Watch Me 16mm

I'm taking a film class this semester. yeah - film, not video. I've never worked with film before and its a little wild. I thought I'd show you my first creation. It's based on a funny little children's book called "Watch me", in which the character (a young child) begs her parents to watch as she slides, jumps, rides a bike, etc. At the end there is a bike crash. I have changed the story a bit in places. Well - ok it really isn't the same story, but it was fun anyways.

I love it! Great transfer. I'm sorry I screwed up the lighting :(

Funny how the film format (and the black and white) makes it look like it's from the 60s.

Yeah it is funny. Although I think the huge sunglasses and retro shoes help the cause a bit...

Great footage, Serra. However, I don't approve of the violence toward the light bulbs. Who are you - Sam Peckinpah?
