The People’s Fish

Put together this little short using archive footage from ITN Source and music from Audio Network for the ITN Source Short Film Competition.

I could have made many choices, told various stories, and created numerous narratives with the abundance of footage, audio, and music that was available.

With exactly the same footage but in a different order would my story have been different? Would you have viewed the content differently? Is it political? Is it a statement? Was I having fun? Making a point? Being ironic in a smart phone kind of way?

I think you have to make your own mind up about what you saw, what you thought you saw, and what order you saw it in. But ultimately we should never forget the fantastic power and influence of editing.
