And sometimes

This video is just something that I wanted to post in relation to our assignment to create something otherworldly. I thought that it's use of repetition and dramatic lighting alone were enough to suggest a sort of reality that is separate from our daily environment. I liked that she was able communicate this without using anything (much) other than the images of various faces and the sounds of voices. The overall effect seemed very organic. I also liked that the simple phrase at the end of the vowel saying, "and sometimes Y, not!" takes on the new meaning of "why not?" as it is repeated to the viewer. It seems to be the core question that this simple video asks.

Indeed, this is very creative. And the lighting is a big part of it. It looks like there is a flashlight or spotlight being run across the faces in many of the clips. Nice piece
