My grandfather hated clocks.
Clocks, he said, were deceptive in their construction. They mapped time onto a circle, and told us that every hour, minute, second repeated itself once every day. Around them, we let our guards down, slipped into the easy comfort of repetition, and closed our eyes to the truth: Time was no circle.
On his death bed, he recognized none of us and stared listlessly into space. I think he was looking back on the winding spiral of his life, lingering on every moment he longed to revisit; perhaps in his youth, young brave and stupid, he dared to believe that he could.
He exhaled his very last sigh of regret, and as I closed his eyes, I opened mine: Every second, once passed, was lost forever.
Stella helped me with this:)
Inspired by missamerica's button bumper, thought this could be useful if we ever do anything with childhood/play/etc. It was originally 30 seconds which I thought was too long so I sped it up. If anyone wants the original for any reason, let me know.
I'm the artist to your dreams.
Drawn since we were teens.
Please stay glued to me.
(or) I just want you glued to me.
I once knew a girl so cool she could smoke without cigarettes.
Inspired by Grandmasmethlab awesome artwork, thanks for the stars L.d.n. and Murker for the tiny story Afterlife:
"I am thinking of donating my body to science fiction."
Your mission, should you choose to accept it....
Is to create a short film including the history and growth of the HitRECord community. It would be really cool if you could get Joe, Matt, or Jared to share with you the actual numbers as they grew over time or what they are today. I thought this graph could be animated or something like it. My thoughts were to have the balls bouncing and expanding into the frame with clips of the HitRECord shows or other achievement videos like the releases of the Tiny Stories books, short films, HitRECord on TV, etc.
I also made an album of clips that I thought might help you. I don't have animation skills, but thought this was a great idea for collaboration and maybe Joe could use it on his show.
This message will self destruct in 10 seconds...(just kidding - it will be here forever!)....
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, i am not the best writer but other peoples writing has a huge impact on me :D
i changed the title from shelf of bits as the more i read it the worse it sounded!
This is very rough... I was curious to see how this concept looked.
I recorded the VO into an iphone, so if anyone wants to have a proper go at it, please do.
