This is a shorter version of Snacks & Watches: vimeo.com/27086109
This song was originally produced for a student video about the working elderly called The Pages of Life: vimeo.com/10173600
I made this shorter version because I noticed the original song was getting very short viewtimes on YouTube. I suspect that it may have been because the introduction isn't very attractive. The intro was meant to have a
clockwork-like feel to it. It suited the student video, but listeners weren't waiting around to see what would come after that. This verson opens right into the main part of the song.
The video shows Victoria Harbour in Hong Kong, with most of the footage shot from the Star Ferry. This short ferry ride has to be one of the cheapest high quality attractions in the world. If you do decide to visit
Hong Kong, make sure you try it. The footage was shot on two different days, but both were during the summer, when rain, high humidity and prevailing winds combine to get rid of the haze and smog that otherwise envelops the territory.
