Well, here it is again, the end of the month. This month has been a pretty productive one, as the animation project is finished (aside from a couple of sound bits and some timing fixing.) So there’s that.
On the bad side, my struggle with the bottle is in full flower. That’s not good, but I’m unsure how to fight it. I know I can, and I have, but it keeps coming back.
Anyway, it’s now officially the Christmas season, which typically depresses me. But I’ll try to be of good cheer.
Whoops. Looks like I didn’t do an entry for July before the month ran out on me. Oh well, at least there was a good reason, as I’ve been going full ahead on the latest animation. Maybe some stills forthcoming.
In the meantime, thanks for stopping by, and we’ll see you next–uh, later this–month.
Well, I posted the 4th and final chapter of “Instruction” on Saturday, and I forgot to mention it here!
I think it’s because, overall, the story doesn’t really add up to anything. There are parts I like, scenes that I think really work, and some good designs. But taken as a whole, it doesn’t seem to be a single thing. It’s just a collection of parts that remain parts.
It’s also just over seven minutes long, so there’s that. That means that the whole story is almost 25 minutes long, which is too long for something that (to my mind) isn’t more than what it is. I know that last bit doesn’t make sense, but there it is.
Below is the link for the curious, and as always thanks for visiting.
These are all photos, made with my trusty Nikon D70. None of them have been altered in any way, other than reducing their size (they were all 3000 x 2000, I’ve made them 750 x 500).
As you’ve probably guessed, these were made by using long exposures at night, while a friend and I were driving around (don’t worry, I wasn’t the driver). (The very first one was not made at the same time, and no driving was involved, but the method was the same.)
I just found it interesting that you can get some really spectacular imagery by using random methods.
