This animation piece constitutes my first encounter with Google Sketchup. I produced it in a media seminar at the University of California - Los Angeles. I filtered the software program through the lens of cinema. In this regard, the video reflects Lev Manovich's postulate of 'cinema as the cultural interface' of our time. Drawing on my own cinephiliac memory, I was able to understand the basics of the digital technology and apply it to an already established aesthetic template. The result is a rough exercise in 3-D animation and desktop 'pastiche' filmmaking.
