Fashion is Danger
Star Trek: The Original Series
I'm not a dance party kind of girl, so I surprised myself a little this year by creating a premieres vid for Club Vivid. I was a little hesitant about the idea but when I got the green light from Ian on it, I plunged ahead. I have to say, it was a lot of fun to do. The idea was sparked by an article on io9 (I think) about the costumes from the original series. I started rewatching the series soon after that and decided it was a fantastic idea for a vid.

Flight of the Conchords are always a great band to mine for cracky, funny vids and this song was fantastic for the job. Most fun I've had making a vid in ages.

Stuff is Way
Memento
When I say that making this vid surprised me, I mean, that I had absolutely no intention of ever making a vid for Memento. In fact, I had only ever seen the movie once, in a theater when it was first released in 2000.

Usually when the germ of a vid idea plants itself in my head, it starts by watching the source. Instead, this time it started with the song. I was listening to the latest album by They Might be Giants and the first time I heard this quirky, disjointed song I immediately thought of this quirky, disjointed movie.

What I was trying to find was the sense of how confusing life is to Leonard. Adding the static at the beginning clips is meant to show the static of his mind every time he finds himself awake with no memory of where he is or what he's done to get there. A life that's constantly being rebooted.
