Challenge 1 reimagined. The original rules for Challenge 1 were:
20 second film. Two people. Four spoken words. Three cuts one of which 10 seconds. One insect. Ambient sound augmented by "performed" post production sound. Four written words to contradict the spoken. Some reference to Santa.

I might reinterpret the first challenge.
The Santa part is easier now that its close to Christmas

I made a new video. It should be in the dropbox folder. It's kind of a redo of the first challenge, but not really. It has Santa in it. There's an insect. There are spoken and written words. There are a couple clips longer than 10 seconds. There are 3 parts (but probably like 30 cuts).The 20 second thing is out completely. Not sure if I like the ending, but I let it sit for a while a decided to leave it as is, at least for now. Let me know what you think (about the ending and the whole thing).
I feel that my love for Jean Cocteau and Stan Brakhage can be felt in this video.
