Here is the preview of my ipod magic. Have fun watching and let me know what you think. More information about my magic can be found at marcotempest.com
Special Thanks to:
Karl Germain (1878-1959) for the inspiration. David Britland for adding the magic of words, Kevin Blanc for relentlessly tweaking the motion graphics and bringing the butterflies to life, Alain Renold for making Karl smile one last time, Jojo Mayer for the wicked soundtrack. Matt, Sherry, Emily and sweet Carmen for their cameo appearances. Tobias Beckwith for Karls' voice. A super special shout out to Eric Redlinger for programing MultiVid. And to Paul Cope for inventing thermoplastic glue, without it this project would not have been possible.
I made the application that I use to sync the iPods available for free at the App store. So if you feel inspired just download and start creating... Here are the instructions on how to use it: marcotempest.com/multivid

Marooned on an iceberg, the British band Moones tries to survive with the help of a resourceful cat as mysterious events unfold. Band performance combined with puppeteering, effigy burning, animation, and life-casting create a vivid and unique video for this up and coming group.
This is an animation test, sort of a "mini-pilot" that I made for a cartoon show I was developing. It was part of the development bible along with story premises, storyboard/animatics, character designs, etc. I was recently informed that they don't want to continue on with making the show, so... here it is now for you to enjoy.
