Music - "Dreaming of Flying" by Celestial Aeon Project
I purchased the music license from:
jamendo.com/en/track/25250?mailhash=5c712a2396387d354c1350ca901966e1

The original film footage used in this video is from some old film shorts called "Birds of Prey" and "Song Birds as Neighbors" from the Prelinger Collection (Public Domain video) I also added my own video footage the overlapping tree branches that I shot with a Canon 7D. I purposely gave the old film a dark, night/twilight feel to enhance the feeling of dreaming.

I added the outline and blur effects in Adobe After Effects CS4 and then did more color correction and added the tree branches videos in Adobe Premiere Pro CS4. The music "Dreaming of Flying" by Celestial Aeon Project was perfect for the dark, dreamy atmosphere created by the effects, and the title of the song fit perfectly with the imagery in the video. The video brings attention to the spontaneous, beautiful movements and varied forms of birds in nature.
