VJ Video Retrospective - FLDTV0005
This is the 2nd part of the breaker beats video.

I used to try and get as many decks as possible from the footage I cut. This was good from the point of view of just starting out and trying to build a library of footage that could handle gigs lasting 6-12 hours.
I was determined from the start to try and not repeat the same footage within a gig (the same way a DJ wouldn’t want to drop the same track twice).

This isn’t easy to achieve for 2 reasons -
1) VJ set lengths are typically way longer than DJ set lengths.
2) I like to stay in the moment and manipulate everything with the music. I’m manually switching clips around every 8 beats and constantly scratching, bouncing and flipping the footage with the music.

However, over time as I managed to generate more footage than I could play in even an all night 12 hour gig, I started to shift focus towards quality over quantity. Limiting myself to just one deck of 40 clips per subject, became my way of boiling down to only the best stuff (I frequently start out by creating 100+ clips in AfterEffects).

Anyway...B-Boys....part 2.
