Software: ClipConverter and iMovie
I am doing a Supercut on 1 particular overused song that has been used in movies/tv shows to express different emotions. The song I chose is “Fade Into You” by Mazzy Star. The video will be approximately 4:55; the duration of the song. I am going to open up with a title card and the title I am leaning towards is “A Song is Worth a Thousand Emotions.” This song has been seen countless times in a variety of different movies/tv shows. I am going to show clips of each movie/show where the song is played to express that 1 song is not just used only in a sad scene or a particular mood of a movie, but in many different emotional settings. I am going to use clips from Starship Troopers, Angus, Break Up, Jawbreaker, Swept Away, Lord of War, Velodromo, Burlesque, End of Watch, Chasing Mavericks, The To Do List, My Mad Fat Diary, Roswell, Desperate Housewives, Th Following, Cold Case, CSI: Miami/New York, Hindsight, True Blood, Psych, Person of Interest, Daria, Love Bites, Fringe, Without a Trace, Medium, Suits, Alias, Swept Away and Gilmore Girls.
The order isn’t set in stone but I am going to categorize them by certain genres: death, intimate moments, tension between characters, fighting, etc.
I am going to start with the title card, then show the movie posters that the song was featured in chronologically from 1995-2013. Then I am going to play the different clips from both the movies and the TV shows where the song is played but within the categories to structure it and make it more evident.
