  1. Great video, Jessie; to me it felt somewhere between poignant and ominous, the latter accentuated by the metallic hitting of the trowel against the instrumental soundtrack, the former by the lamb seeking succour from the quad bike contrasted with the companionship of the children. Excellent work.

      Thank you Hariod. Had to look the word ominous up actually. I like the many contrasts you pick up on here, and there are many. Only this morning it occurred to me that the continuous line is like that of an umbilical (chord) connecting everything together, somewhat.

      Thank you Marissa, yeah it is quite fun playing around with effects. I especially like how the lamb sounds like a cow when the video was slowed down.

      Thanks a lot Carl, do you mean ‘nut’ as ‘not’ as in -not a bit frightening or is ‘n’ meant to be ‘b’ as in – but a bit frightening ?

        If you place a nut next to the wall does it instantly become a walnut?

      • Terrible typos! I actually meant ‘but’ a bit frightening. I started feeling like a child and started remembering difficult times. The music by itself was not at all that way, but it was the combination of the two. It was a very different experience for me.

        Oh great, thanks for clearing that up. Hopefully not to unpleasant an experience for you Carl 🙂

      • I love music and video that is artistic because if it is truly artistic, it does something to the soul – that’s what this did – it lit some fires in the soul. I love that, frightening or not.

        I am so glad you connected, because ultimately I rarely listen to music unless making a video or prior to . That’s because I find music totally consuming in itself and often quite emotionally triggering (for me), like you said ‘does something to the soul’. This intensity is something I can only handle every so often, and often helps unfold aspects of self whilst viewing along with the videos. There are most definitely tears along with smiles embedded within the film 🙂 thanks again Carl

  2. Totally amazing. The music and sound effects really made me wonder what the children were digging up. It had a real edge to it that made me think it might be something not too nice. xxx
