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.

I loved this vid when I we saw it in Premieres, and after watching it two more times, I love it even more! SO SMART! This is the perfect example of how important song choice can be, and your use of the song is spot on. I LOVED IT!!!

This means a lot, thanks for letting me know. I was trying something a bit different for me with this vid and it means a lot that people actually got was I trying to do.
