Political Asylum - Work in Progress

Calling it a work in progress is actually optimistic...it's been cluttering space on at least six different PCs since 1999.  If ever completed, it will be a whopping 3 minute opus synchronized to a nice, public domain 1917 recording in my collection.

Part one, created in Autodesk Animator Pro (DOS version!!!) plays with an 1846 photo from the Library of Congress:

Part two, created in Autodesk Animator Pro for Windows 3.11 (beta version), works with multiple layers that had to be sandwiched, optical printer style, in the render that took, as I recall, about 8 minutes...

This third clip is a frame-by-frame reconstruction of some 8mm footage shot in 1973 that may be put to use as well:

An R Crumb Moment, 2000

Inspired while at the 2000 Ottawa Animation Festival.  The two were seated near the program auditorium when I arrived for registration at 8am, and they were still at the same bench when I took an afternoon break at 4.
