Four more...I think I'm leaning towards the aesthetic of the last one...

It's not *quite* there!


With a little encouragement, I've gone back to approach this project a bit more artistically, and really worked to make the frames unique, rather than time-friendly. Here's what I've got so far...

A quick update


Today, I have:

1. Created a title page on imdb for 'Jas Duke On Democracy'
2. Created a title page on imdb for 'Ice' (which was shown at the SoCal Independent Film Festival, and is being entered into the Boston Independent Film Festival soon!)
3. Burned 'Ice' DVD for said BIFF entry
4. Paid BIFF fees
5. Created a withoutabox entry for 'Running Time'
6. Burned a 'Jas Duke On Democracy' DVD for the MassArt Type Show
7. Will now submit 'Running Time' to the BIFF?
8. Going to go type up a film festival resume later, and a DP production schedule
9. Seriously, will do more animating. I bought walnut ink for my DP, wish me luck!

Yay for organization!

Better yet...


Third try!

Side Project


A commissioned collage of a map. Soon there will be two small hanging tags attached to the map with silver pins: one in Portland, OR and one in Boston, MA. They'll be connected with a silver chain. It's a gift commissioned by a woman in a long distance relationship. D'awwww.

Second Pass DP Test


This is the same test animation, gone back in with pencil to rework the cloud outlines. I'm not 100% on how it looks, but it's getting there. Perhaps a third pass with black ink?

First DP Test!


Here it is! Watercolor storm clouds on tea stained paper. Only about 30 frames, but I wanted to see if the movement was reading at all. I'm excited! Now to go back into these same frames and bring things into focus with rough pencil outlines. Whoo! Meh, the speed is a little funny on photobucket, ah well.
