3) a strong sexual or romantic feeling for someone
4) the state or capacity of being acted on by external agents or forces

Create a film/write a short story about your interpretation of passion.

Online Name: Friday@2
Studio Name: 2Sense Productions
Film Title: Hush Preface (Passion or Pastime) and Movie
Film Length: 5 minutes 58 seconds
Film Location:
Film Description: If you ask yourself "is this really worth countless hours of my life" the answer is always "no." You don't edit 30 versions of one brief animation and spend 6 hours recording a scraping noise because other people will care, or even because you still trust your premise - you keep going because you started the damn thing and you have an unhealthy compulsion to solve tedious "creative" problems in the repeatedly dashed hope that some day you''ll feel a sense of completion, when in reality you just have to stop, again, and feel empty until the next loony obsession takes over your life.
