Ext House Texturing

Monday, November 17, 2008


Been spending most of my time lately finishing up the script. I really do enjoy the writing process. Just wish I had more of a talent for it. Its like singing. Everyone loves singing, but very few have the talent to really do it. Anyway, Im studying and studying, hopefully some day I'll be able to call myself a writer. Or, at least a written. Huh? =)

The project is still on track. The characters are all modeled and textured. And im in the process of rigging them all. Then I'll go back and finish up the environments and move on to animation!
I'll get some new pics up asap.

Ms Scrim

work in progress shot

Monday, November 10, 2008


I got some great advise from a buddy of mine (I believe it was Andrew), who, after checking out my first film, recommend I check out some books on shot setup/cinematography. The book I went with is "Cinematic Storytelling: The 100 Most Powerful Film Conventions Every Filmmaker Must Know". The title may sound a little hacky, but my god what an amazing book. Basically is gives all kinds of techniques and then shows how they are used in some of the greatest films of all time.
Anyway, hopefully my study of cinematography shows in my next film =)

Been working on Mr. Scrims wife a lot lately. I'll have some pics up soon.

Slow down and speed up

Ahh, yes, happy halloween everyone! For someone who enjoys creepy things as much as myself, Im really not a halloween person. Actually, to be fair, Ide say Im a halloween person (the atmosphere, the candy, the people watching) but im not a dressing up person. I dont know what it is, I just dont like putting on a goofy costume.
Anyway, to the film =) So far, things have gone very smooth. Ive tackled a couple things that had me worried from the start. Grass being one. Which is looking great! Most of the modeling is done. A lot of the texturing is under way.
I've decided to take things much slower than my last film. This film is a lot more personal for me. I feel like all the practice, all the studying, all the dreaming should go into this film, as the story and subject really has become dear to my heart.
With this said, I have bumped the projected finish date to February 09. Just one month. But im not going to kill myself getting it down before then.
I'll have some pictures up soon.
