120 Notes / by matt wolfe [cc]

120 Notes was originally a concept for a "60 Seconds" project - where 1 second is 1 shot . It evolved into 100 Seconds (I liked the number over sixty), but I couldn't find music that I liked at one-second intervals. 100 Seconds became 100 Notes, but in this particular piece there are 121 notes, but with 120 with Marg and one of black at the beginning.

I'd been trying to get this project done since before the summer started, but I could never get it to work, or really look, the way I wanted it to, after three different shoots.

Randomly saw a Philip Bloom (vimeo.com/philipbloom) blog about FilmConvert (philipbloom.net/2013/07/28/filmconvert/), and decided to give the demo a try. I really liked it, and decided to work it into this 120 Notes project.

I completely reworked the sequence shots from my earlier attempts, and decided on the Polaroid 600 film emulation.
