November 2020

Well, there’s November. A great deal of work has been done on the new project, with which I hope to conclude “Instruction.”

At least the visual part; I haven’t done anything with the sound.

Will it be presentable before the end of the year? I kind of doubt that, but occasionally I am surprised.

See you next month, and thanks for stopping by.

Well, part three of “Instruction” continues to move along, though without a real strong framework…I’ve got scenes that could literally be placed anywhere. That’s not good, as far as I’m concerned–story points should be embedded in every scene so that they eventually add up.

But since this story is so nebulous, I guess I’m not surprised the story points are not evident. Oh well.

See you next month.

Finally…animation

So, the final sound mix was completed and the project uploaded to YouTube.  I can’t believe it took over six months to do, but sometimes things…just run away, and you have to catch them and bring them back.

Here is the link.  Four minutes and change.  Thank you for watching (if you watch), and see you again soon.

May (and April)

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!

June 2019

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.

May 2019

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.
