How it all winds up…

Wesley and Cathttps://vimeo.com/57715168

Here is a video-poem, a reminiscence about my family’s collection of mechanical toys, made during a 3-day digital storytelling workshop at UMBC.

I’ve always wondered if my family’s collection of wind-up and other kinetic toys that we took out every Christmas had an impact on my love of movement, and animation. My brother and my cousin (whose family also had a collection) also studied animation.

I love the old photos of my Grandfather Wesley Tomlinson as a toddler in Nantmeal, PA. The one with the cat is especially intriguing. On the right side of the frame is a shadowy figure in a dress — his mother?
