Moving Moodboard

Clips: 1. Recording from a BBC Ballet contest. 2. Joy and George swimming in the sea with Elsa the lion in Born Free3. Newsround clip from 1993 with a young Kristnan Guru-Murthy (as of this week recently re-appreciated for his skill in interviewing a provocative Quentin Tarantino) 4. Thelma and Louise on the road. 5. Clip from You Only Live Twice 
6. Trawlermen 'gearing up' into their waterproofs and overalls. 

I thought I'd play around with the idea behind the 'moodboard' posts I have so much fun collating and do something similar but with moving images. So, instead of a collage, this is a moving mood board, of various film clips and footage, all intended to be watched with Heatwave's 'Boogie Nights' in the background.

Step 1: Press play for Heatwave's groovy beats.
Step 2. Press play on each of the video boxes, hitting mute at the same time, or experimenting with however much sound you would like from each.
Step 3: Enjoy Kristnan Guru-Murthy's young face, wonder by ballet and disco don't collaborate more often, smile at those trawlermen changing into their overalls. 
Step 4: When it is all over, go on as you were.

Holy gosh, this is the coolest idea ever for moodboards! My gosh my gosh my gosh! This came out really cool, congratulations, my goodness. Playing them all together feels like those restaurants where they have twenty televisions on, all on different channels. This also reminds me I should probably watch Thelma & Louise already.

Ahhh such a cool idea :) Looks amazing.

Also I watched that Tarantino interview and I love his films but man was he ungraceful ! It made quite uncomfortable, but at the same time riveting viewing. M xo

So, so cool! Not sure I can go on as I were now, my mind is truly blown.

As an aside, have you ever seen Center Stage? It's not that good of a movie, but the dance scenes are excellent, especially the final one (, some parts of which kind of reminded me of that awesome ballet-disco mix.

Actually, I hadn't watched Center Stage in a long time, and I just realised how cringe-worthy certain parts are--just skip to 7:22 for the best part haha.
