I was on my honeymoon and I drew a fish with a big mouth on the shower door. I thought is would be fun to see this fish sing the last bit of "What a Wonderful World". The song itself was first recorded by Louis Armstrong in 1968 and it was written by Bob Thiele (who, at the time, went by George Douglas) and George Weiss.
This Project was just ment to used as an animation exercise. I wanted to figure out some technics to help me with a 4 minute animated short that I am working on.
Yes yes, I understand that I have indeed posed my Student film, "Two by Two", on my blog before... however I have been reviewing my online uploads and it occurred to me that I don't really use my hotmail account anymore. Not that there's anything wrong with that. It's just, I now use Gmail. The ONLY problem that I face now is what do I do with my old YouTube account [the one that I set up when my email address read something like (but not literally) firstname.lastname@example.org?]
This all had come to the surface this week and here's why: I was just going to upload a new 30 second animation exercise I recently completed (still to come). I went on my old YouTube account and found that I had messages waiting for me from TWO YEARS AGO! Like, personal ones, from creative developers and stuff! LAME... SAUCE! I felt like an idiot. So now I need to streamline this online stuff.
Some people may say, "Dude, just get a Vimeo accunt, they rock." And to those people I would say, "Thanks I have one of those but I am only able to upload, like 500 MG a week or something... and I don't want to pay $10 a month... not yet anyway. I'm still kinda on a spending freeze."
Other might say, "Hey bra, just make a new YouTube account through Gmail." And to THOSE people I would say, "Thanks, but what about my first account? It has almost 4,000 views and I am vain."
I deliberated long and hard and have come up with a solution.
I am going to upload to Vimeo AND YouTube! Streamline!
I'll keep the original posting of Two by Two up there because, you know, gotta reach 4,000, but for all my new stuff I'll have it up on my new YouTube and Vimeo.
This was a long and somewhat unnecessary post just to say, I am reposting Two by Two AND it has been slightly improved for your viewing pleasure.
