This was my actual assignment, and I think it's the best of the festivids I made this year.
I had a hell of a time with the source, which I suspect was converted from film to NTSC to PAL. It was so ugly -- dull and muddy and even after I did all the cleaning and fixing I could on it, the framerate still looked kind of off. Hopefully it's not really noticeable in the vid.
I also nearly ended up defaulting because there was a massive heat wave on the day before the deadline, and all the power went out for hours, and when it finally came back I found I'd lost some of my (incredibly slowly) rendered cleaned up source. Ugh. I may have shed a single crystalline tear over it, and I was re-editing and rendering right up until the wire.
Anyway, despite all that, I'm really pleased with how this turned out. It's like the vision in my head ended up as a vid, with no translation errors along the way.
