Reply To: inside of an abandoned hospital video editing


You have some beautifully shot footage here. The problem with it for me is that it’s essentially a series of still pictures onto which you have created movement in a kind of Ken Burns effect. That is, you frame a room, then pan and tilt around it to show what it looks like, just like Burns does with historical photos.

The difference between stills and motion picture/video, however is this: motion picture/video is about capturing motion in a scene or setting — people walking around, animals moving, etc. You have no motion in any of the shots, so you might just as well have shot your entire piece with a still camera and then, as you have with your pans and tilts, impart motion to each still picture in the manner of Ken Burns.

For me, this would have been a far more interesting piece of there had been people in in, perhaps with some kind of story line, preserving your fine photography but creating a compelling reason for “why are you showing me this?”
