The inspiration for this video came from the old windows that had been recently replaced from my family's house, and Anti-Flag's song, "Break Something." There were also other useless items on their way to being thrown out that were useful for this video, such as the small broken tv, bookcase, and dozens of eggs that had expired.
One of the challenges in filming this video was that there weren't identical multiples of the objects being broken, so there were no back-ups for another take. Continuity was also an obstacle. The video was not completely filmed in the order of the edits, so keeping background objects consistent was important. The bookcase was also already hardly staying together and fell over in the wind several times so it goes from standing to laying down in different takes. The weather was another challenge, with it raining off and on all of the day that this was filmed.
This project was useful for working on pacing and timing of scenes, shot composition, cinematography, and directing an actor.
