Busy as a Bee That Is Very, Very Busy

| 4 Comments | No TrackBacks

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.

To whom it may concern:

You have a vob file(VTS_01_1.VOB) on your web site( http://www.edgore.com ). You must have obtained this vob by copying content from a motion picture digital video disk(DVD) in violation of the Digital Millenium Copyright Act(DCMA). \

As the original authors of the DCMA we are empowered to protect the rights of the author of the work(EDWIN GORE) and copyright holder(EDWIN GORE) as well as collect damages.

Until and unless you remove this film from your web site, our team of lawyers will be sharpening their claws and salivating at the thought of submitting and endless array of motions which drive you into ruin. I myself have the electronic equivalent of "Wood" just thinking about it.

If I were you I would seriously consider obtaining a legitimate copy of VTS_01_1.VOB from EDWIN GORE and removing file from your web site.

You have been warned.

All your bases are belong to us.

Hey Ed,

I tried to download a copy of your film, but I got a picture of GIR flipping me the 404.

Cool! What's it called? Might I suggest "Drink...Drive...Repeat?"

Just to be very clear - all driving scenes were shot *before* shooting the shotglass scene. Also, since I hate whiskey the shotglass was actually emptied into another, off camera shotglass. I did have a vodka tonic afterwards though.

It's hard to name anything that is only 30 seconds long (sort of like considering a tiny clump of cells to be a person). If I call it anything I've just been calling it "Invitation", from the song name.
