Whatever floats your boat...

Vimeo Weekend Challenge 9/6/2013
Create an opening scene no longer than 1 minute with " Toll Road To Consciousness " appearing somewhere in the scene.
Conceived Saturday 9/7 and shot and edited on 9/8.
As my genre I chose barely-fictional- political thriller. That's a genre, right ?

I watched the ones in your blog post first...then yours.  Yours is SO the best :-)  But I'm biased because I <3 you.

nicely done.   Your theme reminds me of this documentary.

I watched yours first, which scared thee crap out of me, btw. Dunno if I am interpreting it on a level unintended, but the twisted nature OF the marriage of sound+visuals tapped into my sensibilities. As Always, Love seeing Blanchie at that news desk.  You tapped into a very contemporary embodiment of the theme, so I say..right on!

Of the ones in the blog, Bragstad took a similar approach to yours, I thought, and altho June's Quest was so cute, I'd like to see a different one win, because the director might just be using the challenge as a vehicle for his "trailer"...afterall, i dunno if the theme of the challenge is really what's being engaged in that one.

who am I to say? I'm no film critic!! Ppffttt...

@ Marie- YEAH you are.

@ JAUN- I<3 you more. Thanks! the first one in my blog with the burlap head won 1st place and SHOCKingly, I won second. Shocking 'cause I can't believe I placed at ALL with all that talent.

Chig- Thanks man. I'm heading to see the embeds you posted.

@ TG- Thanks Beautiful. ..but after watching Chig's embeds I'm a toddler at this film making thing. 

I'm gonna' need a bigger camera *spoken in the voice of Quint from "Jaws"*.

HA!   The Blanch I know can make a bigger camera out of a pair of match sticks and a wad of chewed bubble gum.
