"Flowers Are Forever " - Short Film
Internet Premiere!

Ok - I know, I know the blinking lights are cheesy but I thought it was appropriate for this post. You see its the Internet premiere of my first attempt at filmaking. This was made back Boston in 1996. It hasn't seen the light of day since! (And for good reason) All we had to work with was a super 8mm camera. At the time my thinking was I didn't want to shoot around my dorm room. So, why not have some fun and try to re-create a silent picture. I also saw it was fitting to premiere "Flowers Are Forever" because just like vlogging, Silent films were the beginning of something great!

This is occurring in spite of the growing body of research that documents the benefits of music education and some overwhelming public support. An astounding 95 percent of Americans believe that music is a key component in a child’s well-rounded education, according to a 2003 Gallup Survey. (CBS News)
