My third film project for Video 1 class at UPenn: The Effects Project.
We were told to play around with effects and use them to create a short film in whatever format we chose, whether it was a music video or a short narrative.
My Vision: Using archival footage of Chairman Mao and his adoring/worshipping people to one of my favorite pieces of music (The Smiths' This Charming Man) to create a soothing '70s-feeling music video/ comedy.
The Piece of Music: This Charming Man - Stars (a Smiths' cover)
The Result: Situationist/Punk-inspired détournement.
