Trippy - sooo cool.  I've been playing '80s music all week - this is perfect!

it Said "Love" I had to watch.

The Madame, Mazurka Approves! 

I adore the costumes, are all these clips from Chicago? The black wrapped strappy things are SHMEXY as hell.   I'd say great matchup and must have been a fun romp to edit.

Thanks for watching and leaving comments!

Most of the footage is from Chicago and Nine (both directed by Rob Marshall). If you liked Chicago you will probably like Nine, which isn't quite as good but still pretty spectacular visually. I also used a documentary called Samba to Slow Fox which was about ballroom dancing contests. The video started out being about nighttime New York and you can still see some general urban sparkliness in the background of several sequences. That footage was from a tourism doc called Views Above New York.

The black strappy outfits, the lovers' ballet, and most of the energy is from Chicago. The showgirls and the sensual lounging is from Nine. The couple in the matching sparkly blue are from Samba to Slow Fox. This was fun to edit but a bit of a pain to render. The world is collectively dumping the early Mac Pros on the used market because they can't run the current Mac operating system. I'm tempted to buy one of those beasts just for their raw processing power.

Thanks for 2 tips: I'll have to see "Nine", and I'll start shopping for one of those old Mac Pros.

You are fast becoming one of the most artistically creative editors I have seen on the net.

You just reminded me I have a G5 sitting around with a bad HD controller that I have been sitting on repairing until the MB dropped to a reasonable price.   I should look into that now.
