Pogo

This guy is my current reason to illustrate. He creates these songs/videos using sound samples from films. The result is truly beautiful. Work like this is an example of what fandom can do for a piece--these films, enjoyable in their own right, are a degree more complete now, having been re-arranged. Like taking an old drawing, cutting it up, and taping the pieces back together, sometimes the act of deconstruction can open up the hidden potentials of something once thought a stagnant, unmoving piece in time.

On a related note, The Secret Garden is one of my all-time favorite flicks. If you look closely, you'll see that the whole world is a garden.

His tracks are wonderful, no? Watching the one you posted makes me want to revisit The Secret Garden (a fave from my childhood, too). Thanks for sharing!

Oh my god, I haven't seen this movie since I was like 8, but it was one of my favorites. That scene with the key, and when the boy is in the bathtub are still so memorable.
