I made this video a couple of nights ago, I'm not entirely sure what the intent or motivation behind it was but I think I wanted to make something which would get various different reactions.


Personally I'm proud of it, I like it. It's very much a kind of avant garde style of video.


Anyways, give your responses! I'd love to hear what people think.


Also, if anyone else has any other avant garde style videos (similar to this, or something else) chuck it up here too! Be good to get some of this stuff going, it's always fun

Aahhhh you guys totally miss the point.

It's avant garde.

That's the whole damn point of it! It's weird, it's confusing, etc etc.

There's good avant garde and there is terrible avant garde.


I suppose 'Eye of the Beholder' has some reference to that, in respect to the love/hate or amazement/confusion 'avant garde' works tend to suffer. It's all a matter of opinion and personal view affected by our personalities and tastes.

That previous paragraph probably gives some meaning to what you did, but in my eyes, it sucks.

Yeah but with you, everything I do sucks


Basically what I wanted to get out of everyone was "WTF?! " or something like that. Hell, I almost made some guy piss himself when he was drunk watching it. That's the sorta stuff I wanna get.

Though with UG I should've expected all answers to be like "fuck you" and "you're gay" and stuff

Scourge, I have no idea what the purpose of this video is. Is it to watch it? If so, I don't like it. It's just your eye for 10 minutes and some weird noises. There's no entertainment value in that
It's not the kind of video I'd show to a friend either.

I'm guessing it's for provoking a reaction, if so my reaction is "o...k..." or possibly "scourge, wtf?"

I don't see any value in this, sorry.

There's not meant to be entertainment value, fuck, I wouldn't watch it for entertainment value.

It's to make people go "wtf" mostly

i think i actually said wtf when watching that. I really do think the only words my mouth could utter were What, The, and **** in about 12 different orders even though that is not possible.

The only reaction it got from me was 'ho-hum'.

There are too many people trying to do things to mark them out as 'different' from the rest and I'm afraid, despite your efforts, this piece just wasn't different or visionary at all.

In my honest opinion, it is so far removed from being avant garde that it is just boring.


Films have a purpose, generally to communicate a message. This has no message, it was only to get a response. That is why I think you failed.

This wasn't avant garde, it was a poor recreation of the new Slayer video.

It was different though. I did say "wtf". I even pronounced it double-you-tee-eff. So I guess you won.

It took about 30 minutes to make, is that really taking up all my precious time?


And alright, so the video's shit. I thought so as well. But I had some footage of my eye on my computer from a year ago, it was 3am, and I wanted to potentially freak out anyone who saw it and make them go "wtf".

And I guess I assumed most of UG would be a bunch of dumb retarded people who'd freak out screaming "wtf" and wanting me dead. I guess I don't really have too much respect for the majority of UGers, eh? Don't give them enough credit
But can ya blame me, really?

Yeah probably lol. Fuck, I'm a media student, I've had shit on TV for months, don't try and tell me anything about film like that
Yeah, didn't have a message. I didn't want it to have a message. I wanted to put some old stock footage to use and hopefully freak out some people in the process.
