Two Cars, One Night: cars in loco parentis outside a rural NZ pub

"Youngsters Romeo, Ed, and Polly wait in two cars after dark while their parents are inside drinking. It's a situation many Kiwis would recognise: cars in loco parentis outside the bar or rugby club. Soon cross–car rivalry warms to budding friendship. Winning performances, and the tender mix of comedy and romance saw the tale of a Te Kaha pub carpark become an international hit."

Avondale Dogs: a young boy's relationship with his dying mother

O Tamaiti: young boy who is expected to play guardian to his siblings

"Sima Urale's debut short film, beautifully realised in black and white, tells the story of a young Samoan boy who is expected to play guardian to his siblings. As his parents struggle in their new country, he is overwhelmed by the responsibility. When faced with his grief, the adults fail to recognise his pain. Poignant attention to details that convey a child's perspective (eg. the movement of a spacies game and shopping trolley are intercut) saw O Tamaiti win awards at film festivals around the globe, including the prestigious Silver Lion at Venice."

Gotye remixes the covers: Somebodies A YouTube Orchestra

"Reluctant as I am to add to the mountain of interpretations of Somebody That I Used To Know seemingly taking over their own area of the internet, I couldn't resist the massive remixability that such a large, varied yet connected bundle of source material offered.

 I was directly inspired here by Kutiman's Thru–You project: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tprMEs–zfQA‬
 Wonderful stuff!

 Thankyou to everyone who has responded to Somebody That I Used To Know via YouTube. It's truly amazing! All audio and video in Somebodies is from the YouTube user videos featured, each of them a cover or parody of Somebody That I Used To Know. No extra sounds were added to the mix, but I used some EQ, filtering, pitch–shifting and time–stretching to make the music.

 A full list of links to the original videos is available here:
‪ http://www.gotye.com/#blog.html ‬

I avoided using any existing remixes of the song, or any covers from tv talent shows.
 As comprehensive and extensive as I tried to be with my downloading of source videos, I know there are many clips that I missed. 

I used Ableton Live for audio stretching, pitch–shifting and the initial video editing, and Adobe's After Effects to put the final video together. 

Big thanks to Travis Banko for assistance with downloading source videos, and to James Bryans for After Effects tutelage.

 Thankyou to Barry for being Barry, and guiding us all. Thanks to you for listening.
