  • Well, if you are just joining us ... ha, ha ... that is good ... cause this is the beginning. Our initial goal was to combine live action footage and animation with a piece of soundtrack. The live action "bert base jump" footage was shot in New Mexico... the soundtrack recorded in Philadelphia ... the internet hub is in yet a third location.

    So, we've moved the live sight with added cgi (computer graphic images), to the sound, and combined them together. (The live action shot was supplemented with cgi images to blend the theme of the "hole" into the overall project. The completed "rush" was then placed on the web server machine. The final step of it's internet journey will be to your computer.

    The piece of the soundtrack we started to experiment with is called The Ride. It is about that feeling you get when you have the guts to pass through a barrier -- like riding a wave. Sometimes you don't plan on passing through the barrier. You just let your defenses down and go with your gut.

    If you click here, you will download a 12M file of the entire video. (WARNING! this will take about an hour and a half with a 14.4 modem.)
