1 foreground / background

In this assignment, I was interested in the "extras" you see in those busy urban scenes in films -- those nameless faces, who get a split second on the screen as they pass by. I was thinking about how the "extras" are always the background, whether they're in the foreground or in the background of the image, i guess because they just set the scene for the narrative. I thought it would be neat to give these people a chance to shine, or at least tell their story.

I still like this idea, but I don't think I really accomplished it here. Take a look. I think the image quality (too dark) hurts it. I also wanted to incorporate sound, but didn't get around to it.
