Holiday Video

While I was on holiday recently, I made a short film…

It’s a Super 8 film shot on the island of Syros. The camera is a Canon 318M, and the music is from the film Le Mépris and is composed by Georges Delerue.
The camera’s filter was misbehaving so I’ve colour corrected a bit. The zooming isn’t smooth, which is a shame, and is generally due to sloppy camera work from me. And I’ve used cutting to the sun a bit too much – less is more.
Other than that, I was already imagining which music I’d edit this to while I was out there. And the Super 8 does make you think that this holiday took place 30 or 40 years ago rather than last month.
