city shot rough

This is a super rough scene-in-progress. It's how I work--one bit at a time.

Anyways, my junior film is taking off and making progress. I'm already coloring frames! It's good news.

So far, I've got my backgrounds roughed, colors working, maya elements modeled, animated, and rendered, and now I'm piecing together my big AE scenes. No worries, it's looking good.

library class update

My boys, Jamon and Jamil working on some paper puppets.

Me lecturing. I think I was talking about Kid Koala's Basin Street Blues and digital puppets.

Working at the other library. Quay, in the grey sweater, does great work. It's pretty inspiring to see.

confident ladies

I'm liking this blue. And in general, these colors.

I've always been bad at painting in photoshop, so I like to make sure things look digital. Super artifice. And shiny!

experimental projection

An assignment to experiment with projection techniques.

Three projectors are each projecting a channel of red, green, and blue. As they intersect, the colors of light create cyan, magenta, and yellow. As people interact with the piece, they stop the colors intersecting, leaving silhouettes of one color projection.

So I cut the pieces to 4/4 time so that they'd match up to the majority of dance songs, other such things. And thus, the perfect installation for a dance party is had.
