After me there will be ten more doing what I have done. I’m not alone.


The short Trailer at Vimeo.

The long trailer



Two scribbles out of the NFB’s McLaren Workshop IOS app. I am disappointed that it’s so locked into Vimeo, because for some reason iMovie just spins it’s wheels trying to read the film, which shows up as a long black strip of credits, and the films won’t play in Quicktime Player. I would like to extract the 16 or so frames of the black cat and work with them. And I can’t precisely cut them out to even splice them together again.


It’s a great app if you want to learn about Norman McLaren, and work in his style and technique. Lousy if you want to work with your consequent workshop output.

The Horse’s Mouth

August 16, 2012

I saw The Horses Mouth as a movie in my senior year of high school. I had read the novel, given as a gift by my cousin, a corrupting and influential gift, while I was in public school. There was much I didn’t understand then.

And those are indeed, magnificent feet.

Crackle presents the movie, streaming, as an option. You must download Crackle for your iPad, if you watch only this movie.’s_Mouth

The Levitating Monk

August 27, 2011

Magician Dan White travels to Nepal to learn some of the magical secrets of the Mysterious East. Beautiful exotic landscapes. Folkloric story elements with people fooling each other over power, mystery, magic and  illusion. Completely unbelievable, as the narrator ironically speaks – for he is a professional magician – yet still completely delightful.

Certainly you could watch this only for the flavour of the selected views of easily accessible Bhaktapur, and the romantic colour of the mountains and trails and be still very well entertained. The story elements are extra, and just too much fun. Lamont Cranston would be proud.

Discovery Channel’s “The Supernaturalist” is Super Stupid at The Skeptical Teacher has opinions.

I’ll say it again.

I caught this review at New Scientist: for the film Home. 90 minutes. Free. In the mold of Kooyoniskaatsi. The images are stunning. Here’s the You Tube link:

Please watch it.
