"A Cinderella Story" (As Told By Monkey 2)

Ever since Monkey 2 turned down a starring role in The Hungry Preacher's original motion picture "It's All in Your Head", she has regretted it like Tom Selleck watching "Raiders of the Lost Ark."  Once she saw her sister on the big screen (uh, monitor), she has regularly asked, "Can you do that with me?"

The other day, she brought me some drawings she had made that progress like a story, then narrated the story that went with it.  I asked her if she'd be willing to do it again with me filming, and she lit up.

The first take ran about 4 minutes, but was too dark (the lighting, not the content).  So a couple of days later, we went through it again in a brighter room--and it ran about 11 minutes.  Doh!

So off the editing room I went.  This is the trimmed down version, and it's still about as long as the original album track of Bruce Springsteen's "Backstreets," so grab some popcorn.  I didn't cut TOO many details of the actual story, so you should be able to follow.

  1. This was Awesome! I love the complete lack of a prince in this story. Its all about enough magic to look a little more beautiful. Ain't that the truth.
