I was out of town last week in Memphis, so obviously there was nothing to post while there. Work, hot, humid. Bad, bad, bad. 'nuff said.
Since returning I have been preparing my short (<30 seconds that's the rules) film for Lorelei's Blipverts mini-filmfest in San Francisco, on the announced theme of "Blue". You can see a rough cut here - be warned it's 20 megs, and you need something that can read .vob files (PowerDVD on WIndows will, for example).
After seeing the Dresden Dolls filmfest on Saturday Mellani is now all excited about doing stop motion animation, and asked "How do they do that". This is my 4 minutes of screwing around to explain how it works - highlighting the importance of careful control of the lights (a negative example). I think that is our next project - stop motion animating a feature film using stuff we find lying around (We could actually make a GOOD version of the Brave Little Toaster - with a real, fire breathing toaster!).
So, anyway, that's what I have been up to. Sorry for not posting for over a week. I am a bad, bad person.
