A short film to raise awareness of Lyme Disease by Sarah Vafidis. There are some spelling errors, very sorry and some of the slides are a little short - you can always just rewind a little if you don't catch it the first time. I hope things change for us suffering from Lyme Disease soon, Australia needs to just wake up and accept the facts. Why is it they recognise ticks on dogs and not Australians? We are treated worse than our beloved animals...
I first uploaded this on YouTube and seem to be getting a good response, people are sharing it around which is amazing and I really appreciate the support. Each watch and share means one more person is educated. That makes me happy.
I put a mature content on, just to be safe.
Thank you for watching my personal journey. Sadly I am not the only one who gets treated this way.
This was for my high school's first annual film festival, and it won Best of Show!! I filmed myself painting a wolf (organs, skeleton, muscle, skin, then fur) and sped it up x4, with a little stop motion at the end. (I painted it in almost an hour, because that's as much as my camera would let me record.) The music is me preforming my rearrangement of Friedrich Burgmuller's "L'Orage." Be sure to watch his face at the end!

Jennifer Grassman is a force of nature. This talented singer-songwriter has a gift for fusing diverse elements of classical, Celtic, gothic and rock styles into a beautiful, moving genre all her own.
Pretty Girls, Jennifer Grassman's first music video, is a surreal, dark and beautiful homage to women through the centuries and the joys and dangers that their beauty has drawn into their lives. This music video (produced by TLM Productions and Zenfilm) explores the darkness and light in this hauntingly beautiful song.
Filmed in and around a 150 year old rural farmhouse outside of Richmond, Texas, Pretty Girls captures dramatic and dangerous moments in the lives of pretty girls past and present. The narrative is intercut with dynamic performance footage of Jennifer Grassman filmed in Studio A of 'The Abbey Road of the South', historic SugarHill Studios, in Houston.
The video takes the viewer on an interesting trip through time examining the way social morals affecting women have changed so drastically, yet in a way, haven't changed that much at all. The relationship between men and women of the Victorian age, the 1950's, and the present may all seem radically different, but people, at their very core haven't really changed that much.
Fashions change, technologies change, but emotions, desire, and the baser instincts have been the same for many years. All the Pretty Girls past and present are cautioned, and at the same time celebrated, in this video.
The award winning team of Executive Producer Merideth Melville and Director W. Ross Wells worked together with Dan Workman and Andrew Amelang of TLM Productions to bring this project to the screen. Pretty Girls was lensed at SugarHill by Cinematographer Wayne Forster and in Richmond by Cinematographer Raul Casares. The production was also made possible by the generous support of Panavision Houston, MC Lighting and Production Services, Gaffers Rolf Eberlein and Troy Webb, Key Grip David Zenteno, and Best Boy Michael Turrin. Still photography and art department services were provided by Everett Taasevigen. The entire show was under the command of Unit Production Manager Jarrod Gullett and First Assistant Director Tracy Jemison, both of Zenfilm.
There was a tremendous amount of work done by the artist herself and her talented family, evidence of which is apparent in every scene: art direction, costume design, and properties were all undertaken by the talented Grassman clan.
Today we are going to focus on our last muscle group of the back. The Trapezius muscle group makes up about half of the area of the back and is essential for creating strong characters. Watch this anatomy tutorial video to learn how this muscle group works. More Anatomy Tutorial @ Vectology.com [link]
Death comes to claim a little ghost girl. (He's not great with kids.)
Shadows is my senior film at MCAD, a one-person labor of love that took about a year to complete. It's a piece that draws on my own experiences in working with kids; how it can be both frustrating and fun.
A special thanks goes to my family for supporting me, my friends for encouraging me, my teachers for making me get my rear in gear, and the kids of cabin five for inspiring me. You guys are awesome.
