Our Story In 1 Or 2 Minutes

After too many days filled with dreary, depressing weather and anxiety riddled, “nails to the nub” news, it was such a nice relief to see this wonderful new video uploaded by the folks at melodysheep:

And the good news didn’t stop there, because a click on the “Inspired by” link on that video’s YouTube page brought me to this little wonder:

Our Story in 2 Minutes

Thanks for the feedback, I tried to fit a lot in but I know I missed a bit

My final project I made for my video productions class “Cutaway Productions” (Search them for their channel) at my high school. I don’t own the rights to the song or the pictures and I am not trying to claim them, I just did this video for fun and i spent many a hour on it.

    • There are some very disturbing images in there alright, with that being one of the most poignant. But inspiration is what I was aiming for. After all, if life, humanity in particular, can survive all that, then we can get through most anything! 😀
