One prof's feeble attempt at movie-making

This is all John Mollenkamp's fault. He posted a link on Twitter to xtranormal.com, a free site that makes movies out of text you type. Well, there is a bit more to it than that, but not a lot.

I was in the middle of designing a workshop for law review apprentices when I read John's tweet. And I had reached a very dull topic: How to cite one volume of a multi-volume treatise.

So I made a movie, and being completely shameless, will post it here. And remember, blame John. But from this point, I can only get better, right?

Love it, love it, love it! I think this is just fantastic! It's so light-hearted and fun. I can definitely imagine using this as a way to break up dry material. Thanks for the inspiration!

What a fun and creative way to present dry material!

its cool.
I've also got a number of scripts that i would like to make great movies that are attractive and good to watch.
Any ideas of how I can make it please?


Response: Thanks. This is a pretty simple animation program. If you want to do more, you'll have to find a better mentor than I. (cmb)
