It's got a sinister edge to it. And you know what? With all the drama centered around the Dam lately, I thought we could use some amusement. Check it out.
Hayden says, "I made the video because I'm kind of obsessed with Upper Hahamonga. I grew up hearing that it was an EPA superfund site and then I ran cross country for 3 years and learned most of the trails. I started to find out about the "paranormal" stuff after high school. I know that a few people disappeared in the first half of the 20th century so I was kind of riffing on that with the Noir feeling. In general there's all kinds of crazy superstition around the dam. Paranormal believers go up there all the time and occultists in the Jack Parsons school feel that all of upper Hahamongna is possessed or something because he hung around there a lot to do rocket tests. Suicides are nothing to joke about but this stuff is so ridiculous and happened such a long time ago that I figured I could make a cute video about it...
"As for process I drew the backgrounds in photoshop and animated in Flash. I got a friend to voice it. Not much to it. Again, this is by no means a big piece of work just a little something amusing. I hope write something much more significant that is centered around the area though."
I want to thank Hayden Betts for thinking of us! It's great to do something a little different now and then. And now and now. And just for the record, I don't find Devil's Gate sinister at all. Hee hee hee.
