Final project for ARTD 379. We were instructed to shoot two videos, one focusing on a subject matter we are resistant to, and the other focusing on something that appeals to us. I combined them into one. American television, advertisement, social constructs, and the general idea of relaxation/free time is juxtaposed with wilderness, the cold night air, and skateboarding - one of the the few escapes, one of the few constants.
Title images taken from Corey Smith's "Digital Detritus" (vimeo.com/31228083)
Audio: "Trapped In A Burning House" by Shlohmo, edited for the film.
No infringement intended, no profits made.
I took pieces from projects by artists that inspire me.
Fuck the free world.
Music video I shot, edited, and produced with the direction of the band.
