Hoh shit, I didn't even make the connection of Jain and Die Antwoord. I fucking love them. The difference between the two is the way that I imagine the work between the two. In my head, both have to be story boarded, but Jain's video requires some working together with the director and the editor / animator in order to work.

Editors wield the real power.

Walter Murch is a brilliant and famous example. The RadioLab episode called +"Blink" has Murch talking about one of his interesting discoveries from his extensive film editing career.

It really can't be over-sold... anyone who has done any audio or video editing knows that there is a deep and visceral power held by the editor.

I've had the privilege of narrating a movie or two. And when I saw what the subtlest edits could do to the viewer... it was sobering. We really are machines, and we can be programmed and manipulated in scary-easy ways.
