Carrier

January 17, 2018

During his 2016 election campaign, Donald Trump won a victory when he convinced the Carrier company to keep 800 manufacturing jobs in Indiana instead of moving them to Mexico. But Carrier has laid off some of those Indiana workers due to outsourcing and automation.

July Flame

January 13, 2018

“July Flame” by Laura Viers. The song is named after a type of peach.

Laura Veirs:

“..the video has 1,804 individual images in it. …. The fireworks were made from over 180 individual peaches. The puppets are painted paper glued to a backing. The matches are one of my favorite things in the video. I loved drawing the cover. The puppets/set took 3 weeks to design and build. Shooting took 2 weeks. Watch for cameo performances from the Phantom Mountain chicken and paper clip. The desk is my Grandmas old kitchen table.”
