*"burning school" official music clip*
> shot during a carnival fest at Galaxidi on ash monday in 2008. The track is based on an audio sample of an old greek song "kaike ena scholio" where there is a reference to Galaxidi in its lyrics. That's why I chose to combine this old audio reference along with a contemporary view on people at Galaxidi. The juxtaposition of shots is not a result of detail editing. The footage is actually shot in a constant flaw of tiny portions of pictures. I just took out most of the wide shots where the visual information tented to be more descriptive. Focusing in details and close ups offers the oppurtunity to create another kind of reality through the video camera due to the out frame information which exists but you never see it. In addition, viewer's mind always try to imagine and compose the extra out of frame information resulting in either a creative viewing experience or in a complete confusion and misleading making viewers close the browser's tab during the first 15 sec and get no more views in your youtube page for ages!!!!
> the track "burning school" is part of the cd release "free piece of tape" of granny records
