"Where are you baby?" the impact of a short clip

I really enjoyed creating this video. The footage used was actually just me and my friends messing around drunkenly. I edited and cropped the footage to create a very snappy and haunting video reminiscent of the Blair Witch Project. The hand held quality of the image really adds to the sense of horror and unknown as it feels like something unexpected might happen at any minute, something odd or even unusual. This clip is most effective when played on loop as the repetitive image creates an illusion, making the viewer unsure of the sameness of the repeated clips. The shortness of the clip is very poignant and effective, it creates a shortness of breath reminiscent of horror films, this is exactly the type of effect I want to create: stun people and catch them by suprise.
