Post #9. Daughtry & Disney
I find it safe to say the majority of people on this earth enjoy music of any kind. I think that people relate really well to music and can even affect our mood. Each song tells its own story and helps people relate to different situations in life. I don’t know if anyone remembers the UPular Remix clip (from the movie UP) from I believe the first week of school, but it entailed an upbeat and cheerful tone. The clip I have chosen is kind of similar to the one from UP, but is different in the way that instead of using sounds from within the movie to make a song, this clip uses a song and puts 2 movies together. This new clip someone made their own music video with clips from The Little Mermaid and Peter Pan to “Life After You” from Daughtry.
In this video, someone spliced together the movies The Little Mermaid and Peter Pan to form a music video. The song “Life After You,” by Daughtry is about loving another person and without them your life would be really bland. I think that the animator used sections of The Little Mermaid and Peter Pan together in a way it was able to tell an alternative story then their original plot lines. I think that the animator of this video succeeded in its purpose to make a music video that included Ariel and Peter, but there were some parts of the video that were put together kind of rough. Also, Peter was very pixilated in some parts during the video.
This video succeeded in the object to tell the story of the song. There are some points I would like to point out. Around 1:00 into the video it shows a “fight” between Ariel and Peter. I think that especially because it was about treasure hunting it was believable because it is something that both Ariel and Peter have done. Some negative points that I would like to point out is around 0:50 Peter looks very pixilated which was kind of a reoccurring problem, and around 3:00 in you can actually see Eric in the background (a character that was not meant to be included). My point is that although there were some technical mistakes I think the animator achieved the goal of using two different movies with different plot lines, and pulled them together for a central theme. Even though it was a little rough at times I really enjoyed watching the video and it evoked the feelings the song was ment to evoke.
