A first draft of my interpretation of Blodnasir's tiny story.
pamagotchi's recording is EXACTLY what I was looking for. Still not a final draft, but getting there!
I know Joe wanted an animated film, but I wanted to see what I could do with this as well. I still think it could use some adjustments, but I like the idea of it starting small with something like catching fireflies to trying to contain the whole universe in a pickling jar and then coming back in again (I don't know, maybe I've been watching Powers of 10 too many times), but I think ozie's piano piece fits this idea perfectly.
Let me know any comments/criticisms/suggestions you have.

My first RECord made on Final Cut...and it was a bitch...but I suppose it's all part of the learning process.
Second draft of the "more than i can stand" tiny film. Cut down the opening shot-still may play with the idea of putting something else in before the behind-the-shoulder shot, so I'm definitely open to any suggestions. :)
First time ever messing around with Chroma Key on Final Cut. Was definitely inspired by tori's remix of PonderGoblin's CosmicSnow Trapeze record, and everything just came together wonderfully for this.
I slightly tweaked the audio track on this one so the music is slightly quieter, and Joe's VO a little louder. I also used PonderGoblin's suggestion on the clip to use of her (I actually love it even more now-thanks for the tip!)
