Clint Eastwood: Western King, a tribute video with a difference
Posting privately made or tribute videos is something that I don’t usually do here on the Archive. However, once in a while something comes along which is something a little bit special.
I discovered this video at the weekend, purely by luck - and have become somewhat addicted to it ever since. I was desperate to reach out to the creator of it, a young lady named Daria.
Simply titled Clint Eastwood - Western King, Daria explains in her notes that she is an Eastwood fan and was inspired to put this tribute video together using clips from all of Clint’s major western movies. But it's not just a quick ‘chop’ and ‘paste’ job, it’s really an incredibly well done piece of editing, Using all High definition clips, Daria has also taken a great piece of music (‘outro’) from the French Electronic band M83. Taken from their album Hurry Up, We're Dreaming (2011), the track brings a truly epic feel to the classic images. We think it looks (and sounds) pretty fabulous and thought it deserves to be seen more. So we’re very happy to feature it here. How about an Eastwood / cop tribute too Daria? Now that would also be something! Great work!
