High School 8mm Animated Film Gets New Life on YouTube

Fun with toy cars! Okay, not since 1978, when a friend and I made the original version of this stop-motion film in High School. We entered the original movie in our high school's film festival. We made a "sound track" on an audio cassette. We started and stopped both the movie projector and cassette player in a futile attempt to keep things in sync. Unfortunately, it was not very effective, but the audience still applauded loudly.

For this digital remake, I replaced our old funky hand-drawn "Emerald Productions" logo and titles with some fancy CGI graphics, added a 3D computer animated title sequence, new music and sound effects. Enjoy!
