1 year ago by Carlo Patrão

The judge's selected this video by Carlo Patrão as the winner of the Free Music Archive and Prelinger Archives remix contest. Notice how this entry turned the Prelinger footage into something completely new.


...when the world is whirring at such a fast pace? Scientific breakthroughs, feats of modern invention, and domestic wonders -- the relentless stimuli that animate waking life and permeate dreams are ever gaining momentum. A restless outer world pokes and prods and ultimately overtakes those who would try to rest. Enchanting, enthralling, frightening -- how do you possibly say goodnight?
