When looking through the British council film archive I had many ideas for mash ups and parodies that would be funny and interesting for me to make and for people to watch.
One of my favourite films on the archive is ‘These Children are safe’ I enjoy this film as its one of very few that mentions the war. It shows the evacuation of children from the cities to the countryside and is a really sweet and interesting short film that is definitely worth the watch if you have a spare 20 minutes.
My main inspiration behind this video was the differences between culture then and now. I also showed the differences between children and students. The music and images I then swapped over from the videos which made a funny comparison between the two. I’m happy with how well the children dancing went with the house music that I placed over the top.
For the comparison video I used some footage I took at a RatBoy concert of people moshing and dancing which I thought would be funny to go alongside the audio of the children singing. I’m really happy with how this video turned out and if I had more time would have created more comparison/mashup videos from other sections of the ‘These children are safe’ film. Maybe for my final #VFL18 project a series of these types of videos would be a good idea?
