Pictures to go with the words and music

October 10th, 2020Posted by Nancy

I’d mentioned in an earlier post that I’ve recorded seven short readings and that my husband has been composing background music for them. Now he’s discovered imovie and has made the jump to adding moody and evocative visuals to his compositions.

I don’t know that we’re going to be able to come up with the right images for each reading. So far we’ve got a slo-mo videos of bees in the garden and ideas for some “Ken Burns” photo montages. I’m currently responsible for going through the free images offered at the Paris Museum Collections site to find historical photos of Paris slums. I’ve even played around with my modifying my own photos of Paris, to mixed success (see above). I will point out that the story isn’t actually set in Paris, just a “sort of like Paris” city. Ok, who am I kidding – it’s really Paris, not matter what name it has in the book.

And since we just went back to Stage 2 lockdown here in Toronto, I imagine I’ll have lots of time to look at old photos.
