(updated after the feedback I received: fixed differences in aspect ratio between clips; improved sound ballance)
I chose to make the video in black and white to give it a more consistent look, as well as to surprise people who won’t expect to see logos of modern websites in black and white.
I deciced I wanted a soundtrack that matches the overall style of the video, as well as adding a bit of juxtaposition between the different elements. It is a dixieland piece from 1929 called ‘Ain’t you baby’ by Ray Miller Orchestra.
