This multimedia piece not only tells an interesting story, but it’s editing techniques, while subtle, are equally interesting.
The introduction does a great job combining still imagery with video. It’s actually heavily weighted towards still imagery at the beginning. The pictures include drinking and nudity while profane voice over’s frame the photos. This does a great job to set the tone for the film, which delves into drug and drinking problems.
Towards the middle of the end, the still imagery represents itself – this time with more nudity. But then it shifts into a military side – also using all still imagery. Now the imagery focuses on family and veterans.
The piece ends on a man back flipping into the water – it’s an interesting conclusion.
