Back in college, I (Mike Matei) took a class called Sound Design and Technology. The assignment was to learn how to do video effects on an analog editing system.
This was the first time I ever video edited anything in my life. Again, this video was edited ANALOG. Meaning, using VHS tapes. It was a nightmare. And yet, a unique editing experience I look back fondly upon.
Usually when I’ve shown this to people, they think I was only trying to match Shatners lips to the song. However, that was only a minor element on my mind while making this.
I was mostly trying to capture Shatner’s attitude and charisma, which in some lucky way, I feel like I did.
Keep in mind, this was made 4-5 years before Youtube existed.
