In order to make my film I used the software VDMX5, which I used for most of the effects in my video. All of my editing regarding manipulating the clips was done in iMovie. The videos I used in my piece were downloaded from YouTube using a website called www.savefrom.net. I got my gifs and still images from tumblr. The song that I used to make my music video is an unreleased song by DJ EFX. The specific effects I used on VDMX5 were bloom, rgb trails, Gweight, Rweight, and shape mask.
To portray the idea of time passing by, I used repeated clips but used different effects on the clips to represent how things change as time goes by. I also repeated some of the clips to give the idea that history sometimes repeats itself.
