For the Bring Your Own Beemer party, my video was loosely based on the iconic New York City during Christmastime. Scenes of the installation and lighting of the massive Christmas tree at Rockefeller Center were segmented with some of my favorite scenes from the popular holiday film Elf, by Jon Favreau. Buddy the Elf is new to the Big Apple and wanders around like an tourist in search of Christmas cheer--hilarity ensues.
While edited in full color, the projector connected to my video filtered the footage in black and white. This alteration actually made the piece a little more cohesive and lended a vintage feeling to the more modern movie snippets. The twinkling lights and ice skating scenes window displays looked just a good!
Below is the video in full (the DVD has a looping feature) and the song used is "Baby, It's Cold Outside" by Zooey Deschanel and Leon Redbone, from the Elf Soundtrack:
