Mid-Week Music Movie Mash-Up: 28 Weeks Later Vs Heron Blue
January 11, 2017
Uh Oh, Here come the zombz.
My life doing these mash-ups is made sooooooo much easier when both the director and editor are absolute DON'S! The opening sequence of 28 weeks later is one of the best paced 'scary' scenes ever. everything flows off of this underpinning rhythm that in amongst the chaos allows you to interpret everything. 'Heron Blue' by Sun Kil Moon is already quite a haunting sound, bosh that over this sequence and you really see to what extent that haunted sorrow can be stretched. The best thing about this mash up is how it shows that every second bar has something thumping it into the next two. This is perfectly illustrated by the sub that kicks in every two bars in 'Heron Blue' matching perfectly with the dramatic beats in the film (you see the wife in the window on one beat, you see her taken away by a zombie in the next).
