INSO15 - Re-Animaniac

video: Maniac
audio: Revocation
link: depositfiles [45.4 MB] youtube
editor: Magix 2.0+ deLuxe
production date: November 2009

This video is without a title because music videos don't have titles other than the song out in the real world. This isn't a compositive art piece or anything like that, just a zero-budget music video for a song that the band probably isn't going to have a pro video done for (I'd think "Anthem of the Betrayed" and "Dismantle The Dictator", at least, would be ahead of it on Relapse's list).

Most of the video is cut out of Maniac, but there are bits from The Ape Man, The Gorilla, and probably most obviously White Zombie. All this stuff is public domain, so I can publish-publish it unless Dave/Anthony/Phil or their representation tell me to eff off and pull it. The music under the end card is a sample from "Alliance and Tyranny" off Revocation's first album, Empire Of The Obscene.

buried by time and dust

INSO15 isn't done yet -- though it will appear in this space after a) getting Youtube'd; b) I PM the link to the band on myspace and get some reaction other than wtfdood this is garbage; and c) both the streaming and HQ links show up on RTTP. In the meantime, though, I happened to run across the following guide to digital video editing:

Digital Video: A Guide for the Fearless

The guides that I had access to when I started editing were about as primitive; I'll see if I've still got any of them around and may append them later. What's interesting is that not only has this guide survived for 13 years online, but large portions of it are still valid even in the age of BluRay, Blender, and After Effects. Some, though, like the stuff on Quicktime compression, are pure lulz for their datedness, and the section on doing your own embeds will probably have some saddos moaning about starry wisdom lost; way of the world.
