Datamoshing film test – Hexfiend



So I followed the same principles databending these files as I did for the image files. There was of course a lot more code or not code or hexadecimal whatever to get through and of course the process of breaking the code is random so it took quite a while and whilst you’re doing it you don’t know what the outcome will be. The first video took a while to get to that point and while the glitching is relatively subtle, it’s not what i’m looking for. I also don’t like the bits where the image becomes totally glitch. The aim is distortion of the footage, not obliteration!

The second video glitched more and it was going even further away than what I was hoping for. Good to test out, but won’t be pursuing hex fiend as an avenue anymore for now.
