The Origin of Place

I dub this the unintentional video.

Friday night, my brain was about explode while I was furiously studying for an exam, so I decided to take a break and play with my new editing program. Which is why, if you are that attentive, you might've noticed that this video has a lot of footage that I already used in my Goodbye video (or that the footage just seemed completely random or boring, lol.) I originally made this video just to have fun poking around the cropping and positioning.

But as I synched it to music and watched the clips play out, I realized that there was a story there too. And unconciously, my mind started to form words around this story. So eventually, this video just spiraled into its own creation without me realizing it. It was kind of weird for me, since it's usually the other way around: I script first, and then I film. So this was an interesting and new experience for me.

Though I think some of the inspiration definitely came from marionhoney, owlssayhooot, and Hank Green from those videos of theirs, respectively.

I was a bit hesitant to post this video up, since it's so abstract and could be potentially boring to someone disinterested in philosophy (does this video count as philosophy? Perhaps I shouldn't get ahead of myself) or have short attention spans. But I thought I might just upload it anyway. And if you enjoyed it, I tip my hat to you.
