Fiddles and Spirits: My College Boy's 2 min Film Assignment

This was my son's first assignment for his Film Production 1 class. This assignment was another where he could not use sync sound from the camera. All sound in this film was added in post production. Along with this requirement he had to pick three papers randomly from a pile that had some kind of noun on it that he had to incorporate into his 2 minute film. The three nouns that he got were: "A dirt road", "a has-been musician", and "a stuffed doll". With these three requirements this is the idea that came to him. 

I remember thinking it strange that he was asking me where he might find a stuffed devil holding a miniature violin... in SEPTEMBER!! LOL! He ended up getting the devil on EBAY and I think the violin came from the thrift store. I was pretty amazed that he was able to find them. I guess I convinced him to go ahead and post it even though he said it need more polishing... because it showed up! 

Please watch and enjoy and feel free to comment and critique. I will forward those to him. He welcomes them. OH YEAH!! He's the guy that walks by holding hands with the girl. The fiddler is his room mate that doesn't play the fiddle! I thought he was an AWESOME FAKER!! ;D

If you'd like to know more about him, I did a post about him for his birthday HERE... and his other video, which is quite funny... is towards the bottom of that post.
OK, this one is my son's creation...

but since I helped in HIS "creation"...

LOL Sweet! Loved the video :-))) What a great start to a Friday morning. Thanks so much for sharing it. I'll bet he had a blast making it and then seeing the finished product. I love how he changes the camera to show close up of the devil and then at the end shows that he turned around. I am already a follower, love your photos and stories. You can find me over at http://www.theskinnyonmini.blogspot.com and http://www.janetsjournal-inherpeace.blogspot.com Have a great weekend! ~Blessings, Janet

Waving from the HOP! Wow, loved this post. It's kind of a play on the Charlie Daniel's band. So cute. Audience of one anyone. And I'm glad he walked away from the temptation.

Like the ending - very ominous!

Yes, the ending was excellent. Thought maybe the devil might run up on him. He's so talented, Holly. You should be proud. :)
