This year I started to process video using VHSs and bending analog video signals.
Results are messy and very lo-fi, but the two guys from NOWhhere
apparently appreciate that feel, and so they hired me to mess up their live session shot by the palmaLover Mr.ZebraSalto
What you see here are three overlapped layers of the same video:
-the original, ungraded HD footage (for definition)
-the footage re-recorded to vhs, acquired with a capture device (to get the VHS look)
-the glitches, recorded with a camera pointed to the monitor (that's why you'll see some moire). These glitches were obtained bending the video signal. I had to record the screen because some cool color shifts and distortions were produced by the screen itself.
I also mixed and mastered the audio track. Sound quality and fidelity was definetly not a goal.
Since we wanted to give it a "lost-and-found-cassette"-character, I intentionally compressed, distorted and cut a lot of frequencies.
