If you have QuickTime installed and ten minutes free, watch this. It’s amazing how cheap news slogans and motion graphics look when you edit them together. Layered on top of endlessly gabbing pundits, they have this hyperactive, desperate need to command more and more of your attention even as they actually say less and less. (The word “evil,” for example, has never been used more broadly.)
I find this piece (a Sundance Online Film Festival entry) especially interesting in light of the questions I noted in yesterday’s entry.
