March 5th, 2019 Update: I am adding designs and music videos made before this domain was bought in December 2013. The Soldier Marches On was originally posted on June 14th, 2012. I had a different domain at that time called beatnify.com. Unfortunately, I lost all written content for the blog but I did talk about this design before the speed art video started. You can read a little more information I wrote on Youtube at the time for The Soldier Marches On below. Thanks!
This video is very special to me. I found a song that touches me greatly. A powerful song that I feel motivates me to keep going in design and be more hopeful about my life. The song is called The Great Dictator (ft.Charlie Chaplin) by Cross of Cards.
I contacted the person behind Cross of Cards to use this song in the video. I am so very thankful that he gave me consent to use this song. I love this song very much! It’s so powerful.
I highly recommend that you check out more songs from Cross of Cards. http://soundcloud.com/cross-of-cards
I also recommend that you watch this video in HD. You can see the textures and colors better on that setting.
Programs used: Microsoft Excel and Paint Shop Pro 8
It took me about an hour to make the design. I had to speed up the video by 4x.
