Dreams within dreams

The boy-child is studying digital media at university and recently made this video for an assignment. He’s really proud of it, and I think it’s quite professional, especially as video is a medium I haven’t really come to terms with yet.

He’s taken what was an exercise in using green-screen, and given it a very dream-like feel. The soundtrack song is Call Me, by Korean singer and DJ, Park Hye Jin. I have no idea about the surreal title.

  1. Dreamy and well done – not that I know much about these things either, but it looks difficult… He seem to enjoy it, and agree he might teach you if you want! And your last statement goes for my son as well…

  2. Very, very cool—i love how he zoomed in and out from her eyes to the shots on the computer screen to the camera and back and forth. I am curious—what city skyline is that in the background at the beginning and end?

  3. Our kids are in a totally different ‘frame’, aren’t they? 🙂 🙂 For years our son has loved his music and videos and worked with different bands, always hoping to find ‘the one’. None of it seems to last, which is a shame, but it makes him happy. That’s all we ask, isn’t it?

  4. Wow! Really, really wow! What an awesome video! I can well imagine him becoming a director for music videos and/or movies – he’s definitely got the talent! Dreamy and mesmerising – what a wonderful combination! Please tell him that I loved it!

  5. I don’t get it, but I’m an old-timer. As I was watching it, I was thinking “this is the future.” It’s part of a world I will never know.

  6. I actually saw the video a few days ago – I was logged out and did not leave a comment.
    I thought it was a professional video and then I read it was your son!
    and it was so creative with all the cool digital effects and even the quirky title.
