How To Make An Inspiring Music VideoPosted: October 12, 2012
It has occurred to me that videos that are intended to be moving or inspirational follow a formula. Watch any sporting event, any retrospective of a person’s career and you will see the following algebraic formula in action:
m + rv / s = i
In the formula that I am putting forth, m stands for music, rv represents random video, s is slow motion and i is inspiration. So with that, you can see that I am proposing that if you combine music with some random video of people doing stuff, some of which is in slow motion, you get an inspirational music video.
I made a video to test the formula. I used some random film footage and made some of it slow motion. I uploaded the result to YouTube. I grabbed a tune, tacked it on to my work and voilà, inspirational video.
The first time I watched what you’re about to see, I wept. It isn’t every day that I learn that I’m an algebraic and film making whiz. I was elated to know that my formula worked and that my video was so inspiring to me.
I’m sure that you’ll find this the most uplifting two minutes and forty-eight seconds of your life.
Now that you’ve seen it, I’d like your feedback. Be sure to let me know what you think by participating in the poll.
Don’t forget to comment too.
Tell me what my work has inspired you to do. Explain what message about the human condition you are taking away from this. I also want to hear about the scene that moved you the most. Was it the backward bicycle riding? The sandwich? The trombonist getting kicked up to the window?
