Better Than Disneyland

Although the rules clearly stated NO animated or non-live action submissions , a very delightful animated one minute film ended up winning the Bianco-Rossi short film contest. I definitely had a great time competing and now plan to enter all the short film/commercial contests I can.
I learned a lot about getting as many shots as possible into one minute and how to make a commercial even though this was more of a short film competition; I'm taking on the tomato contest next!

Best of all I discovered incredible the Zeotrope Virtual studio website where, if you review four works of screen writing, photography, short stories etc, then you can submit you own and get very valuable feedback.
It's been extremely helpful and is the only resource of it's kind available on the web.
Anyway, in keeping with the spirit of great movie making here is a Ken doll defying great biblical odds to the sound of Wagner's "Flight the Valkyries" and Michael Bolton.

Hi there Amanda, loved the Ken doll video, very funny.

I got something called "Classic Pilates" and it is the Reformer series. Has this german lookin dude doing some pretty amazing stuff, half of the positions, I had never seen before. We got another one that has excercises with the balance ball.

Congrats on getting your YouTube back online, what on earth were they thinkin?

i'm definitely not here to watch ken tackle you. BUT

wasn't mozart a little on the big side? I mean, he had an appetite. wasn't svelt for sure. In other words, Coppola doesn't make a lot of sense. He may as well say, which makes more sense, the next person to buy a piano is going to be the next mozart potentially.

I like the zoetrope mag and site. it's neat. a kind of pal, an other mfaian, was published by them or he won one of their competitions for a short story. sad thing is the guy mimics the typical white male writer turned prof as so abundantly fills the lit canon. so, keep on them!
