Getting Ready

The hardest part of any journey is getting out the door. This video is a title sequence without a movie: two separate women attempt to get their 'look' together (by choosing shoes and brushing teeth). As the sequence cuts back and forth between them the same piece of music starts again and again, one a professional recording, the other the same piece being "practiced" on a piano.
