Thank you everyone! So glad that you enjoyed this short film. It won second place in a local film contest. :)

To do the back and forth between the black and white sets and the color sets, I created one version and recorded the camera moves, then saved as a new version and recorded those. I crossfaded them in Final Cut, though that is an easy effect that can be done in other programs easily.

I have used this same technique for "aging" a character in Libertaria, by overlaying and crossfading different versions of the same camera shot of a character (at different stages of aging). The end result looks like the character has aged in a few seconds.

I am playing around with this some more. I think it's an interesting way to use the cameras.

Hope to have some more films up soon. Think I may be crossing to the dark side from composer to filmmaker. :)

Thank you everyone! This won second place in a local film contest. :) And all of the major visual effects were done in Moviestorm. I used the "heat" filter throughout to get that out-of-focus look, and tried to push the program a little bit in regards to the overall style. It was a 30 day film challenge, and this video was finishing in about three days. I am so glad you enjoy it!

Touching story, and stunning sound effects.
Never underestimate what can be achieved using Moviestorm. Although it takes time and dedication, it's all worth it at the end.

Invisible Strings
2016 Sabrina Pena Young
How can you miss a laugh you have never heard?
Or shed tears before saying hello?
How can you miss someone you never laid eyes on?
Or long to embrace a small stranger?
How could a difference of a few weeks tear apart your soul?
Or the tiniest of unseen beings change your path forever?
Invisible strings, cut by the Fates
Before a single breath was made
Lost to our world forever
Were your eyes brown like mine?
Did you have my smile?
Would you have loved music or art or words?
Millions of missing footprints
And yours was one of them, My Child.

Dedicated to the lost children of our world and Baby Y.

--
Story behind the soundtrack: female:pressure has launched an awareness and solidarity campaign for the cantons of #Rojava (located in northern Syria), where women participate on all levels of decision making and building a new society from scratch, with built-in social, racial and ethnic justice, religious freedom, ecological principles and gender equality.

With a series of music, media and sound art to listen, dance and fight to, we would like to send our love and strength to these women and spread a positive message in support of their efforts.

INVISIBLE STRINGS
Trying to understand what these women have gone through is difficult for a Westerner who has had all the trappings of a plush American life. Yet, there are many circumstances that are unique to women, the chief among them is motherhood. Invisible Strings is an attempt to bring to sound art the emotions, loss, and experiences of motherhood lost, something that joins more women than we would care to discuss, as an attempt to support these women who join together to fight an enemy and protect their families.
