A few years ago I decided to answer the long-asked question “what would happen if you synced Apollo launch footage with David Bowie’s ‘Life on Mars?’
Don’t you even try to deny it, because I know you’ve asked question that at least once in your life.
You haven’t? Oh..
Well, anyway, it turns out it looks pretty neat.
The original version of the video was cut back in 2011. This one, posted here, is a re-cut I made this month. The old version didn’t flow in certain spots, so I decided to touch it up a bit. The 16mm launch footage is a mixture of the Apollo 8, 11, and 12 missions.
Watch for volume at the start, and be sure to full screen it!
It’s been, give or take, four-ish months since I graduated from the Broadcast Journalism program at Fanshawe, and since then, I’ve been combing through some of my old projects and assignments looking for things to post here.
At some point the other day it dawned on me that I hadn’t uploaded all of my “In Your Backyard” pieces to SoundCloud, even though it had been months and months since I had made them and had them broadcast on-air.
I had been uploading them regularly onto my account late last year, but somewhere along the way I ran out of free available minutes and was forced to stop. A shame. A travesty!
Well, ok, maybe not a travesty.
So anyway, about a month or two ago I sprung for a pro account on the website, bumping my available time up to 6 hours.
I could finally upload the rest! (Seriously, just 6 hours? C’mon guys. I’m paying $6 a month here..)
Below, in chronological order (by week of airing) are almost all the short docs I did for “In Your Backyard” (a current affairs show on the X) excluding a few which I didn’t like at the time, and still don’t today.
