Today’s video remix is brought to you by George Hrab, his song “The Assumption” and my ability to fill up little bits of free time with video projects … full story after the break.
The non-flash version of the video is also available for download (Apple iPod/M4V).
George Hrab is a fellow drummer & podcaster … well, I should say fellow podcaster and kick-ass drummer, guitarist and singer (I’m not even close when it comes to musical talent). I’ve become a fan of George’s music since hearing him on a few podcasts and live at Dragon*Con 2007.
So George did this cool video for his song “The Assumption” …
… it’s a very low-tech way to get nine of him on the screen at the same time. I thought it was inventive and really fit the theme of the song. But I also had an image in my head of the way I would have edited it (something that happens when you’ve done way too much video work). It’s been a while since I did a music video that didn’t involve zombies, so it seemed like a good idea at the time.
So I contacted George, got the original files he used to make the video, and spent little bits of free time playing with ideas when I had a free moment. George is happy with the result, so I decided to post it here because it just doesn’t fit anywhere else in my video world. I consider it a “remix” rather than a replacement for the original video, and the original video’s low-tech approach still appeals to me.
