I went to Siena prepared to shoot both still photographs and video, intending to create a photo/video fusion piece representing my Palio experience. This video is the result. It isn’t just about the race, but including many aspects of the Palio that happen in the days leading up to the final race.
For the soundtrack I wanted to use actual sounds recorded during Il Palio, instead of adding unrelated music. Sounds were recorded throughout the week of Il Palio in the piazza and in the streets during flag practices, various processions, and the final race. If you’re interested in more details about how I created the video, read my blog article about Palio di Siena: L’Atmosfera.
