This project continues from the 'Flip Clock - Basics' video that showed the basic idea behind my flip clock project.
This video shows the method of preComping and controls I used to get around some issues of 3D in After Effects and get's a flip clock style counter working.
**Note: the parented camera from the main comp into the flipper comp is not a complete solution. Dramatic camera movements from all the way around the clock may cause undesirable results as well as parenting the main comp camera to another layer. ** Sorry I didn't work this all the way out but if you followed along I'm sure you can get it all hooked up entirely properly so it works for any occasion.

Reading a newspaper, I saw a picture of birds on the electric wires. I cut out the photo and decided to make a song, using the exact location of the birds as notes (no Photoshop edit). I knew it wasn't the most original idea in the universe. I was just curious to hear what melody the birds were creating.
I sent the music to the photographer, Paulo Pinto, who I Googled on the internet. He told his editor, who told a reporter and the story ended up as an interview in the very same newspaper.
Here I've posted a short video made with the photo, the music and the score (composed by the birds).
