Edit the archive was a one day workshop as part of my development during the early year of my MA. The focus was to create an essay film, record the audio, then add edited archive footage to accompany the essay narrative.
I have to say, this was the most fun I had, and most intense 3 hours of editing I have ever done. I loved every min of the final result. I want to definitely carry on with what I had learned from this project.
Edit: 04/08/2017 – My only gripe with this film now, would be that fact it has dated so badly in terms of the subject matter. What I am explaining over the audio, I have already moved on from, having realised my mistakes from how I thought about my approaches.
My plan now is to make more of these, as part of my blogging.
