So, it looks like I missed posting anything in April. I guess I didn’t have a lot to say, what with things being shut down and all.
Not much happening in May, either. I continue to work on upcoming projects, and, predictably, start to find the work tedious and wonder what else I can do.
Oh, well. Here are some stills from an upcoming project.
It’s a fairly simple thing, no real story, just images, but of course it has to be stubborn and refuse any easy egress.
Anyway, thanks for visiting and we will see you in June!
The next chapter in the “Instruction” saga has now been published at YouTube. Here are some stills:
The whole thing can be found here: https://youtu.be/GSHl5p3GDQ4
And now, I guess, it’s off to start the next chapter…and I have no idea how to do that!
See you next month. Thanks for stopping by.
Yeah, not crazy about the title, but it seems to fit. Titles are, believe it or not, always the most difficult thing to come up with.
Anyway, the project is finally finished and posted, and here it is. Enjoy.
So, the animation thing I thought was never going to be finished is getting close. The second one needs sound, but is otherwise done.
Not a whole lot else going on. See you next month!
So, it’s the end of June. How are things progressing? Well, the script group is kind of in endless rehash mode, but I’ve got five scripts in various stages, so there’s that.
The editing thing has been abandoned. I’ve been working too much on my own stuff, which is the ambitious animation. I’ve got several sequences finished, and will probably be able to post a “part one” in July. Here’s a shot of an impact crater, cobbled together from a dozen or so different images.
Also, met an interesting person. Possibly more to say on that later.
As always, thank you for stopping by.
Well, I see it’s time for the monthly update. Well, I’ve got four projects in various stages of completion (none of them really close to that, though).
One is a script for a group, and I’ve kind of soured on it. Sometimes shorter is worse.
The second is a possible edit for a film for the same group. Barely started on this, already thinking it’s futile.
Third up is a new painting, which has already stalled.
Finally, we have a new animation that may be too ambitious for me. Haven’t done much lately on that, but it’s still in place.
So, that’s that. I hope to update this more regularly, but we’ll have to see. As always, thanks for stopping by.
Greetings, friends and neighbors. Speaking of the animation that I mentioned last time around, I neglected to provide a link. Here it is:
It’s about six and a half minutes, which is (for my own YouTube habits) on the edge of being too long. But there it is. The title, by the way, is almost a pun.
I’ve continued to paint, with varying results, and am actually making progress learning Maya.
In the interest of crass concerns, I’ve added a PayPal link at the top of the page. So, if you have a couple of bucks…
The universe contains many fine people; while in the past I had my doubts, those doubts are put to rest. Not many, and certainly not enough, but they are there. If you’re reading this, you’re one of them!
I hope to update this more often, but, as we all know, the best-laid plans….
Since the death of my friend, Bobette Nourse, I’ve not felt the need to do anything at all…not just creative things, but anything and everything.
I uploaded the final chapter of “Hence” a day before she died….normally, this would be a post topic, but obviously some things are far more important. I will miss her profoundly for the rest of my life.
Still, to step down to the trivial, here’s the link to the last chapter of “Hence.” Enjoy. It’s over six minutes long, so I understand if that’s too long (it would be for me, so no shame).
See you next month, and thank you for stopping by,
Well, June had some things going on, none of them really interesting, though I did get some decent CGI work done. And that was really it. Found out my rent is going to greatly increase; not to worry, as soon as I can figure out how to put a PayPal button on the page, my legions of fans will no doubt spring to my aid.
Ha ha, just kidding. Except not about the rent, damn it.
Anyway, here’s a still from my latest video. Enjoy, and see you next month!
Wow, we’re almost at the end of April. And what have I been up to?
Well, nothing much. Trying to survive.
Anyway, I completed a video project. Here’s the link:
Hope you enjoy that; sorry if the preview image is a spoiler, but I’m new to this YouTube stuff. Let me know if you don’t enjoy it and I’ll try harder.
And here’s something that might possible come to something, should fate be kind. It’s just a preliminary image at this point…I don’t even have any actors for this!
(The red box is my “bounding box”, where things enter and exit the stage. So I can herd my actors accordingly.)
So that’s the state of things. As always, thanks for visiting, have fun, tip your waitress and I’ll see you all shortly…ish.
