New Video

I'd actually rather if you went to the actual website and watched it in full resolution there, but if you're lazy and don't care about the quality of my work, feel free to watch this crapalicious embed.


Magpie from Christopher Galasso on Vimeo.

This assignment was really about finding instances of light reflecting on surfaces, so I had a whole configuration that didn't work out, so I had to modify my plan and came up with this. Came out pretty well.

Music: Patrick Wolf - Magpie

Shot on: Canon HG10

wow. I really like that!

great song too, i haven't heard it before, but really like it.

has a very intimate feeling to it, and the expressions almost said more than the song.

very nice pairing! :)

I was at work last night and went out afterwards and didn't get home until today, so I missed your IMs.

But thanks though! The song's from Patrick Wolf's album 'The Magic Position'. Get it, it's great.

Wow! That's a great video! I don't know what your original plan would have been but this turned out amazing! You're incredibly talented!

My first plan involved a large, expensive pane of glass that I ended up not being able to use, haha. My original concept would have had the image reflected on the glass as well as cast onto my face so it would have had another layer, but this worked out just fine.

Thanks. :)

I'm blown away. Amazing, Chris. Incredibly fucking amazing.
I would love to hear the critique you get on this.
And love the song, too.

Actually, the critique went a little like this.

*plays video*
*video ends*
*crickets chirp*
*uncomfortable silence*
*my face looks like this O_O*
*after about 5 minutes of quiet, my prof says "simply beautiful. play it again"*

Haha.

xhyperboi is the RoXorZ! LOLz.

Seriously, though, with each project you post, I have to stop and think to myself, "Wow... this is totally something I could never pull-off... especially this fuckin' beautifully!"

I'm not just tryin' to stoke that brilliant burning ego o' yours... you're really a pro at this. And I am now your fan. And as your official fan, I feel that I must go out into the world and pimp this shit OUT. You deserve to get noticed!

And on a whole 'notha note... this video really makes your blue eyes shine.

Waiting for more! - Your Official Fan, Todd

Yeah, on f-book you have to add that application and shit. The video's really tiny on there anyway. I hope you watched it from the link up there and not just the little embedded video. :)

Thanks for lending me your expensive ass projector though. It worked really well and was a lot higher quality than anything I could have borrowed from school. You're la bomba.

Wow, you are pretty, but you may need to lay off the cigarettes. Sometimes that voice sounds like an old hag.

Sometimes you're so cool that it hurts.

Remember when I said the other thing you posted was my favorite video? I lied. This is. This is BY FAR.
