Explore: To see … or not to see

by | Friday, April 10, 2009

I have been working with my kids on a series of short videos around the themes of Explore, Create, Share. These three words were used in my video mashup of a commercial (see the commercial AND my mashup here). Original music for this series was created by my cousin, Sonny Mishra.

The first of the set is now ready and up on YouTube. Check out Explore: To see .. or not to see.

(Other videos created by me, with our without my kids, can be seen here.)
