Wow, the video I sent off to Hollywood just a few days ago already has gotten rave reviews. The person I was trying to impress with my 20 minute masterpiece liked it so much, she immediately watched it twice.
OK, I'll admit this wasn't a studio executive -- not yet, at least. It was my three year old granddaughter, Evelyn.
But, hey, she truly does live in Hollywood. And I bet she knows some kids who have some parents who know some people who know some big-time movie types.
Yes! I'm on my way to Hollywood!
Which I already knew I was before the video was made, since my wife and I are planning to visit my daughter and her family in a couple of months. I can dream, though, of making it to Hollywood in a cinematic sense -- that's how good my "Merry Christmas, Evelyn -- 2010" is (in my own mind, and at least one three year old's).
I came up with the concept, developed the plot, acted as the male lead, handled almost all of the camerawork, and did the post-production editing with iMovie.
Pretty damn impressive, if I say so myself (no else is, aside from Evelyn, non-verbally, so it's up to me to toot my own horn -- another sign that I'm primed for a Hollywood career).
You can view my instant classic by clicking here. That'll lead you to an Apple MobileMe gallery where the video can be watched in one of three formats, tiny, small, or medium, as suits your Internet speed and viewing device.
"Merry Christmas, Evelyn -- 2010" is suitable for all ages, though the more child-like you are, regardless of your age, the more you'll like it.
Rest assured that no animals were harmed in the making of the video, even stuffed ones. This is a tale of wolves lost and found, a metaphor with multiple levels of meaning, so, like my granddaughter, you might find that multiple watchings are necessary to fully digest the meaty tofu'y message of my masterpiece.
