Vidder's Notes

"My first creation for 2002 set to the stunning track ‘The Different’ from the album ‘Skin’ by Melissa Etheridge. This is slightly different (no pun intended) to my other vids (I can’t put my finger on exactly why, it just is …… possibly because it’s not quite so ‘relationship based’ as the others). This was a challenge I set myself as I love the song and the more I listened to it the more the chorus of ‘…but don’t you want to know what the dark and the wild and the different know………’ made me think of a certain Warrior Princess.

For those who need to know - This is a FIN-free vid.

If anyone is interested in such things, this is probably my most technically challenging vid yet – 50 scenes divided into over 100 separate clips with around 80 transitions (the good old cross dissolve) and 15 instances of superimposed/overlay clips. Phew!![1]
