This is how we make a short ten second montage scene using DAZ Studio.

In DAZ Studio, under the parameters tab, we set the active camera's "point at" selection to her head so it keeps her head exactly in the center of the frame at all times. The director, Stanley Kubrick, used this technique in the film "The Shining" when he kept the eye of Jack Nicholson exactly in the center of the frame while he was going up the stairs and down the hall. It keeps the audience's attention focused on the main subject, even in jump cuts so the audience doesn't have to jerk their vision all over the screen, but concentrate on the subject while using peripheral vision for surrounding movements.

This is a song I made back in 1998 with a MTV computer music program while I was sitting in the house on a stormy night listening to the monotonous rhythm of rain beating on the tin roof over my back porch or patio and occasional random thunder claps. I have long since lost that program and forgot about my amateur attempt at creating music until Nessa mentioned that she liked to listen to thunderstorm sounds or ambient music. The songs I made had been transferred when I got new computers; I found them through a search. I put the video from old clips of Lammy just to fill space while the so-called music played. I have been thinking of getting a new version of a music making program because I can't put any of my videos on YouTube when I use published music.

Everyone has their own concept of reality and as it says, "Is your truth the same as mine?" Manifesting a reality is just tricking ourselves or others into believing our truth is right which in fact is a delusion or self-delusion, thus the Magician uses trickery and deceit to make us believe what he manifests on stage is real and true. Just like Icy's quote at the top of Doug's blog says words are a tool of deception which is shown by Doug's blog in that each reader has their own view of what the word means to them. I grew up believing Pluto was a planet, and that Possum was spelled with an 'O" on the beginning, but now is not. Meanings, Truth and Reality are Fashion and Hula Hoops. So when Lammy says "I don't know what that word means." she is being humble and very basic in that she is not being swayed by other people's ideas of what they believe reality and truth is; and in a sense "ignorance is a bliss" Believing that what you think is right and the truth is the basis of paranoia. Seeing the flickering shadows on the cave wall may not really be what is behind you.
