school assignment: create a title sequence/trailer for the Northwest Film Forum's presentation of Crispin Glover's "It is Fine! Everything is Fine." film. Music by Timothy Mendonsa. Filming/editing by Kemeya Harper.

I had this crazy idea that filming things melt might be cool for this project, so I bought a pack of synthetic braiding hair, and with a pile of printouts on transparency film, I went to town with my embossing heat gun. The hair melted so wonderfully (and fast) - and it didn't stink at all. The transparencies took a lot more time to start melting, but once I got it going, it rumpled up pretty nice. The drippy goodness at the very end is just watered down acrylic paint.

In post-production, I sped up the film by 2-300% and tried to give it a choppy look, to add to the feeling of degradation. If I were to redo it, I might exaggerate the choppiness a bit more. Then, I played around with the color and contrast to get a stark, drastic look. I think it turned out ok!

The music really makes it - I worked with Tim, who did an amazing job! All I told him was that I wanted a minimal sound with maybe some strings and inaudible whispering. Then I sent him the url for Crispin Glover's website and let him loose. Bravo!
