As per @cogdog’s moving tribute and prompt, I am playing along with the crowdsourced Augmented Reality music video project, which will be produced by a class of 20 students on the Tokyo campus of Temple University.
The sorrow I am trying to convey is about the erosion of childhood; both through the passage of time but also through circumstance. I wish I had been able to protect my daughter from the sadness and anger in the world. I know that there are millions of children without clean water, shelter and enough food to eat, so my daughter is extremely lucky to have been born in North America. On the other hand, she has had more than her fair share of adversity compared to her peers. She is a wise soul in an 11 year old body.
I had a bit of a problem getting the videos off my iPhone and didn’t bother to check that the aspect ratio was wrong until too late. I should know better so I’m quite disappointed with myself.
Also, the AR printout was lucky enough to travel with me for 2 weeks, so it got a bit dog-eared near the end. I hope that doesn’t modify the AR ability.
I wonder about the positioning too. I’m very interested to see what works best.
Anyway, there’s a few scenes to add to the movie. I hope they find any bit of it useful (for better or worse). I’m definitely looking forward to watching the progress.
