This is a try-out with Windows Movie Maker and a little tribute to music and photography.

MUSIC - The song is a demo called "Neon Fits the Soviet" by Atcapacity, a Los Angeles based music project by DJ Justin Sterling, here collaborating with Emily Kokal. Justin composed the music, Emily wrote the lyrics and sings. Emily's band Warpaint is a big hype right now, December 2010, but at the time this song was created (early 2007), Warpaint didn't even have a name yet. Justin is a DJ in Hollywood, but he is also the anonymous actor ("boy with red wings") in the official video for Red Hot Chili Peppers song "Otherside", one of the best music videos ever made.
