dandelion By Gina Miller

I created this animation for submission into the film2music contest. The competition concept is to make a video to accompany of the music selections from the CD "CINEMATIC" by composer Kubilay Uner. I chose his lovely "When You Fly Towards The Sun, Who Rises?"; as I listened I was inspired. The contest has ended and while I didn't win, the knowledge I gained was well worth the experience.

The original movie was very large (16GB) so I needed to compress it, or squash down/lessen the data for it to be small enough for you to download. So if you select the smaller size animations—granted you will have a quicker download but the quality will be compromised. I am including two larger versions which I most greatly prefer and highly recommend—if you can wait just a mere few minutes, it is worth it to download one of the larger animations.
The animation isn't done until you see the end credits. Turn up your volume!

My recommended versions, the larger higher quality animations. These ones will take longer to download.
Click here to download the movie (Quicktime 25.6 MB) or click here to download (Windows Media Video 17.4 MB).

The smaller lower quality versions.
Click here to download (Windows Media Video 7.21 MB) or click here to download the movie (Quicktime 6.38 MB).

Tips for downloading internet movies: If you see only white, this is normal it means it's still downloading (even though you will see "done" in the lower corner of your screen, hang in there!) Also ~ if when you download the movie it appears "sticky" and/or the music breaks up, your movie is still buffering, play it a second time and it will have downloaded fully and play correctly.
