with apologies to david o'reilly for the octocat look-a-like on the bottom right. 

pick up master

I have mentioned this before, but I really love pickup lines. I collect them.
I think they are like puns- only the person saying them thinks they're going to work, which makes them way funnier.
if you have any good ones send them my way

TRAIIIIIIIIIINNNNNNN - or when I made a music video.

Sometime around December, I decided that I would get off my butt and make a music video. I had intended to for quite some time- a year or so maybe? So since December, each day when I got home from working on my thesis film, I would putter away on this side project for a half hour or so. I finished it up this week. While the last week or so was rough, it was an absolute blast to work on, and I learned so much.

I’ll try to put up a bit of making-of post up in the next couple of weeks. More info at the youtube link!


Tech specs too boring for youtube:
I drew all the boards traditionally on rice paper (for some reason. I think it was cheap paper?), and scanned ‘em all in. I painted them in PS, comped them all in premiere, and then did a final effects pass in after effects.
Random note: I thumbed this out, and drew all the boards without timing it to the music. I had an idea of where I wanted things to go, but as I was comping it the first time around, I was praying so much that it would fit okay. Somehow, it did.

another lady

this girl at school has a fabulous sense of style, i totally dig it.

tumbleweed matryoshka and a quick note about films...

I've only ever seen real tumbleweek once or twice in my life, and always in very weird places, like downtown oakville on a tuesday night, with an old friend.
I'm almost finished with my latest film (no, not my thesis film. but my other other film), so hopefully that will be up soon.
