This is a experimental video based/inspired by David Lynch's "Distorted Nudes" book. The video is/was part of an ongoing project in my Design for Media class at CCAD.
The video itself focuses on the subject matter of dreams and nightmares and the distortion of that reality and our perceptions during it; how during the strangeness of a dream or during the terror of a nightmare one is utterly and essentially nude and vulnerable to the situation and the experience. This is much like how one is literally and essentially nude and vulnerable sexually.
Thus, I chose to display images and visuals that were abstract in nature but also in a way nightmarish, and sexual at the same time. I wanted something that was beautiful, strange, scary, nightmarish, and sensual all at the same time...
This is what I got...
(Also as a side note, this project was for me what "Distorted Nudes" was for David Lynch, it allowed me to experiment with and learn Final Cut Pro more proficiently.
Also, the music in the video is a variety of different sounds and tracks made by me on Soundtrack Pro, Aviary, and mixed with two David Lynch songs, and with part of a Hex Vessel song mixed in reverse.
All this thrown and mixed together is what makes the audio; much like how the footage is all thrown together and carefully pieced and overlayed to create a visual of distortion and abstract imagery.)
