Hello skat, I think I’ve mentioned before that I’ve been obsessing over video editing software, ever since I started shooting video a couple of months ago. and I’ve been teaching myself some corny editing tricks. Cloning, which is the technique used in this video is one of my favourites.
I’ve been wanting to sort of profile friends whose work and creative outlook inspires me, and it was the perfect excuse to play with video editing software. So I had a chat with Lindi about being the first to feature in this profile series and thankfully she is always open to a bit of creative fun, and the video below is the result. I think she did a brilliant job of it. I must apologize however because I fucked up a bit, I had my cellphone in my pocket and you’ll hear about 15seconds of cellphone interference, and I just did not have the heart to edit it out because I also liked what Lindi was saying at the time, but I’ve learnt my lesson and I’ll keep the cell away from the camera next time, but for now it is what it is. One more thing, shortly after I started working on this cloning vibe someone showed me a clip that Karl Lagerfeld made where he interviewed himself. This is not meant to be a copy of that, but rather a tribute to the technique. and here is a link to the KarlLagerfeld video if you have not yet seen it. Enjoy.
And after watching the video above and hearing about all the designers that Lindiwe worked with on her new video, check her do her thing on the video, presenting Lindiwe’s new single Man Made Moon:
