Wargoon Flishe Watch

including the Pome of the Day Project

Wednesday, April 12, 2006


This is Dr. Hubert Zork and I must tell you about the animation activities of one fictional animator Akre.

He is finding only a few stray minutes or an hour or so at the end of his day the last couple days to further his work on his animated feature, Wargoon Flishe. He has spent a couple days making his way slowly down page 40 of his now 52 page script. It is just two paragraphs, but has involved several compositions and many movements.

Work and other volunteer activities are pushing their way in. He is doing some animation work in his movie theatre set, but there was also a two day transit conference where he did many interviews. He must find some time to do some work on the public transit public access show he does, and that will take much time away from animation.

Last night he saw a reading by the author T.C. Boyle. He drew a few sketches of the author, and got a chance to speak briefly with him during the book signing.

Akre has started work on the fourth and final section of his film. He is thinking about walking and biking and transit, and how he will cut these interviews together. He might even write a news story about this conference he went to. He wants to think about animation too, but his mind can only take so much, and his hours can only take so much.

With much exhaustion, I must now give to you the Pome of the Day Project.

the people you know
that you never met
they call out your name
as if it were flame
and then you forget

the places you've been
that you never were
each doorway and stair
escapes in the air
and physics is blur

the person you are
but you never knew
your face and your nose
too strange to suppose
how can this be you

Written in sincerity and with fingers,
Dr. Hubert Zork
