cross walk button

Have you ever seen kids or dumb adults pushing the crosswalk buttons multiple times thinking that's going to change the traffic lights turn green faster?  Well, that's where I got this idea for my short film "ice cream bound".  It's about a girl and a creature trying to cross the street to get to an ice cream truck.  There's a Studio Ghibli Layout Exhibition in Tokyo right now and I got inspired to do a layout in Miyazaki style. Yeah, the light is supposed to be red, I know...

It's surprizing where you get the inspiration from.

no, I hate it when I push the button and then the person behind me does to, like they just told the light that now there is 2 of us waiting. The light isn't counting...."oh wow those people are in a hurry!"
