“In Paradisum” by Thomas Bergersen + Samsara

This is what happens when I can’t sleep because a gorgeous song and mesmerizing video are floating around in my mind. I have been obsessed with Thomas Bergersen’s album Sun, which came out exactly one year before I discovered it. And I have always considered Ron Fricke’s Baraka as one of my all-time favorite films. This video was edited together using “In Paradisum” by Thomas Bergersen and excerpts from Ron Fricke’s film Samsara, which was a follow-up to Baraka. Witness the mesmerizing Tibetan Buddhist tradition of creating and destroying mandalas made from colored sand.

“Worlds Collide” by Nicki Taylor + “Warriors” by Imagine Dragons

At the time I decided to create this video, it was during the lead-up to the 2015 League of Legends World Championship. The previous year’s tournament had a music video and theme song that was really memorable. This year, for some reason, they had a theme song but no video for it. So made one. I used the video from the previous year and set it to this year’s theme.

“Final Frontier” by Thomas Bergersen + League of Legends: Shurima

The tragic fall of Shurima was nothing compared to the tragedy of its rise from the grave.

This was my very first mashterpiece, which has been a hobby* of mine for the past few years. At the time, I was just immersed in League of Legends because we were traveling around with Strawburry17 for our series Unlocked. It wasn’t until after I completed this video that I realized this could become a regular thing. I definitely didn’t expect it to grow into a full-blown obsession. (more…)
