This is our studio site. Among lots of other things, we run Field Notes Brand,
go there right now and spend lots of money. Thanks.

a weekend contest Crash Ballet 3

We provided a link to a filmstrip from the early 50's called "Brothers and Sisters" and asked people to rearrange it, edit it, add new substitles, or whatever else they felt like doing. We received dozens of entries and although this time out was a bit of a mixed bag, we did find some diamonds in the rough.

The judges were the entire crew. Screening the entries took place over at JC's computer, with the judges assigning a score to each film, one through five, best to worst.

Our winner of a Jewelboxing 100 pack is Paul Dow. Our three runners up are Jason Ruby, Wakiza Gamez, and the mysterious, single-named Francist. We're hosting the whole lot of them here.
