A 90 minute film is an assemblage of 90 one minute scenes, this is the art of movie making.
The following short sequences, or scenes, will be stitched together by narration to create longer projects: 24, 45, and 90 minute films. As the sequences – scenes are finished they will be posted here for review. Currently, these video clips are part of Good Morning Alamos,
a three DVD set that looks at Alamos in the winter, spring and summer.
