WARNING: This video has rapid sequences of still images and motion video. There are also flashing lights. If you suffer from seizures, extreme caution in viewing is urged. It's not R.E.M. fast but, after a slow start, the speed ramps up quickly. This is easily the fastest paced video I have ever put together.
I am linking all three videos in the Boise State 2012 series. I wouldn't normally do this but I think these would work really well as background ambience at a gameday or tailgate party. Originally meant as a solitary story line, I think they work really well together when viewed one after the other.
Notes on the Wolf Against the World video:
After a slow start, this video ramps up in pace quickly. I advise you not to try and keep up. You should zone out a little bit and just let the images flash before your eyes. This is meant to be like a visualized 'stream of consciousness', kind of like those uber fast mental uploads from the movie The Matrix. The goal I am shooting for is to reacquaint you with what Bronco football looks and feels like after a long off season. Ergo, you don't need to assimilate each and every individual image but should, rather, be left with an overall impression that stays with you for a while after viewing the video.
The song is what is called a mashup. I have not learned to do this on my own although I'd really like to know how. I found the basic mashup online, added in full segments of the Wolf Like Me song, added background vocals from Rhianna's "So Hard", added sampling from Eminem, added voice over of navy Seal addressing Congress, and added the Marine Corps jodie "Fired Up" at the end.
