I’ve probably done 4 versions of this mix privately, ever since seeing Paper Moon a couple years back. I like it as a weekend driving soundtrack, but I just used it last night as background for a game night gathering. There’s something fantastic about the upbeat mood of swing jazz that takes me back to car rides with my grandfather, and generally puts me in a good mood. The music is light, yet very powerful; there’s a good reason that filmmakers use it to evoke emotions in their audience. If you’re looking for a Christmas present idea, a vinyl copy of the Paper Moon soundtrack would be a near-universal hit.
My hands hurt thinking of all the cardboard cutting to make this happen. Low budget, but wow that is a lot of work to cut & assemble. Great video, great video.
