Despite its simplicity and the fact that it only runs a little over a minute, I found this video quite challenging to finish.
The piece of music that runs under this video (“Ripples” by Kevin Macleod) actually runs about 3 minutes and 21 seconds. Usually when I’m putting these videos together, I attempt to make the video run the entire length of the musical piece that I’m using.
In this case, I found that I had barely a minute worth of footage where it was raining. My original plan was to try to switch to some other theme or motif but somehow, switching to something else just seemed to be too great of a contrast (Most of the rest of the China footage I’m working with takes place during nicer weather).
At the end of the day I decided to just stick with the rain. I thinks its nice to have a good, solid rainfall every now and then. It gives all the trees, plants, and greenery a chance to replenish, it temporarily solves any dust problems a city might me having. (You ever been caught in the middle of a dust storm? I have). And after the long cold winter we’ve had here in Edmonton, any precipitation is better than snow right?
Well…..maybe except for hail…..
