Project #8 – COYB

So it took me all summer but I finally wrapped up editing Project #8 – the Choir Of Young Believers music video! Footage came in all shapes and sizes and it was definitely tricky dealing with it all but it all worked out. It looks like everyone had a blast!!!

      It does do something. The charcoal in the exclude grabs impurities in your water middle of adsorbtion (not absorbtion). This means that all those impurities "stick" to the charcoal. There is a earmark that goes into more fact hither it. It’s called "What Einstein told his chef" at near Robert Wolke. Try the library and study the chapter on wet filters.

Music Video: HVOB “The Anxiety to Please”


Part music video, part art installation, the tracks off HVOB’s latest album are something of a dialogue (or rather a “trialogue”) with Austrian artists Clemens Wolf and lichterloh. Each collaboration operates as a self-contained piece (installation, music, and video), highlighting different materials and their mesmerizing transformations. Check out the captivating experimentations for “The Anxiety to Please” off the album Trialog below!
