Super 8 (part 2)

Posted by admin On May - 17 - 2010 ADD COMMENTS

Amongst the many videos we’ve been hacking and slashing in the past few weeks there was one that quickly became one of our top 2: a short film called Super 8 by Sonja Menting. I’ve contacted Sojna, begging her to let us use her footage, and she was very open about it (of which I am very thankful of). I also found out during our conversations that she will be filming another super 8 film in Beijing this summer – so watch out for that! I will be keeping my eyes on her Vimeo profile just in case…
As much as we loved the film though, after much consideration, we’ve decided upon another concept for the video (the result of which you can see right here). As Sonja pointed out herself, the moped story doesn’t really complement the message of the song, nor vice-versa. The footage montage we’ve used from some amateur home movie from the time of the Great Depression seemed to do a lot better job in this case. Hope you like it! We sure did spend a lot of time on this! 🙂

Afraid Not Scared Video

Sooooo… as I was telling you in the Journal not so long ago, we were having a video mixing-slicing-and-mashing marathon to see what footage we’re going to use for the Afraid Not Scared video. I will continue to tell the story of that adventure in a post in the Mumbajamba Journal soon enough – in the meantime, enjoy:

(btw.: the video is also available on the Video Page of the Indie Folker website as well as on YouTube and Vimeo)
