Song Production Information
The genre is BREAKCORE, but the song really wants to be more like old school breakbeats. It's fast, but I was hoping to pull off the feeling like when an experienced F1 driver thinks the high speeds he's going at are slow. I wonder if I overdid it with the speed - this song is a confirmation that BPM and the feeling of how fast the song is aren't always directly related.
So, even if you're playing it slowly, I hope you'll pick up the pace.
Video Production Information
A CALF song. This time again it's tasteful and cool.
It's like platforms and stone paved streets made out of foreign materials.
CALF songs always have a sort of Japanese feel to them, yeah?
Is it supposed to be classical? Directional? No matter what, I wanted to try to make the movie match up in feeling.
This time around I tried to think more like a VJ, letting my skils as a designer start to unfold even before the song begins. If you've got a song that fits with the idea of using lots of stock short clips, VJ-style, you pick a choice image from among the stock footage to build your video around. That's how I made this movie.
