Nostalgia

I created a video expressing nostalgia. The process of sourcing props was extremely nostalgic in itself and I believe the final result is successful in expressing how I felt during the creation process. I extended a little beyond my storyboard adding a few extra scenes to fit musical requirements.

I also decided to not crop the film to a 4:3 aspect ratio as it felt a little too old and having it at 16:9 made it feel like a modern window on old times. I kept the vignetting and was also able to create a lens/film flaring effect that simulated the bright orange/red spots sometimes seen on old home-made films.
