This is the b&w version of the Pax & Pry video. I was handed the edit and asked to apply the text of the lyrics to the video and basically given free reign. I choose to really connect the lyrics to Pax by tracking his hands and body and applying the text. Sounds simple eh? But with the softness of the image due to the 35mm adapter I ended up roto tracking a large portion of it, hours of it… But it’s meditative and I enjoyed the process. I love the organic feel of the movement and I applied motion blur to match the softness of the video image.
It was shot on Panasonic’s HVX200 using P2 workflow with Nikon lenses and the Redrock Micro 35MM adapter.
