In a follow up video I used the dots that were punched out the pastel colored sheets of paper. I sprinkled the dots into a large goldfish bowl filled with water. To add more light, I placed flash lights aimed at the bowl from the side. Then I shot video using my flipcam.
To make sure more dots appeared in the frame, I added more water to the bowl and stirred the water with my fingers. Eventually a large number of the dots circled the bowl. After editing the video in iMovie, I uploaded the footage to YouTube. Finally in Audio Swap, I searched for mellow music to reinforce the idea of the dots swimming.
