This video came from a need to provide some visuals to a track I produced a few nights ago after being inspired by one of my all time favorite bands Slowdive while listening to some of their older recordings (Shine and Allison come to mind). I spend about 4 hours in the studio putting the music together and then I realized that without a video, nobody would really fully experience it the way I was feeling it and so I new I needed something visual to connect to it.
I wound up using RunwayML's Gen-2 to generate about 500 4 second clips and then I assembled the ones that worked the best into this video. And I managed to pull that off in another 6 hours including the editing. I think the clips were abstract and consistent enough that it didn't make sense to perform a transformative diffusion pass on them this time, which means this video feels really different than the others I've done more recently.
That said, I'm really happy with how it turned out. Pretty amazing for what can be created in basically 1 full day's efforts.
