Montage

Montage is a technique that is used in film editing to condense space and/or expand the idea of time.  It is an extremely effective way of giving a piece of music more depth.  I have always enjoyed montages that go with music as long as they are done well.

Here is an example of one that I particularly liked.  I think it was very well done and the song worked very well with the visual elements.  It shows how impressive and powerful nature is.  With a mixture of creatures, weather and landscapes, it creates a nice visual experience that can make the song more memorable.  With effects such as slow motion being used, it continues to draw viewers in even more.  I particularly liked the ending where we see the world getting further and further away as the song slows down and comes to an end.
