It’s crazy to think about how much music progresses and changes forms as time goes by.
Different styles come with different methods of creating music, different genres are born or reborn with the help of new instruments and new mindsets. To think that my dad grew up in the heat of the 80’s, the peak of the High Energy and European Italo Disco movement in Mexico. And to think I grew up on that very same music because of him. And now I’m witnessing this sort of “revival” and evolution of that very 80’s High Energy/Italo Disco synth wave movement in the form of artists like Kavinsky, Lazerhawk, Perturbator, FM Attack, and more. And now I’m the one showing my dad all this new music that draws it’s roots and inspiration from his beloved favorites. I just think it’s kind of rad that the love for this music has come full circle between my dad and I. It’s one the main reasons I’m so happy I’m finally making my first album with songs that all reflect the music that influenced me since I can remember. I mean, if music can link together two generations of people, what can’t it do you know? It really is a magical thing.
Now that this last video project I worked on is all done and uploaded, I’m so anxious to get back to work. I swear this is the worst cliche but its almost addicting to me now when I’m not actively working on somethin, I keep wanting to wake up every morning and shoot some sick footy
But that’s okay because we have new homework. My next task? Make a badass short film any way we want within the next two and a half months
use extra caution dir. eduardo delgado, lorraine romero, & josh serrano
for film class, we were told to make a >four minute video, using various camera techniques, that took place mostly in a car. and we also had to essentially film it all in one night. this is what became of it.
its spooky (i hope)
i can’t even begin to tell you all of the things that went wrong with this shoot. we had potential actors drop out, car batteries die, equipment become unusable right before shooting, and me having to step in as the lead actor while literally having food poisoning.
even though a lot went wrong and it definitely shows in the video (the graaaaaain, the miiiiiiics), i think in the end it came together to be a nice little class assignment thing. though the whole group did their fair share to contribute in everything, eduardo really did a fantastic job editing what could have been a disaster. also, lorraine (who had to act as well) ended up with probably no less than 15 bruises from this and she deserves a pizza or something
also, a big thanks to maddie ( frenchiethefry ) and eduardo’s friend jennifer for putting up with our shit behind the scenes and helping when literally everybody else was busy doing normal things. OH AND ALSO my mom who is in this as a voice (good job mom)
Starting in the late 1970s, Hiroshi Sugimoto took pictures of cinema interiors and drive-ins with the aim of encapsulating the whole length of a movie in a single shot. He left the camera shutters open throughout the running of a movie and the glowing screen of the cinemas were left as a trace on each take. A somehow uncanny light resonates in the dark cinema halls. At a further glance, this central light ethereally underlines the rich architectural details of the theater interiors. You might want to confront Sugimoto’s work with Michael Wesely’s, a photographer that uses to take photographs featuring 3 years long exposures: read “The passing of time“, (on Socks).
We looked at these in my photography class and I think the idea behind them is really really cool
Also Coming Soon: “Why Josh Can’t Drive: The Movie: The Game” its like Grand Theft Auto except you can’t actually steal a vehicle until you go to the gym for 9 months to have enough strength to rip a 70 pound old lady from a car
I don’t know why I’m advertising this because its not the greatest and I’m a horrible actor but I worked on a new vid for class and it will be available tomorrow for you to watch and silently judge
