Documentary Film Teaser

To the left is a teaser picture of something I've been working on. It's the introductory sequence of an Adam Curtis-style documentary tentatively called "The Horror of Life's Meaning: From Eastern and Western Religions to Liberal Humanism." The movie pulls together some themes from my blog and adds some ideas I haven't written about yet, especially with regard to monotheistic religions, and it will be around three hours when it's done. By "Adam Curtis-style" I mean that it's mainly a collage of archival clips with music and me talking in the background.

    1. Well, I'm on page 4 of 36 in terms of putting together the visuals and audio, so there are at least a couple months to go. On the plus side, the introduction was relatively slow because I had to practice using the software. The more I do, the faster it will go. The whole thing is written already. I just need to find suitable videos and songs to use and compile them. But it's not my day job...

    2. Cool. I look forward to an easier format to ingest your output. You may even go viral ;) hehe

    3. Thanks, and that's the idea, to go viral, but of course it's unlikely. It must be like winning the lottery, but I think the chances increase the more videos you produce, so I plan to make more documentaries or Adam Curtis-style videos after this one. The others will be shorter so I can make them faster.
