From a Dandelion

Photo taken: July 28  (well, 1 photo – when I got the idea but realized I needed more light) and July 29.  Text written July 29. I wish I had a macro something. I do not. One day, one day…

My time has come. I am nothing but a seed sphere
but the wind will carry my dedicate seeds
where they will grow
in your lawn
(and maybe your neighbours’ too.
fear not, they’re indiscriminatory)

We were never quite able to do my original project in the 10-week timeframe so I ended up with this. This is the pre-production (and goofing around) of my film that I hope to do.

Produced in association with Frames Film Project.

  • How to use a Mac
  • More Final Cut Pro 7

  • Shooting in 1080HD isn’t really worth it if you have
