My wife recently bought me a palm-sized video camera, the Kodak "PlayFull".
Her timing is impeccable--Kodak just announced they're seeking bankruptsy protection. That venerable old firm getting left in the technological dust by its competitors. Fighting for its survival. How the mighty have fallen...
But it's a lovely little thing, this camera, the very epitome of simplicity (mandatory when you're dealing with an idiot like me).
Spent the afternoon giving it a test run. I'm taking a break after three weeks of murderous editing on my western novel (now nearing completion). Had it up to here with the printed word, to tell you the truth, and so here's a link to the one-minute film I shot and edited this afternoon. The short-short is titled "Suspicious Mind" and it's based on a prose poem I wrote more than 20 years ago.
Drop me a line, once you've had a chance to view it.
Does it pass muster? What think you?
