Quick Hits: Kids with Guns

Tim Hussin, who is interning at the Deseret Morning News, decided to fill in his time away from work with, what he describes as an opportunity: "I just wanted to go as overboard as I could with it. And I wanted to experiment with garageband."

And experiment he did with "Kids with Guns," a feature he found of a group of kids playing "war."

I shot (pardon the pun) some kids playing guns at what seemed to be an abandoned church the other day. These kids were serious. One of them actually knew a little history for some of the battles they were trying to act out. I realized that I don't need to go to Iraq to shoot war when it's right in our backyards...

The result is one of the most exciting and poetically crafted pieces I've seen in recent memory, plus the visual variety is impressive and keeps the vignette going.
