A video mash up I’ve been working on… this is currently a work in progress. This is a visual representation of the first seven tracks from GIRLTALK’s “ALL DAY” album. I’ve built this edit using music videos and live performances. This is an editing exercise and fan video.

He also explained why he got into the game in the first place—and what it would take for him to get out.
