Lord of War (Cinema Study)
In this Cinema study for “Lord of War”, I was put to the task of assigning the opening scene with a new music song, and edit it accordingly. I naturally chose “Sympathy for the Devil” by the Rolling Stones, because the lyrics suggest that man is the root of evil, which is what is being shown by the film. While editing this, I used time compression and expansion, as well as simple cutting and looping tools. My main objective was to ensure certain lyrics lined up with certain events. Like the when the bullets start rolling on the ground and you hear “Whoo Whoo” in the chorus, or when the scene ends and you a shout followed by the end of the song.
