Her was one of the first movies I got to see this year, and has remained one of my favorites so far. It’s received several Oscar nominations including best original song for The Moon Song, sung by Scarlett Johansson in the film and Karen O in the trailer.
Though I’m not nearly as musically gifted as them, I wanted to share my attempt at covering the Academy Award nominated song.
For our second assignment in Location Shooting For The Edit, we had to take a “contentless scene” from our book and put together a lined script, shot list, storyboards, and develop the characters.
My friend, Raul came over Wednesday evening when it snowed, and suggested that we should take advantage of the atmosphere and shoot something.
After doing all of that work for this assignment I figured we might as well make something more out of it.
So we did.

After filming in the snow, greatly underestimating how freezing cold it would be, Raul suggested that I make a short music track for the video, which we uploaded to Soundcloud for anyone to download and use in film/video projects.
It was interesting to have to go through all of the planning and details of preproduction for such a short piece of material, and kind of eye-opening to how helpful all of it really is when it comes time to actually film something.
Watch Adieu - a music video about death featuring hand drawn animation from 22 hitRECord artists. You can catch it on @HITRECORDonTV’s episode RE: THE OTHER SIDE this Saturday @ 10e/7p on @pivot_tv
1,896 hand-drawn illustrations went into animating this music video. It’s one of my favorites of the entire season..
I respect hand-drawn animation so much. It may not be as smooth and clear as other methods, but it feels so much more alive… which is ironic for a music video about death.
I highly recommend taking the time to watch this interview. It’s just over half an hour and David O. Russell shares some fantastic insights on filmmaking and just life in general.
What I took away from this interview most is that there will be periods of our lives and in our careers where we are lost at sea, and it’s difficult to find land until we find our voice and pursue our passions.
I’ve always enjoyed it when companies have some fun with their logos.
This is a cool look at the making of some Adobe Logo Remixes.
