Several years ago a couple high-school friends and I were fooling around with a video camera and produced a potentially interesting (but ultimately abortive) short movie called "Strobe Junkies." Now, thanks to Blake Dinsdale's newly launched design website, you can view the opening credits (concocted digitally by Blake after the actual filming). Click on "Motion" (far right) and select "Strobe Junkies." QuickTime required.

The "plot" of this particular piece of garage cinema, if I recall correctly, involves a psychiatrist (played by me) who discovers that some of his patients are able to achieve an endorphin "high" by staring into a strobe lamp. I think it's to Dinsdale's considerable credit that he makes this rather lame premise seem interesting.
