Thanks for sharing these movies, they're amazing.

Would you have a tool to recommend to build a kinetic type movie or presentation?

Hello Garr, hello fellow readers, the higher resolution flash-version is still out there. You can find the file "merryxmas.swf" at "http://nervousrat.com/merryxmas.swf".

Regards, and a merry christmas to you and your families,

Thanks for the link. Seems awfully complex...


It's a great clip and I fully support it's intentions but does anyone else find the numbers on water hard to believe ?

'Only' $10 Billion to fix drinking water WORLDWIDE? That seems incredibly low considering how big a problem this is.

Also, US450 Billion per year on Xmas in the US ? Granted I have not been to the US at Xmas, but that equates to $1,500 per man woman and child for the entire population ... really ?
