All the sounds you hear were created by 90 tracks of cello, piano, and vocals (with a little wind and suspended cymbal)
This is NOT green screen. Everything you see is real snow and ice.
Story behind the song:
The location was a huge factor in picking the song Let it Go from Disney's movie Frozen. Ryan Davis from the Ice Castles contacted Paul a year ago wanting us to film there, but at that time we could never think of a song that would do it justice until last December when Paul took his family to see the movie Frozen. After coming out of the theater, he knew what needed to be done and got the ball rolling.
So who doesn't love a story about an estranged ice princess, a dynamic mountain man/reindeer duo and a snowman obsessed with warm weather? We all loved the movie "Frozen" and its single, "Let It Go." So much emotion, energy and drama packed into one tune. But we thought we'd add a little more drama...by melting together "Let It Go" and themes from Vivaldi's classical piece, "Winter." (You can watch an impressive performance of the original here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yu6Hr9kd-U0 - see if you can find where we used the main themes from each of the three movements.) Vivaldi's almost reckless string motives helped us surround the determined, upbeat melody and chords from "Let It Go" with intensity and uncertainty. We wanted the music to alternate between "freezing" and "thawing," representing the opposing forces throughout the "Frozen" story.
We were extra ambitious about capturing as much definition of the ice as possible so we decided to give 4K a try (a step up from 1080p HD) using the "RED" camera (same camera used in filming "The Hobbit"). So we called up our buddy Jacob Schwartz who rented us his awesome camera set up! It was challenging for Paul and Shaye to learn a whole new system and camera minutes before the shoot, but after awhile started getting the hang of it...:-) Editing the video on the other hand was a whole new process in processing that 4k footage. It took us 4 times as long to edit the video and fix glitches that kept happening working with such large files! After this experience, we might have to give 4k a try again, but not until we've mastered the art of it all which this video got us on the path at least.
Special thanks to Ryan Davis and his way cool crew at the Midway Ice Castles for hosting us. They built this winter palace one icicle at a time. Amazing! They were so nice and they really went the extra mile for us.

Modern Ruin: Black HoleThe first half of a film 150,000 photographs in the making combining time lapse footage of riots and optical illusion paintings. <br />
Please take a look at my Kickstarter campaign for the second half of Modern Ruin:<br />
This is the first half of a film I have been working on for over a year and a half. It’s 150,000 photographs in the making (and counting). I am releasing it along with a Kickstarter campaign designed to fund the second half. If you’d like to see more from where this film came from you can view the video I created for the Kickstarter campaign. It features several exclusive time lapse clips that preview the second half of the film (I’ll leave it up to you to figure out which ones they are).<br />
Modern Ruin is a contemplation of the idea that creation and destruction is the same thing (this half of the film focuses on destruction). The white hole from which our universe sprang, and the blackness into which it may disappear testify to as much, yet these bookends of existence are inadequate to address everything in between. For a better sense of what it is to exist we must speak to atoms, trees, whole collections of worlds, and of course, womankind*.<br />
If a deity intervenes in the world of women it is only through the troublesome laws of nature and the coin toss of probability. When prayers are answered it is because the requested circumstance would have occurred naturally. Otherwise, prayer for impossible things such as moved mountains or the end of violence in the genetics of women could occasionally occur. I say this not as an assault on sacred beliefs, or advocacy for close-minded atheism, but as a realization that falls outside all personal belief.<br />
As a species, our continued survival is subject to natural laws and our own decisions. An asteroid may one day burn the world and fulfill the apocalyptic prophecies of many sacred texts, but it will not be sent by a God; it will be sent by physics. Further, on the condition that we reverse the wretched trend of defunding the future, in the form of education, the arts, and exploratory science, we can see the apocalypse flying through space in our telescopes. And we can prevent it from happening. In other words, our fate as a species, and the fate of our beautiful blue home is more in our own hands than the hands of any divinity or natural occurrence. <br />
As with all my films, every event depicted in Modern Ruin happened in naked reality, from the riots, to the optical-illusion paintings. In the same way that you, life itself and even the laws of the universe are deeply paradoxical, so too are the realities pieced together to form this non-reality.<br />
NOTES: <br />
All of my films are accompanied by still portfolios and outtakes culled from thousands of photographs shot for the film. They are designed not just to reflect the artwork in the film, but to add another dimension to it. They can be found on my website: www.jeff-frost.com<br />
*All male pronouns referencing humanity have been changed to female in my description. This is not to elevate women above men, but to magnify the imbalance of gender norms in current society. Taking this approach for even one day is an eye opening experience.<br />

Commissioned by our client, A/G NYM, we were charged with the task to create a short film based around theme "Finish(ed)" - the idea of overcoming the immediate while pressing on in the greater journey.<br />
It was filmed on site for 10 days in Colorado with Andy Catarisano leading the shoot and Jon Prensner feeling the cold burn of antiquated hiking gear. This project was conceptualized around a year ago, and the cast/crew did an exceptional job in bearing both sub-zero temperatures as well as the burden of time that a project can take. After an initial delivery 3 months into the project, the team charged through and pulled off sets of revisions to bring this piece to the place it deserved to be, so massive thanks to everyone.<br />
Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging. Psalm 46:2-3<br />
The principle runs through all life from top to bottom. Give up yourself, and you will find your real self. Lose your life and you will save it. Submit to death, death of your ambitions and favourite wishes every day and death of your whole body in the end: submit with every fibre of your being, and you will find eternal life. Keep back nothing. Nothing that you have not given away will be really yours. Nothing in you that has not died will ever be raised from the dead. Look for yourself, and you will find in the long run only hatred, loneliness, despair, rage, ruin, and decay. But look for Christ and you will find Him and with Him everything else thrown in.<br />

WHAT IS SUNSCREEN?
Wear Sunscreen or the Sunscreen Speech are the common names of an essay actually called "Advice, like youth, probably just wasted on the young" written by Mary Schmich and published in the Chicago Tribune as a column in 1997.
The most popular and well-known form of the essay is the successful music single released in 1999, credited to Baz Luhrmann.
Mary Schmich's "Advice, like youth, probably just wasted on the young" was published in the Chicago Tribune as a column on June 1, 1997. In her introduction to the column, she described it as the commencement address she would give if she were asked to give one.
The column soon became the subject of an urban legend, in which it was alleged to be an MIT commencement speech given by author Kurt Vonnegut in that same year (in truth, MIT's commencement speaker that year was Kofi Annan). Despite a follow-up article by Mary Schmich on August 3, 1997, in which she referred to the "lawless swamp of cyberspace" that had made her and Kurt Vonnegut "one", by 1999 the falsely attributed story was widespread.
When the column was later turned into a song, Schmich's "wish" came true when the University of Zagreb's Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computing started to play the song Everybody's Free (To Wear Sunscreen) at every graduation ceremony.
The poem-like piece has drawn frequent comparison to the Max Ehrmann poem Desiderata, which was also the subject of an urban legend misattribution.
The essay was used in its entirety by Australian film director Baz Luhrmann on his 1998 album Something for Everybody, as "Everybody's Free (To Wear Sunscreen)." The song sampled Luhrmann's remixed version of the song "Everybody's Free (To Feel Good)" by Rozalla. The song was subsequently released as a single (with the opening words changed to "Ladies and gentlemen of the class of '99").
Luhrmann explains that Anton Monsted, Josh Abrahams and he were working on the remix when Monsted received an email with the supposed Vonnegut speech. They decided to use it but were doubtful of getting through to Vonnegut for permission before their deadline, which was only one or two days away. While searching the internet for contact information they came upon the "Sunscreen Controversy" and discovered that Schmich was the actual author. They emailed her and, with her permission, recorded the song the next day.
The song features a spoken-word track set over a mellow backing track. The "Wear Sunscreen" speech is narrated by Australian voice actor Lee Perry. The backing is the choral version of "Everybody's Free (To Feel Good)", a 1991 song by Rozalla, used in the film William Shakespeare's Romeo + Juliet. The chorus, also from "Everybody's Free", is sung by Quindon Tarver.
The song was a worldwide hit, reaching number 45 on the Billboard Hot 100 in the United States, and number one in the United Kingdom and Ireland, partly due to a media campaign by Radio 1 DJ Chris Moyles. It was a part of the end credits in John Swanbeck's film The Big Kahuna, starring Kevin Spacey, Danny DeVito and Peter Facinelli.
The video which uses the 1999 single edit of the song was directed and animated by Bill Barminski. The video aired on all major networks in the United States and was featured on the The Tonight Show, The Today Show and The View as well as VH1 and MTV.
Here is the "Everybody's Free (To Wear Sunscreen)" Official Video from the album Something for Everybody.

I'd also like to recommend all of you to watch this beautiful music video from 'Nina Simone' that is based on the idea that the seven mortal sins (Pride, Greed, Sloth, Gluttony, Envy, Lust and Wrath) destroy a life of grace in human soul:
Finally, an amazing video that shows our place in the universe. Anyone who understands what this video represents, is forever changed by it:
Fashion Victims"Fashion Victims" es una acción urbana inspirada en los recientes acontecimientos en Bangladesh (el derrumbe el 24 de abril de varios talleres textiles que acabaron con la vida de 1.127 trabajadores) que pretende dar visibilidad a los verdaderos "fashion victims": los trabajadores esclavizados, la explotación infantil y los millones de perjudicados por la contaminación que producen las fábricas en los países de producción.
Varias "blogueras" aparecen sepultadas bajo escombros en la calle Gran Vía de Madrid, dejando entrever algunas extremidades con lujosos complementos (bolsos, zapatos...) que recuerdan a las imágenes publicadas de la tragedia de Bangladesh donde asoman brazos y piernas de las víctimas bajo los restos del edificio.
