collaboration and commitment

The Oxford American Dictionary defines collaboration as

“working jointly, especially in a literary or artistic production.”

It defines commitment as

“the process or an instance of committing oneself.”

And committing as

“pledging or binding oneself to a certain course”

Something different for today–a movie. 

This summer one of my sons, Bobby Martin, was in Paris taking a film class.  I had the opportunity to collaborate with him on a short film.  I had the easy part–throwing out ideas.  He had the hard part–doing all the work.  He selected the music and mapped the scenes.  He did the filming and the editing.  Nevertheless, he graciously added my name to the credits.   The film is two minutes and forty seconds.  Turn up the volume and enjoy.
