Rob and I made the short film First Night W/ Domino & Friends to celebrate the more than 150 Brentwood and Crestview neighbors who participated in the Procession of the Violet Crowns at First Night Austin, December 31, 2005.
The procession was led by Domino the Pig, created by artist Jean Graham, who received a commission to coordinate the community project for First Night. Neighbors recreated the procession at First Night four years later. First Night W/ Domino & Friends was first screened in the Community Tent at the Violet Crown Festival in May 2006, as part of a display featuring Domino and violet crowns.
