I live in Anderson Indiana and go to school at Ball State University, which is about twenty miles away, where I study video production and film. During the past four years I have spent up to five hours a week driving to and from school or work. This provides me with plenty of time to listen podcasts, including The Vinyl Café with Stuart McLean. Yesterday I was listening to, and quite enjoying, The Vinyl Café from October 31, 2009. It featured the music of Great Lake Swimmers. During the song There Is A Light there is a magnificent musical build accompanied by the subtle sound of a xylophone or some type of bell. At this exact moment I drove under a flock of birds escaping the inclement central Indiana weather. The image of the birds against the bleak sky combined with the music was enough to give me an overwhelming warm sensation.

The image moved me to turn around my car, and record the birds on my point and shoot digital camera that records scratchy digital video. Knowing that the rest of my drive to work was pretty scenic I decided to use the spare time to record a music video for the song. Coincidently I ended up late to work where I finished the bulk of the editing.

Often when I listen to The Vinyl Café Im inspired by the music and stories. As an inspiring filmmaker/writer I always look to Stuarts stories for a little education on story telling and character development. The Story Exchange, a segment from the show featuring stories from listeners, leaves me wanting to adapt the tales into short film screenplays.
