Imagine a tiny empire in the palm of your hands, just like one in a video game. I set this award-winning short film from Digital Corridor to the epic music of Thomas Bergersen. Every other video I’ve ever edited has between a few dozen and several dozen cuts; this one has four. Serendipitous is the word that comes to mind.
Last night, Spot (my cat) kept me company while I was sick. I was having severe chills and curled up in the fetal position. She deliberately laid down on the pillow next to me, inches away from my face, and watched me until I fell asleep. An hour later, I woke up and laid there motionless, no longer overcome with chills. After a few moments, she got up and left the room. I’ve known that girl all 13 years of her life, so I know her pretty well. And I can tell you with total confidence that the only reason she stayed on that pillow that whole time was to comfort me.
I’ve been wanting to do this for a very long time, but none of the videos I found seemed to have the constant kinetic energy that this song requires. I had the first trailer for Smite in my queue for several months before I stumbled back upon late last night. Within minutes, it became clear that the two would work great together. A bit of tweaking later, this video was born. This is one of the only first drafts I’ve felt comfortable releasing.

“Perhaps we had a chance for peace, but desperation and trust are seldom allies.”
I’ll have more to say about this video later, but it’s worth noting that this is my first video in 4k.
