tree hug

Thought you might like to see the hugs I have so far. Still need people and baby. I think I am going to scratch the blob but I am going to post it here anyway. Looks like they get cut off a bit in the blog post but you get the picture.

future: the good ancestor principal

i think i want to be a futurist now...

The "Good Ancestor Principle" is based on a challenge posed by Jonas Salk:
...the most important question we must ask ourselves is, “Are we being good ancestors?” Given the rapidly changing discoveries and conditions of the times, this opens up a crucial conversation – just what will it take for our descendants to look back at our decisions today and judge us good ancestors?

Hug / Future

Hug footage. It came out ok, but I think there are things that could be added which I would love to discuss on Wed. I am writing them here so I don't forget.

-drawing frames
-additional hugging establishers possible forms: new footage/ photos/ drawings. Possible topics: Tree hug, 2 people hug. People hug animal. panda. snake hugs you. People hug object. You hug bushman at Fisherman's wharf, animal cuddle, people hug baby, hug a box, hug asparagus, hug bicycle. ...
-technical 1: card/info integration for Michelle Blade. Group Hug Artist Organizer.
-technical 2: Sound, most of the sound is disposable, meaning I think music would enhance the content more. I have music ideas...


1. What do you think the future will be like?
2. What do you want the future to be like?
3. What is your timeframe for the future?
