Back at Calarts

I drove home for thanksgiving! A 13 hour drive! I only had to drive for seven of those hours, but still a cussing long ass drive. I picked up Ashlee in flagstaff and she finished the driving. I'm glad i did it this time but i don't know if i ever want to make that drive again!! it is a LONG DRIVE. Ashlee was cool though. I got to catch up on her year and I also found out about what the college mission trip is going to be this year.

I got home and didn't get to do much film work. I was setting up the Christmas decorations, and stuff. But i did get to do some sketching at Flying star.

Oh yeah go see, Fantastic Mr. Fox, it is fantastic

48 hour film

This was the film i did for the 2009 48 hour film Festival at Calarts. The Song is Talkin' Sasquatch Blues by Ten Mile Tide and can be purchased here
The Band's Website:
The Designs are inspired by

It was a great experience, not sure if I'll do it next year though.

New Film Direction

So i was talking to Steve Brown today about my film, and at some point during the conversation he mentioned shadows and all of the sudden it hit me like a train. The story i'm thinking should be shadows on the wall of a cave. The story will be told exclusively with the shadows but i was thinking of either starting or ending with the storyteller.
Here is a vignette i did to illustrate the idea

Layouts for film

These are concepts on possible looks for my film.

I decided to try something different with life drawing today and desided to do digital life drawing. Since i did not have my tablet i approached the drawings like i would cutouts and used the track pad and my finger to draw the shapes out. Here is what i got!

New Character Designs For my film

I worked on these yeti designs today! Tell me what you think. I was thinking of these as more shape studies rather than the designs i will actually use but if some one can tell me how i would animate these i might use these.

What I wish someone had told me before I came to Calarts

  • Get a coffee maker of some kind
  • For your first year don't worry about making a GREAT film. Just make a film.
  • Sketch
  • Make a portfolio, portfolio
  • Don't pull the "all-nighter" just to pull the "all-nighter"
  • Schedule in Breaks
  • Take an english 101 class
  • To get anything done with administration you need to ask more than three times.
