Who hates the idea of cute, innocent, awkward and entertaining babies. Sure, people who have had to deal babies waking them up dozens of times a night may have a different perspective.
Even still, it’s difficult to find someone who hates babies altogether. Babies are pretty cool if you get to leave them in the care of their parents.
For Mother’s Day, a really unique film about babies is being released. It’s called, of course, BABIES.
The official description says this “visually stunning new movie simultaneously follows four babies around the world – from first breath to first steps. From Mongolia to Namibia to San Francisco to Tokyo, BABIES joyfully captures on film the earliest stages of the journey of humanity that are at once unique and universal to us all.”
During the holiday season, many tend to focus on spending money and buying the ‘perfect gift’, or even buying gifts just for the sake of buying gifts. This short video, through the innocence of a child, allows us to reflect on what is important in life. The act of creating and giving a ‘homemade’ gift helps us realize that Christmas is about more than consumerism. The main message: give from the heart!
The video above was one which I made from scratch in high school. Through this project, Mr. Fujiwara allowed me to realize that the proper amount of time put into planning, story-boarding and modifying the story pays off in the overall production. While this is not a perfect, final edit, it is definitely an important piece in my portfolio.
