the story

In today's report I shall give some small details about the story that the fictional Mr. Akre is now animating. I am the fictional character that he created to create these reports. The story is called "Wargoon Flishe," and is an abreviated version of his novel "The Epic of Wargoon Flishe."

His story is based on the ancient legend. He feels the need to retell the ancient legend because it is an unknown legend. It is an unknown legend because nobody knows about it, but he knows about it, and thus he must tell it.

The novel on which the animated cartoon is to be based was written by Akre in late 2002 and early 2003, and then revised and amended at other times past that time. It was a 175 page novel when he confronted it for animation.

His first step was to cut it down. He figured a minute of animated film per page of text, so he cut it down to about 67 pages. But, after animating for slightly more than a month and a half he has created nearly 30 minutes of movie running time but is only on page 20 of the script, so more cutting will be in order to make the usual animated feature running time of somewhere around 70 to 80 minutes.

That is enough about him. Now about me, the exceptional Dr. Zork. Last night I attended a film called "Los Angeles Plays Itself," which was a film essay about the depiction of Los Angeles in films. The long documentary had an arc that took it from car crashes to the people of the city who are pedestrians and bus riders, the Los Angeles people you rarely see in movies, tho there have been some small seen pictures. To celebrate that arc, my bus connections home last night were spotless, and I was able to bus from Lake and Lyndale to my home in Northeast Minneapolis in 35 minutes, a nearly inhuman feat of strength.

Here is the pome of the day project, a jazz lyric that may be about that film last night.

is that the film
that brightens
beside the ocean
or the one with
walking truth
bus riding real

Written in sincerity and with fingers,
Dr. Hubert Zork
