select scenes from “Elegy Highway”

These scenes, while edited and sound designed, are templates for the live video edit and scoring performance of the complete film. All of these posted scenes include, in varying percentages, manual live video editing using a video switcher in response to the music and sound, in combination with a linear method. Some of the mistakes and flaws have been left in for feels sake.
