INGRID MICHAELSON 'ROCKIN’ AROUND THE CHRISTMAS TREE'
COMPOSITING / WIRE REMOVAL
I’ve begun to find the process of wire removal very zen-like at this point. I find myself having to force myself to eat lunch while working on it because it starts feeling meditative and relaxing. This is a new experience and kinda odd…
I created several different versions of the snow. Since it was one of the few elements that was not created practically on set, it was tough knowing how artificial to make it look. I spent an inordinate amount of time developing a look of what was meant to look like big snowflakes cut out of construction paper and affixed to clear plastic that would scroll past the window to reinforce the DIY look of the video, but the visual ended up just drawing too much attention to itself so I settled on just conventional looking snow.
