Some of you may remember the audio pitch I made last term about having my friend who is blind record a day in his life. Well, this is another take on a similar concept, but in this case there is a video dramatization to go along with the real life recordings of John Hull, who became completely blind in the middle of his life. This is a really interesting idea to me, to take real audio recordings and try to make a video to match them.
The way this video is made, it feels very surreal, very dreamy. It feels like I am watching someone’s memories unfold, somewhat hazy and choppy, moving from one scene to the next the way sporadic thoughts sometimes come and go.
I am curious if some of the sounds, such as the sound of the ocean, were really in the recording, or if they were added just for the video. Either way, it makes for some good transitions and intriguing background noise.
