my nutracker contest entry!

i submitted an entry to sf ballet's magical memories nutcracker video contest. the gist of the contest is to submit a video, via youtube, that:
  • reenacts or re-imagines a magical scene from nutcracker OR create a video depicting your favorite magical nutcracker memory.
  • contains at least one nutcracker character.
  • is 65 seconds long (reason: that’s one second for every year nutcracker has been a holiday tradition in america, since sf ballet first staged it on christmas eve 1944).
  • mentions or displays “san francisco ballet” visually in the video.
  • is creative and/or funny--"innovative characters, dancing, scenery, costumes, and props will be judged favorably." "featuring san francisco settings or a san francisco landmark in your video in some way will be judged favorably."
  • is tasteful and family friendly.
my favorite part of "nutcracker" is always act II, the land of the sweets section, so my video is an ode to all that is sugar, spice, and everything nice about san francisco (at least that would fit into 65 seconds). music, used with permission, by christmas at the devil's house (thanks, john!)

tour stops include tcho, the ferry building, i preferiti di boriana, miette patisserie, recchiuti confections, bart, mission pie, tartine bakery, saratoga chocolates, hot cookie, the f-car, miette confiserie, and the war memorial opera house.
