  • Short Summary

    Strange spooky shapes are produced by adding dyes to water.

  • Description

    Strange black shape appears at the bottom of the frame then seems to grow with specks of black rising into the frame.

    The strange shape undulates - rather like wax rising in a lava lamp. "Exhibit 'A'" Another strange shape emerges. "Exhibit 'B'" This time the shape looks more like ink moving through water. It emerges in puffs. "Exhibit 'C'" More strange shapes appear.

    "The Secret - just chemical fun with dyes and water - " C/U of a jam jar full of clear liquid. Man's hand enters shot and drops some black powder into the jar. Film ends.
