[vid] Cycles to Gehenna
here is how a great escape goes when you can't take your dead friends names out your phone
Premiered at VidUKon 2020.
Gratitude to Char for not saying it's stupid when I first told her about it, for giving me a place in her vidshow and then continously providing feedback and encouragement and brainstorming with me when this turned out to be harder than expected. Also thanks to Hanna and Arti for telling me that it's still nice to look at even if you haven't the faintest clue what's happening and to Hanna for explaining why some parts weren't working visually.
(See the end of the work for more notes.)
Music: Aesop Rock - Cycles to Gehenna
I can't tell you how much I love this song. I have always loved it, but not even ten episodes into Nirvana in Fire it became my anthem for Mei Changsu. And I couldn't stop thinking about it, so I caved and made this vid, even though it's probably completely inaccessible to anybody except me. Which is why it's a really cool idea to hand it in as a premiere at a con. You're welcome!
The version on the Con DVD is slightly different from what I ended up posting. I simply ran out of time. There are no drastic differences between the two, just wanted to state that in the unlikely case that anybody actually notices.
