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.

February Notes

Greetings, friends and neighbors.  Speaking of the animation that I mentioned last time around, I neglected to provide a link.  Here it is:

Recollection.

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….

And thus there is no “There” there

Hello.

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,
