“Eyes Open” (short film)

Here’s a short film collaboration I’d like to share with you.  I created the music, the great Stan Brakhage provided the quote and Sherron captured the images and edited it all together.  Hope you enjoy this abstract meditation on perception.

    That was fabulous, thank you so much for posting it. Sherron sent me a link, but with being away I hadn’t looked at it yet.
    Congrats to Sam and Sean on their award winning film too, you should post that one as well…quite the talented family. Much to be proud of.

  2. Cliff Burns

    Absolutely right: Sam and Sean’s film swept the local Oscars–well, our small film festival here in town–and I should have it ready for posting…er, as soon as Sherron shows me how.

    It really is pathetic to be such a technophobe.

    And, hey, m’dear, check it out: my novel, So Dark the Night is listed on Amazon.

    And soon, the world will be beating a path to my door. I’d better do some vacuuming…

    My search of Cliff Burns on Amazon nets me no less than 9! Count’em 9!! items..though I am not so sure that this particular gem “Sleepy Time Gal – A Wide Awake Fox Trot Song with Ukulele Accompaniment ” is yours, but, hey, I have been wrong before and you are into Garageband these days…hmmmm. I am sure it’s great music to vacuum to…

    This is very cool. Even before a baby was mentioned, I was thinking of how my friends’ infant is gradually noticing more and more of the world around him.
