I've Got Seoul


My latest attempt at movie making comes out of Korea. As most of you know I've been spending a lot of time there. When visiting the Buddhist temples you always hear a lone monk chanting. I used one as the basic soundtrack to this video. It has a very haunting quality. Seeing as I have spent a lot of time there, this video is packed with my drawings of Korea. I have also captured the vibe of being in Seoul. As usual there is a little comedy thrown in there for good measure. If anyone has a youtube account you can subscribe to my channel by going here. Yu can also friend me on Youtube. One other little tidbit about this video concerns a big mistake I made. When you watch it you will notice there is some high speed trick photography. This happened by accident. The first time I was in Seoul I was filming my ass off. When I got home and looked at it, it was all high speed. I must have hit some button by accident. I was heart broken. It couldn't be fixed. Luckily I went back to Korea and was able to film some more. As I was editing this video I realized that the high speed stuff worked nicely. I love it. If I didn't say anything here, everyone would have though i was some kind of brilliant film maker. Sometimes it pays to embrace accidents.

As I said before, you're improving in this filmmaking stuff. Maybe you could make a living doing this thing.

That was SO cool, and normally I'd never watch seven minutes of anyone else's video! I doubt I'll ever get to that part of the world, but you made me feel as if I got a taste of it. Awesome job, and Happy New Year!

kane said...
