Weekend Video Project Pokes Fun at "Art Films"

My friend Bill Boes and I shot this in a couple hours one afternoon in San Francisco. This should have been nominated for something!

It just happened to be the same day as the Oakland Hills fire which was raging across the bay in the background. The smoke added mood to our shots although at the time we didn't know the extent of the fire's destruction. I edited this together just recently as my first YouTube upload. Shooting the scenes for this was a spontaneous weekend activity with no real intention or purpose, other than to have fun with a video camera and to perhaps, poke a little fun at inscrutable experimental art films.
