Here it is: Hotel California the Music Video

call this a haunting interpretation of the classic rock song Hotel California. Basically set inside an empty high school at night, following a character as he experiences tempation and entrapment. Once he realizes he has made the wrong choices, he tries to escape this evil atmosphere, but finds it is too late.


There's a real story behind this video, so if want to 'get it' you have to watch the whole thing.

any comments mean so much so myself and our crew, and would be really appreciated.

Trim more

Hi Alec, IMHO this needs at least 1/3 trimmed off of it. I think you do a great job with the story beats when the plot turns, but in between is too long and it loses its momentum. For example, in the opening robbery sequence, the music kills the tension that scene should have. The story starts with the gun shot. All that banter is too long. I'd get rid of the music, find something more like one of those dramatic drones to lay behind it, and greatly shorten that scene. Shorten the car ride. Shorten the ending. Boom boom boom. Move right through it faster and it will carry so much more momentum. I'll let others comment on the look, I'm more of a writer.

Hey Jeff,

Thanks for watching and offering your thoughts. This is funny because the first thing I usually hear from people is "I liked the pace, it's much faster." But that could also be because much of my earlier work is so much slower. I understand your point with regard to the carry out scene. I guess I was actually trying to lighten it up a bit. I like the contrasting tones created by the music and the subject matter, or the dialogue and what is happening in the story. I do appreciate hearing your comments, it really helps me gauge how well it works with a diverse audience.

Alec

Disgruntled Catholic? :P

Set design was neat - mixed with the cutting it felt very much along the lines of Legend. You gotta do somethinig about those titles though............

News Satire

www.aggieblvd.net/videos/WildFire.wmv

A video I made for my video class. We were suppose to make a news package and I absolutely hate doing news, so I decided to make a satire of a slow news day (where ordinary stories get blown out of proportion in order to make the news).

Enjoy.

Scripted Work - a short DVX100 film

From today our short new movie Scripted Work is available online for watching (the trailer has been shown before on this forum). It's an 18 minutes surrealistic drama project, partly based on a story of the Dutch writer Lodewijk Wiener.

Synopsis:
A writer roams around a library. Hes sampling the atmosphere for a story that unfolds there. He meets a young woman who confronts him with her obsession. Before he knows it, he loses his grip on reality.

Technical:
It's shot with the DVX100 (PAL) and edited with Vegas 6. The download version is a 160 MB Quicktime 6 file. The language is Dutch, but the film contains English subtitles.

Download and watch the film:

Please feel free to share your comments on this film, many thanks.
