Images For HD Video: Sometimes In The Waking The Reality Is More Pressing Than The Dream

There are times when I have a visual dream. In the waking. A collage of kinetic images. And as painful as it may sometimes be, I can but only love … living my art; finding fuel for it in the most unlikely places …

a new day …

This piece is an exploration of the moment when waking from a dream. The dream persists, but so does the realities of life:  Our personal journey. As they intrude. Crash. Collide. And take us for a ride along the highway of uncertainty. I think it is here, in this moment, that we can rise from our slumber with our greatest fear or with our greatest hope. As we face the day, with our portfolio of experiences, memories, and designs, we can, with internal intent and wisdom, begin our search for a better tomorrow.

  2. Very cool, Walter. Do you use AfterEffects or Flash for your videos? Love the transitions and music choice also.

    • Thanks ADM, for the thumbs up 🙂 Interesting enough there are multiple processes to get this effect. And it is still in question how the end results are created. I film with as much motion as possible, then use different transition templates multiple times with the same footage. Upload to Youtube. Use their coloring effects and add music. I’ve used the music of Nine Inch Nails on several of my videos.

    I get those types of images all the time. Right before you wake up, they’re the strongest… then you have trouble believing if it was real or a dream. Interesting.

    • So true Maggie The moment before waking is when the dreams are most vivid.
