IlluXCon, Autumn Leaves, and Other Stuff

Ok, I don't have much time, just really quick in and back out, so...
First, we're back from IlluXCon 4 and we had a great time!
I was given the privilege to set up a computer showing my short films. Thanks to the masterminds behind IlluXCon, Pat and Jeannie Wilshire.

This picture is actually from last year, but Ian Miller (left) was unable to attend this year. He was there in spirit.

Me (right of course) and Britt Tolemeo

One of my favorite Thomas Kuebler sculpts, the Geinball Machine (it really works)

I even got to play in the IlluXCon Jam headed up by the great artist/guitarist, Mark Zug!

So, other than IlluXCon news, I'm pleased to inform you that I've completed Autumn Leaves! Actually, everything in this post is old news, I must confess. IlluXCon was back at the beginning of the month and Autumn Leaves was finished the third week of October. I've just been so busy that I haven't really had time to update the blog (plus, I kept forgetting about it too). Either way, that's all the news for now. Except, Autumn Leaves will not be available for viewing for another week or so. It's a really huge file and would probably take 12 or more hours to upload. Until then, I'll try to be more immediate with my posts.

New Show Reel Up

Just here to say that I've updated the "Show Reel Button" on the side of the screen. The latest reel showcases my more recent stuff and a few finished clips of Autumn Leaves! So, feel free to check it out.

Autumn Leaves Now in Full Production

For the past week I've been animating like crazy for the new Autumn Leaves short and things are going amazingly well. I'm already about a quarter (or possibly a third) of the way through the animation and have completed four whole shots!

I don't have any of said animation available for viewing yet, so in the meantime, I decided to post a few pics of the sets and whatnot.

Some ruins in the background - made of green florist's foam.

In this shot the pink screen was still up. I was going to use it instead of a green screen but the color bled into the shot too much and made everything very pink, and generally hard to key out. So I put up a white screen instead and it works quite well.

Behind the Scenes Pics

Just a peak behind the scenes at the last short I did.
It's just a 16 second spot for

I'm Still Here

As usual, I've not posted for some time but that's mostly because I had little to say.... until now that is. I've just recently finished a promotional spot for the IlluXCon 4 art show (which takes place every November in Altoona, Pennsylvania). You can see the spot on the site or here on YouTube.

Also, I'm finally getting around to some of the other shorts that I've been planning: like Autumn Leaves and a 10 second promo for
