This video was part of an assignment as part of Pepperdine’s Online Masters Program in Educational Technology (OMAET). While waiting to shoot the “research” video,” we came up with the idea and shot this video. When we were done shooting both videos I edited the “research” video while Sissy edited this one. This video is a perfect example of spontaneous creativity. The “flying through the air” footage was created when I accidentally left the camera rolling while I was changing positions for the next shots. Sissy was able to take that footage and with the Charlotte Church track she gave us a “Furby’s eye-view” of his own demise. We were hoping to follow this video up with a “Furby Autopsy” video, but as with the “Behind the Scenes” videos, it will have to wait for another life time(?). JBB
