Scotiabank AIDS Walk for Life: The Vanishing

How many steps will it take?

On September 13, 2009, thousands of people took to the streets of Toronto for the Scotiabank AIDS Walk for Life. This video was shot that day, as it happened. No special effects. Just chalk.

Nicely done. A different take of the AIDS approach.

I'm here doing this, but feel I should be there doing that. But to do that, I have to be doing this. Does this make sense or do I have to explain that?

Well, the thorough understanding and the local effect might've been questionable, but who xxxxxxx cares...the idea goes beyond perception, it is literally four-dimensional and the video done is so much worth the effort as a document of this. And it didn't cost a dime I guess:)
