Snow Daze

Writer's Thoughts
It happens every year and it still catches me by surprise. The annual 'big one.' The monster snow storm that leaves one in a blanket of confusion, both literally and figuratively. When I heard the storm was coming, I prepared for a snow daze. That's when I can't work because I'm mesmerized by the falling snow...Wow. Falling snow...Falling...Snow.

I finally managed to get back on track toward the end of the week...Recap last week. I thought about the term 'film noir,' and felt I needed to clarify. "To Dance On Air" has a look and feel of noir, but does not follow in the genre. One reason, I'm a bit free-flowing when it comes to genre. Although, perhaps, it is somewhat poetic. I also gave thought to "retro." "RetroVision" is my way of having fun with the decades. But this is 'art swirl'd.'So it's retro with a twist. And, musically speaking, it's a collide-o-scope of past and present. I do think there are many films, music, fashions worth revisting.

How deep is "To Dance On Air?" Deep is not a subject I dive into intentionally. My heart has to be in it. Animation has come a long way. It's not just for kids anymore. Still, I like to keep it level. I once did a serious-themed animated story and my friends wanted to know if I was alright. Gotta love em. Those sweet fixers. I, like many other writers do write from experiences. The song that opens to "RetroVision" in the first video, I did compose after a very sad break-up. A little behind the scenes.

I've got a new video clip coming up next week. Meanwhile, please enjoy this animated still from "To Dance On Air." Thanks for dropping by. You snapped me out of my snow daze.
