I created my own music video for the song called New Slang, by The Shins, for an assignment in my Art 110 class (2014). We had the opportunity to create an artistic project of our choice. I chose to create this music video. My inspiration for the video was the original music video itself. The original video shows the band hanging out together and them doing anything they wanted. The song is very mellow and calm and I wanted show friends doing what friends do, driving around and going on an “adventure.” My two friends helped me make this video possible.
I filmed some of the shots, directed, and edited the video. An HTC smartphone was used to film the video and it was edited on Windows Movie Maker.
The original music video can be found here.
