Footage is unimpressive. Story of short is so stupid it really takes away from the quality they are trying to show also. I'm gonna go watch the hbo boxing promo that was great to get this bad taste out of my mouth https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZtMm0swu5i8
Lynch cut his teeth as a painter. His films are like abstract paintings with more dimensions to work with. Now as far as Mulholland Drive, I think one of the keys is that it is dedicated to Jennifer Syme. Syme was an intern for Lynch and she died in a car crash. She was also Keanu Reeves' girlfriend. Lynch probably saw her as a tragic beauty ripped apart by Hollywood and based the movie around that. Plus if you flip the "m" in Syme you have 4 of the letters that make Selwyn.
Good choice to show the footage small and the "making of" footage large. Wouldn't want people to actually be able to see the results of using expensive camera with the stabilizer. F.
No this video is not the oscar winner. Other than the monkeys, this video is pretty weak. The music is over the top and not good. It could have been a minute long instead of seven. This video is way way too dramatic for how little it actually delivers anything awe inspiring.
As far as the product goes, the footage is lackluster. GoPros look cheap and unprofessional. You have to use a better camera to get decent aerial footage. For the hobbyist, this is probably decent if you have lots of money to blow.
