I Couldn't Help Myself...

Catherine J. Gardner mentioned making a trailer for a piece of flash fiction...so I took my favorite short-short ("The Ox-Cart Man", a 700 worder from Northern Haunts) and made this "trailer":

very nice. you and cate are such trend setters (her for the beautiful short story trailer and u for the speaking). i would follow said trend, but yeah. not so good with the computer. can blog/check email/and write. video making not one of my skills.

Catherine J Gardner said...

WOW! That is far too cool and far too professional. I am in awe.

Samantha - thanks...I've been a big computer nerd for too long

Cate - thanks...years of wasting time with video and music mixing software, I'm afraid.

Great job. the images worked really well with the darkness of the narrator's tone. Also, I believe the Ox Cart Man is in my 10 Favorite NH stories.

Jamie Eyberg said...

Very cool. the imagery worked wonders with the spoken word and left me wanting more.

Aaron Polson said...

Thanks, Barry. It was one of my favorites to write.

Jamie - We all want to leave folks wanting more, right?

Robert said...

Ex-cell-ent. Seriously, that's great.

Rebecca Nazar said...

Well done. *shudder*

Aaron Polson said...

Cheers, Robert, Rebecca.

I want to do one of those! But I can barely answer emails, let alone make pretty movies ; )

Carrie Harris said...

Sooo awesome. Yet another reason why I wish I didn't sound like a 12year old when I talk.

Marvelously creepy! I love it!

Aaron Polson said...

Oh, Natalie - you could easily master the art of the slide show.

Carrie - the beauty of the 'net: no one has to ever know.

K.C. - thanks. I like creepy.

Very chilling, and great scenery.

Very cool. Amazing we have more computing power at our fingertips than was used to put a man on the moon.

Aaron Polson said...

Thanks, Danielle.

Brendan - that is a very scary thought.
