Wizard of Speed and Time

Portrait of a guy who found his muse decades before YouTube would have given him a place for it to wallow in semi-obscurity. This is Mike Jittlov's (be warned, he developed this web page during the GeoCities era and hasn't updated it much since) "Wizard of Speed and Time," an odd little special-effects short he put together waaaay back in the 1970s. He turned the story into a feature film -- though it falls into the typical trap of being a film about making a film; I would rather have seen him pursue the Wizard storyline than he himself and him, but that's his film, not mine. (I've seen the full-length film. It's okay, but you're better off just watching the short. Trust me.)
