therobstory.com – rotating intro films

art director/designer: rob story, editing/visual trickery: d.j. weakley, film: archive/found footage

this series was a combination of old school and new school production. when i did these things, i didn’t feel like i could get an accurate representation of the old silent film “scratchy distressed look” digitally. it’s gotten a lot better now, but back then there still wasn’t a convincing filter. so i did the type on the computer, printed it out on the printer and then distressed, moved, scratched, etc. each individual frame, over and over – hundreds of times. then scanned each frame in and lined them up for dj to animate. the result was perfect. and we just used the original music from each of the clips.
