For this project, the entire class was provided with the same footage of Amber performing a basic dance routine against a green screen. We were provided with multiple asynchronous takes from multiple angles. Our task was simply to create a cohesive piece in the tone of our choosing — no guidelines for style or musical material were given.

Nine Inch Nails' "The Mark Has Been Made" evokes a feeling of secrecy and the unknown to me, so I chose to manipulate Amber's fluid movements into a more rigid and sharp movement piece by incorporating sharp jump cuts and speed changes that match the percussion elements of the song.
