I was teaching myself how to a use a program manipulating photos with photoshop and motion. I used and edited all my own pictures. Some may think it's cheezy, but I love the thought of magic surrounding us - if only we'd stop to look a little harder. :)
I wish I could explain so much of it... I used to play by myself as a kid all the time... I read so many books about fantasy and folklore - first novel was in grade 3. I was very sensitive to things around me and have had so many crazy experiences - from lucid dreaming to even a totem vision! That's where the bird comes from.
I would (and still) dream about magic everywhere... that vibe you feel while walking in a beautiful forest - the anticipation like words on the tip of your tongue or that movement in the corner of your eye. Then we all grow up... but I still feel it. I remember a few years back thinking about how much I wish there were really a bit of magic out there when a little voice suggested that I could create it myself with the writing of stories or with the tools on my computer!
When my grandmother was on her deathbed - she was describing little lights around her all the time... so I thought of her when I created the ending of this video.
Kinda like after all in all is done... you come back to where you started - and that "thing" you felt as a child never left you afterall... :).
