As long as we're on the topic of my limitless talents, I dug out an 11-year old video tape with some work from my high-school days stored on it. I was king of the new school TV system - after one class in video production at TPAS and nobody to influence my work, I was able to do some pretty cool stuff with limited resources. Most of what I did were "commercials" for dances, or help others with class projects, but this video (sorry, no low bandwidth - try this) is probably the best work I did. It was for the Homecoming game, in the year that Sidney High School made Sports Illustrated for having five (and eventually seven) consecutive state football titles. I filmed them all, and did little overviews like this one, but this 2-minute snippet made the rounds at school board meetings & other places, as proof that there's value in supporting the school's multimedia arts. I don't know what happened - hopefully, they got some real editing equipment. I did this, and all my other edits, using only two VCRs and quick fingers. Pretty much the whole tape of my work has gone bad; this clip has only one jump, where the tape drops out for a moment, but the rest stands on it's own well.
heh, that film is a study in the effects of dramatic music.

Yeah; I've thought that creating effective, unique soundtracks was one of my strong points. That tune is "Woodpeckers from Mars" by Faith No More.
