Final Project: The Money House

So I managed to finish my small film. It consists of 3 pieces of music all created by me with footage of what takes place in “The Money House”. There is a very vague plot, which is very simple in itself. The end is open for interpretation. This is mainly an exercise in being able to put an image to my music, and I figured what better place to do it then here. The original idea was a little different, where the main character left school on a friday and ended up making his way to the place we see in the video. However, I decided to cut that piece out. This was shot in five seperate occassions.

The party scene was a collaboration between myself and a good friend of mine. He did half of the filming, and I did the editing. The party was also thrown by me solely for the purpose of this project. This was literally the first party ever thrown in the room and it was a major success, so I am very grateful for that. The black border was done on purpose to give the scene an urban feel. The rest was shot and edited all by myself on 4 different days and on two different cameras. I managed to condense about 2 hours of b-roll into two minutes. All in all, it was a challenging experience. I used this Tumblr as a guide to keep my themes in place http://baeazy.tumblr.com/. I realized that although there was no shortage of ideas, actually replicating them in real life proved to be a real challenge. I would’ve loved to have someone with a steady hand and camera skills to help, but my schedule was too random to be able to count on anyone else. With that said….enjoy!
