A short music video I made for an editing class this past fall semester. Initially I was going to make a mini-news documentary about the current economic crisis. Unfortunately, the footage I captured wasn't as good or useful as I had hoped it would be. Anyway, the use of public domain footage isn't anything new, but I found that depression and Cold War era news reels and shorts captured similar events occurring in today's U.S economy. It's incredibly scary and cool to see history repeating itself.
