i'm on the road soon. or in the air. boys in rochester, a wedding in seattle, Walden production in Houston, semester in Dublin. i should buy some plane tickets.
check out my friend steven smith
. he has some illustrations, paintings, sketches that blow me away. seriously excellent stuff. he will be rocking SVA next semester, manhattan should prepare itself.
i return to the island today, which makes me sad, because manhattan is pretty right now. 'spermy' is in edit phase one: organizing thousands of cineon files into a coherent order. the animation looks awesome so far, which is good, because pickups at this point would be near impossible.
and i are starting rotoscoping and animation for a commercial, which may or may not involve mickey mouse in a car chase. we should open up a studio, call it hipkell or kellochop or hippotron films.
of kellotron.com! (use hearts above to navigate)
to any independent
filmmakers, artists, musicians, etc: contact me
to exchange links.
production on Spermy (see stills on right); Cineon scanning starts tomorrow! thanks to Nora Brisotti and Tim Wu for helping Mike and I through the most intense 80 hours of our lives. now begins the background painting and after effects intensive.
