Something constant about the Thames. Whatever the time of day or time of year it’s there. Irrespective of what else is happening wherever in the world that may be the Thames is there. And it will still be there long afterwards.
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.
