As I work on stuff, I every time I have something that I like, I screen capture it. Just a single image, then most of the time I let myself forget the context and continue working at a fervent pace. Here’s some of those recent captures with maybe a little bit about them. If I remember.Starting easy, this is from tonight. I’m a little nervous about tomorrow’s 3d work since it’s been a month or so since I’ve really used more than 2.5 dees. So my solution is to do style renders tonight so I can go in tomorrow and look like I know what I’m doing on the fly.
Pokemon fusion understands me like nothing else. I’ve been adding backgrounds to these sprites in my fleeting spare moments. I’ll make a dump of just these soon as I have enough.
Tune in next time for rotoscoped graphics without the video layer!
This past year in a nut shell.
I’ve been extremely fortunate this past year to work on a ton of awesome projects. I was able to wake up excited for what I was doing more often than ever before, which honestly just makes me more excited for what the future holds. I was able to make new friends, work in some very cool offices, learned a couple good lessons on how to avoid all nighters, pulled at least a dozen all nighters, I got to see my graphics across screens the size of a football field, watched a least 100 hours of tutorials, had several things on the telly, and still had time for biking, hiking, reading, and video games.
Now I pour one out for the past year and raise a glass to the next!
…shit… don’t pour glasses out at your computer desk
I shot this on my old 30d the night before the 4th of July.
Here’s a short film some friends and I did back at the start of august for the Seattle 48 hour film festival.
Our requirements were as follows:
Genre: Creature Feature
Character: Darin/Dana Stumme, Massage Therapist
Dialogue: “No way, Never again.”
All in all this was one of the craziest shoots I’ve ever worked on. In a nutshell, we thought we had a great location, after shooting most of the day there, it became very clear that that was not the case. It turned out that the “unlisted bed and breakfast” was actually one of the compounds for Ramtha’s School of Enlightenment. We ended up scraping the vast majority of the day to just get away from the drunk and very aggressive folk who lived there. That cost us one of the two days we had. All of the interior day scenes were shot between 11pm and 4am. All in all, it was definitely a bonding experience.
