This is an interview with Icyrascal the one behind the very moving video “To Watch You Leaving…” You can watch the video below.
DC: What inspired you to make your videos?
I: My videos are fueled by my personal experience, i do what i feel to do, it’s all about the flow of mixed intense emotions you never expressed. It’s like wishing for things to come back and change them but in reality, you can’t, that’s where the video enters, like having your personal space of expression and diversion.
DC: Would you recommend using Dreamstudio to your family and friends?
I: Well, i have recommended it to my friends and family, they find it easy to use…
DC: Will you make another Dreamstudio video again soon? When?
I: Yes definitely. Im working on a new video and i’d like to experiment with film, pictures and various features of
Dreamstudio. I just need to figure out my flow of context and dynamics with the theme of my video.
DC: Do you have dreams of directing films in the future?
I: It has been one of my frustrations to be a Film Director, Dreamstudio has made this possible.
DC: Do you think Dreamstudio can be a good training ground for directing?
I: Yes. The fluidity of dreamstudio fits the question very well, it is a fine tool for groundbreaking videos.
DC: What topics do you mostly like to make videos about?
I: As what I said in the First question, it is by my own experiences, Love, Life and the reality we exist in.
DC: How has Dreamstudio helped you to express yourself?
I: Dreamstudio helped me express my creativity in the architectures of the videos I made. It has been both a
experimental media and a tool for not only me but as well as the users of dreamstudio.
DC: Have other users’ comments helped you?
I: Yes. It show that there are a lot of users there that understand the message behind the videos and they are sort
of a “survival space” for me to improve more.
DC: Are there videos from other users that you enjoy?
I: I have enjoyed videos from girlinblue and shadowcat. I like the themes that inspired the videos.
DC: Do you look at other peoples’ videos for ideas and for inspiration?
I: Not really, as muych as possible, i want to get the context right out of my personal experiences, thus being an emotional reality
DC: How do you find Dreamstudio’s features in terms of ease and functionality?
I: I find Dreamstudio’s features as easy as A-B-C. It makes video and slideshow creation a thing of the past, the only limit is your imagination.
DC: Do you have any suggestions on how Dreamstudio can be improved?
I: Yes, I would like Dreamstudio to have more effects and transitions; and also upgrading the maximum “per frame”
limit and the upload limit, Plus that, It could help if more Music and Video Formats were supported.
DC: Are there any tips you can give to Dream Studio users?
I: Sadly, I see lots of video that are not in the right aspect of incorporating thoughts and ideas into them. It would be much better if they would be doing that because, creating a video in Dreamstudio has proved them already of thier potentials, they just have to unlock those by freeflowing their minds through their videos.
DC: a What is the message behind your video, “To Watch you Leaving” ?
I: “To Watch You Leaving” was conceptualized when at one time recently, I felt that the world was going down on me,
that, I thought of the past happenings (heartaches) in my life. The poem was from Jocelyn Galvano-Pickett and it was about her husband leaving her. I was moved by Ms. Pickett’s thoughts and pain, realizing that we shared the common thought in situations like that. I guess, the message that I would like to bring on is that love can make a person so sensitive and that, when deprived of it, completely destroys the person, the harmony, and the world revolving around him or her.
