A little while back I was perusing vimeo and I came across this really cool video by Jason Drew. I noticed a particular effect in it that I have always wanted to recreate but never knew how.
Now that television transmissions have gone completely digital you have probably seen this effect before. Your watching TV and then suddenly the image freezes. Then, instead of glitching back to the next shot, its as if the next shot appears to be wearing the information from the previous shot. It’s a surreal effect that can be hard to explain.
Well, I commented on Jason’s video and asked how he did it. He replied and linked me to a series of video tutorials that explained how. It’s pretty awesome because all the software to do your own datamoshing videos is completely free. I recommend checking out the tutorials. Here’s part 1, part 2 and part 3.
I, of course, had to do a bit of experimenting myself. I decided to take a bunch of the shots that I’d collected over the period of the 365 days of creativity and make my own datamoshing video.
It came out pretty beautiful.
The song is from my friends band Odelia. I’m so happy to have used their song. I have been wanting to do something with their music for a while now and I felt like this seemed like a good opportunnity. The song is from their fourth album called “Don’t Go Down To The Water”. The song is called, “Mande Burung”
I hope you enjoy!
