Prelude To A Sneeze

Here is yet another project I had due that I had to churn out during this amazingly busy, art filled few weeks.
This one turned out pretty decent and I received a very solid and flattering critique on it. 

Original idea was to film a sneeze at an amazingly high frame rate, slow it down a few hundred times and play it out over the course of five minutes. I decided to shoot a test at 24fps and found that the moments before the sneeze were much funnier and interesting than the sneeze in itself. 

Youtube messed with the aspect ratio and normally I would complain about this but I'm sure there's a way around it that I am just too lazy to figure out. Also, Youtube is free. One day, I will upload a beautiful HD file that will look as it does on my computer. One day.

Oh, one last thing. There was no intention on using this footage so I didn't use a mic or even peek at my levels. For full effect, speakers/headphones are suggested.
