difficult that the project we did in class with actual film. In class we were blindly putting together clips we had never seen and did not know what the sound was like. That made the final product a lot more interesting to watch. The digital project was more stressful because the placement of each clip and soundbyte was a lot more deliberate and there was a bit more pressure to have the sequence make sense. My video was not very argumentative—aside from the quotes that differentiated records from CDs—and presented an object that we do not really interact with anymore unless it is for nostalgia reasons. The video itself also felt nostalgic: the happy, relaxed reactions of those listening to records and even the more educational aspects of the video that depicted how they are made.
