DIG: A Collector's Story

Short Video

This short video project began with observing my immediate environment. With video as my medium, I was able to record an honest experience, as well as explore camera angles, scale, color, texture, sound, and composition. The project was limited to 10 second clips and only audio native to the original source. I chose to document a family member’s life obsession with music; a collector of all forms and media of music. I knew I wanted the experience to be authentic, so I hit the record button as I asked questions or how to use certain machines, then edited my voice out so that the viewer can experience just the subject interacting with his own passions.
