Seeing as this is a Multimedia forum, I thought I would share something I created a while ago. (its not particularly cheerful sorry)
This is the first time I have shared this but I think I have found a community that will either “get it” or at least might be able to find some kind of understanding of the mood.
I am a multimedia designer by trade, but this was my first move in to doing something purely for art (and as it turns out as a exorcism of certain demons). This uses Adobe Flash to combine photographs in to video.
This is based around a kind of dark night of the soul I was having, getting lost in work and my masters studies whilst having little or no time for any other pursuits in which I had excelled in former years, such as playing guitar, Aikido, Rally driving and ghost hunting. a time when all pagan and spiritual practices fell by the wayside.
It is supposed to suggest the cyclic and boring nature of an urban lifestyle that due to the common misunderstanding of the meaning of life, has led to materialism and caused a perpetual need to work hard for a pay check that only continues to propagate the need for more "things" to try to fill the empty gap in one’s life.
The music is "Venetian Snares - Öngyilkos Vasárnap"
a remix of the classic "Gloomy Sunday" Billie Holiday.
Needless to say this was made http://virtual.feis.herts.ac.uk/ghosts.swf
