Carl Addy Delivers The “Next Feel” Visual Associations Stream

This was originally meant to be a live-action film with game-play cutaways.

A more intimate narration to the camera in fans voices. The advent of Covid-19 shelved this approach.  Rather than start over we adapted the spoken narration into a connected visual edit utilizing previously shot footage I previously had directed, alongside archival imagery, hand-illustrated and animated sequences, 3D and concept matte painted environments comped with live-action and even home studio shot footage, in fact, there is a shot in there that features some footage I shot in the Gobi desert in December 2019.  The film took the form of a stream of consciousness visual association, a multimedia assault all seamlessly transitioning and match cutting together. Juxtaposed against the narration it feels like we witness the fan’s inner visions that punctuate their game-play experiences. This kind of  visual shorthand is my favorite kind of maximalist eye abuse.
