    It has become tradition for our family to make a Christmas Video in lieu of sending out Christmas cards. This is our third year doing so. See 2008 here: http://vimeo.com/2400199 See 2009 here: http://vimeo.com/7935720 This video was made exclusively with the Canon T2i, using the stock lens {18-55}. Because we experimented with stop motion & photo motion, over 6000 photos were taken during the course of making the film. While our Christmas Videos started out as a means of saying Merry Christmas to family and friends, it's been vastly rewarding to have such a positive response from everyone here on Vimeo. Thanks and hope you enjoy! Music: Here Comes Santa Claus - Doris Day Read about the making of this video here: http://melancholysmile.blogspot.com/2010/12/behind-scenes.html

        • Doris Day Sings About a Geiger Counter (1949)

          Tic, Tic, Tic : Doris Day [1949] In the 1949 Warner Brothers musical 'My Dream is Yours,' a young, fresh and radiant Doris Day (is there any other kind?) stars as Martha Gibson, a singer who moves to Hollywood to audition for a network radio program called 'Hour of Enchantment.' For reasons known only to her promoter (played by Jack Carson), Gibson/Day chooses to belt out a love song about a Geiger counter to ensure her big break. The song is delivered with such radioactive pep that Gibson/Day gets the job even though the fatcat sponsor of the radio show dismisses the tune as 'boogie woogie' and 'too modern.' Doris Day, was born Doris von Kappelhoff in Cincinnati, Ohio 1924 and is best known for a string of timid bedroom farces she made with Rock Hudson in the 1950s and early 1960s. Day became so identified for her squeaky clean persona during this period that the composer Oscar Levant once joked "I knew Doris Day before she was a virgin." Doris Day's first ambition was to become a dancer, but an automobile accident sidelined her at age 15 at which time she turned to singing on radio and in clubs. The young singer took her stage name from one of her earlier numbers, Day By Day. In the early 1940s Day sang with the Bob Crosby and Les Brown bands and quickly became a recording star in her own right. Day became an almost overnight film star when she replaced Betty Hutton in the musical 'Romance on the High Seas' (1948). Day was married three times and her last husband, Marty Melcher, who died in 1968, apparently mismanaged the star's 20 million dollar fortune leaving her virtually broke which led to the star's nervous breakdown. Unbeknownst to Day, Melcher had also committed his future widow to star in a television comedy series on CBS. Day acted on the successful program from 1968 to 1973 and in 1974 successfully sued the lawyer who had been advising her husband on financial matters. She was awarded 22 million dollars. Aside from a brief cable show in the mid 1980s and her philanthropic activities on behalf of animals, Day has avoided the spotlight for decades. Her only child (with first husband Al Jorden and adopted by Marty Melcher), music producer Terry Melcher, died of cancer in late 2004. LYRICS/TRANSCRIPTION: Tic, Tic, Tic : Doris Day [1949] Oh, give me your attention, there's been a new invention It isn't any larger than an adding machine It's only fair to mention, though it's a new invention It's one that you have heard about, but few have ever seen It doesn't do division and it doesn't multiply It doesn't want to be a bird, it doesn't try to fly It came about because they made a big atomic bomb The new invention's clicking and because of all its ticking I know where the idea came from I tic, tic, tic, why do I tic, tic? What amazing trick makes me tic, tic, tic I tic, tic, tic an electric tic When I feel a realistic tic You're such an attractive pick You give me a radioactive kick It's distracted the way you stick But love, love makes me tic I tic, tic, tic and my heart beats quick How can anything go wrong? When I'm listening to that Geiger counter song I tic, tic all day long I tic, tic, tic, why do I tic, tic? What amazing trick makes me tic, tic, tic, tic, tic I tic, tic, tic an electric tic When I feel a realistic tic The butcher and the baker tic So does the maker of the candlesticks Lawyers have their politics But love, love makes them tic So tic, tic, tic, let your heart tic, tic How can anything go wrong If you're listening to that Geiger counter song You'll tic, tic all day long Like the butcher and baker tics Like the candlestick maker tics Like the doctor and the lawyer tics Even though he's mixed up in his politics Like the merchant and the Indian chief tic tics Like the poor, like the rich man tic tic tics Digging a ditch man, the butter and egg man The poor wooden leg man, the beggar and thief All found out what its all about When its love, you can't be wrong You better listen to that Geiger counter song And tic tic all day long Tic, tic, tic, tic, tic, tic, tic, tic, tic, tic, tic, tic, tic, tic, tic, tic.

              • A Guide to Studying a Movie Magazine

                Dr Tamar Jeffers McDonald, Reader in Film Studies at the University of Kent, UK, presents a guide to studying a movie magazine. With wit and aplomb, she shows us how media historians and theorists might make use of a copy of the November 1965 issue of the American fan magazine MODERN SCREEN. The video forms part of an entry on "Studying Movie Magazines and Fan Culture", with links to dozens of further resources, at the scholarly website FILM STUDIES FOR FREE: http://filmstudiesforfree.blogspot.com/2013/10/studying-movie-magazines-and-fan.html. The above, somewhat impromptu (shaky cam!) resource came out of an interview with Jeffers McDonald carried out at the National Theatre, London, in October 2013 by Dr Catherine Grant of Film Studies For Free. An audio recording of the full interview is online here: http://filmstudiesforfree.podbean.com/2013/10/24/tamar-jeffers-mcdonald-on-researching-the-stardom-of-doris-day/. The main topic of conversation in the latter was Jeffers McDonald's new book DORIS DAY CONFIDENTIAL: HOLLYWOOD SEX AND STARDOM (London: I B Tauris, 2013). This book poses as a central question, amongst others, “Why do we assume Doris Day always plays a virgin?” In previous work (the edited collection VIRGIN TERRITORY, 2010, and an article on Rock Hudson from 2007 - see details here) Jeffers McDonald has examined what ‘playing a virgin’ might mean and consist of; now she turns her attention to how this dominant idea has been circulated, through studying the film fan periodicals which advanced and then froze Day’s stardom, a methodology she explores in detail in this video, and in the audio interview linked to above.
