My Lunarin Remix #2: “Time of Apollo 2010”

[First blogged at Starfish Stories :: The Band]

My second Lunarin remix, titled “Time of Apollo 2010”. With a music video thrown in!

This music video mash-up is dedicated to the men and women of the Apollo Program (1963 – 1972).

I decided to make the music video as an afterthought, after I completed my 2nd remix (btw, the first remix, here).

Here’s the remixed track, posted to soundcloud:

In that remix, I extracted part of the spoken audio from the 1975 NASA documentary, “Time of Apollo”. Then I decided to make a music video with the NASA documentary footage.

And thanks again to Lunarin, for making the music remix possible. They have compiled the submissions of their remixes into a digital album titled, “The Void: A collection of remixes of Lunarin’s ‘The Sky (Algiers)“. Be sure to check that out.


Rat-racing Hamsters

I took this video when I passed by a pet store. Noticed these particularly frisky hamsters that kept piling themselves onto the wheel. My wife and I found them hilarious!

After the song was completed, I decided to see if I could piece together a music video. Here’s the result:

Details over at SeaStars 2007. Thanks to Jeremy for giving me the chance to showcase the video at the Songcraft mini-concert.

Machinima: Building my first guitar in Second Life

Kevin produced this video, while I showed him how I constructed a guitar in Second Life. The background music was from this song that I composed earlier.

He’s blogged about it here, and here’s my post at Rambling Librarian.

Creative advertisment

There are quite a lot of artistic and creative ideas in modern advertising, like this TV ad by a UK telecoms company.

A simple idea that’s beautifully executed. They choreographed and filmed a bunch of people from a plan-view (i.e. top down), with the people (dressed in plain colours) standing up, linking arms and moving in sync where needed. I especially like how they simulated movements of the wheels of the baby-pram (3rd scene), and the ball being thrown (4th scene).
