this is a film i made of my fathers N-scale train table which he began building in about 1970 and added onto most every year henceforth. in concert with my mothers collection of Christmas tree ornaments and decorations, theirs was an annual celebration; a collaboration of tedious magic each and every December.
by no means commensurate with contemporary commerce-savvy brevity, at a 'whopping' 13 minutes long, my locomotive micro-epic does not even attempt to comply with todays ever-pandered-to, short attention spans. its sole intent was to quantifiably document visual data for my dad, detailing the miniature landscape of his tabletop project. he would have preferred it to be twice as long. )
Merry Christmas dad.
