So this is the second version with the bits covered up! i thought it might inspire a story! :D
my idea kind of is that everything we read becomes a part of us.. :) :) partly inspired by pam and Illia's conversations about the impacts of their writing :D
i changed the title from shelf of bits as the more i read it the worse it sounded!
A lot of people have done some really great and mostly literal illustrations for 'the magicians (Tiny Story)'... I just wanted to take it down a different path and see how it worked.
I made this illustration to put on a kite, but there are so many illustrations that would look great on a kite.
it was the beginning of the end and we hadn't even spoken.
This piece is the child born of the story below: Please, read it if you would like to know more about my own story behind it.
There's plenty of room for people to put their own story to it, or comment about how they interpret this video... or derive something entirely new from it. Who knows!
Though, in short, this piece is a wave goodbye to my past. Now, finding myself on hitRECord, collaborating means building new things. Part of building a-new is letting go. Inadvertently, while building the edit I discovered that the threaded stories are connected in very unexpected ways, but that there is one underlying story being told over the years.
With collaboration in mind, there's a lot more I would have liked to include in this (To just give to hitRECord), but since a lot of it is under the (Awfully outdated) Warner/Universal contracts - they technically own it, even though I created it... and since THE LAW IS THE LAW... well, I could only use some of my old stuff. Which, I simply wanted to offer up to anyone who wants to do anything with it. Hence why I am also uploading the raw materials (Including some RAW .R3D files and 1080p versions)
On a special note: The beginning and the end shots of the girl in bed, are of Michéle, and also the very first things that I'd ever shot with her (12 years ago?) - which, was one of the very first times I'd done something on my own for the sake of doing it. That is to say, not as part of some music video or some client thing. Then again, you'd get that and then some, if you read the story linked above! (Personally, I wish I could find the old stop motion flicks I made when I was 6... oh well.)
Added this to a few other related collaborations, aside from just the loops collab. Which, I know is an old project - but I still wanted to put this in there, since it's so deeply personal to me. It hit me in the bones.
