The short 'I Have Your Heart' animation I made with mollycrabapple & kimboekbinder is in an online film festival and has a chance at some serious prize money. Like $70,000 worth of serious! Money that we could use to make more films, more art, more animations. But we need your votes to help to score this sweet art-cash! With only 11 hours left to go, it’s time to rally the troops and make a push for the top ten! http://www.viewster.com/movie/1262-17529-000/i-have-your-heart

"I Have Your Heart," a short film by me (Kim Boekbinder) and Molly Crabapple and Jim Batt, is in an online festival with serious prize cash. To have a chance at it we need to be ranked in the top 10. We’re currently at #25. So close! To help us make it to the top ten, go watch and "like" the film, to have your "like" count you have to watch and "like" a few others (try to find some lower on the list than us - plenty of really great short films on there.)

Watch and like here: http://www.viewster.com/movie/1262-17529-000/i-have-your-heart

I can’t remember ever asking anyone to “vote” for anything I’ve done for one of these online competitions, but this one is real, for real money, and we worked so hard on this film, it would be super handy to have money to make more art. 

Thanks to all of you who have been voting and sharing. You have my heart, or I have yours, or both, back and forth. 4ever. <3 <3

Famous on the Internet

An excerpt from my Medium essay: Famous on the Internet

Andy Warhol said, in the future everyone would be famous for 15 minutes.

I’m living in the future and fame is weirder than that.

Instead of 15 minutes worth of concentrated fame we’re getting the same amount of fame, but spread over a much longer time period. In the right light, from the right angle, some of us even look “famous.”

Stellar Alchemist by The Impossible Girl AKA Kim Boekbinder

Not only is this song really, really good, it’s about stars being the crucibles of the elements that make up our bodies and our planet and everything else, and the science is on point (like how iron is the largest element a star can make until it explodes, and then we get stuff like gold).

Lyrics:

I’ll take two elements and fuse them at my core
As the pressure builds I’ll fuse more and more
Ever heavier the elements do grow
And I will spread them when I buckle and explode

I am a stellar alchemist, my heart is an iron fist
I am a stellar alchemist, my heart is an iron fist
It goes boom boom boom, it goes boom boom
It goes boom boom boom, it goes boom

And when I go you will get gold, you will get gold
And when I go you will get gold, you will get gold

Born in a nebula, a ball of burning hydrogen
The gravity of my embrace, keeping all the tension
Billions of years of the fiercest glow
A blinding shaft across the universe when I do explode

I am a stellar alchemist, my heart is an iron fist
I am a stellar alchemist, my heart is an iron fist
It goes boom boom boom, it goes boom boom
It goes boom boom boom, it goes boom

Oh, and did I mention that the beat is the oscillation of the star HR 3831 converted into sound?!
