Here's a short video that I've been working on - inspired by Metaphorest's Ravens record. This was my first attempt at rotoscoping. I had to remake marcellepallais' hair, I hope I did her justice. I've been playing around a lot with the coloring, and I think I'll increase the contrast and bring out the blues a bit more.
I built and animated the the wings and birds from dgroeneman's "feather drawing" and sojushots' "winter tui". I've uploaded some pre-keyed high-res image sequences of the flying birds, and flapping wings as resources for remixability.
Ideally when I'm done, I'd like the video to span the entire song. I welcome feedback on where to go from here.
As requested, here is my interpretation of Gaby's Bad Advice Record: "When life gives you lemons, just wait for some oranges, apples and pineapples and make some delicious fruit juice." ....somehow this took a weird, dark turn when I went to illustrate it. Graphite and pencil crayons on paper.
Not letting her long legs and short wings deter her; Gertrude had finally figured out how to fly like the rest of the birds. She neglected; however, to devise a way back down.
You tell your son that he can fly.
Fasten on his bright red cape
and tell him he can defy

all the r...
"Hey Mom, look what I got!"

Sinnamin challenged me to illustrate her cute tiny story, "The Scared Cloud". Here is what I came up with! I hope you like it Sinnamin!
"You're delicious!" He said as he sunk in his teeth, "You're so tender, and sweet, and invitin'!".
"But I'm vicious as fuck, asshole, when I'm messed with", she responded, as she stu...
Each time I focused on someone's records I felt curious about who published them and I often found those "getting personnal with" texts that answered my questions. So I think this is a good way ...
So here is the idea, I want true interpretations of finding hope for the hopeless. BUT, I want to see peoples impulse on what that is. So the goal is to create art (inspired by but not limited t...
You heart is caged as it watches,
Waiting for bruises to surface your skin,
You use to have the loveliest face,
You use to, you were, you've been,
We're laying down on my bed, just the two of us.
The smell of your neck makes me dizzy, I drink you in even more.
You hold my chin, lift up my head and look into my eyes....
The judge looked at the Wolf, disgusted and fully aware he would condemn him to prison for life. But he still had to ask the question: "Do you have anything to say for yourself?"
How do you tell a live jellybaby in a bowl full of dead jellybabies? The toothpick wiggles!
What's red and white and spins around? A bunch of vanilla-stawberry jellybabies in a blend...
erm..wasn't sure whether to upload it or not...here it is anyway
The heart rate looks weird..Maybe a proper illustration? xxx
Took about an hour to mess with in Sony Acid Music Studio 8. This is also my very first RECord/Audio mix thing! :D
After the awesome feedback I got, here's another take at Wednesday's child. I dunno - I've gotta do something about the levels because when they're exported, they get all louder and softer than they'd been.
Just me and the viola this time, and I slowed it down a bit.
Any and all feedback is certainly helpful.
And I think it bears mentioning that I love this text by kouralilly, so thanks for letting me mess around with it :)

When I was a kid I used to think that little people controlled people's brains...I was slightly weird...I guess nothing has changed!
I wanna make a film based around the recently featured 'Honey'.
Something sweet, poetic, but not cheesy.
Something based on the props in the drawing.
I need a writer to write something equally beautiful as the original source. Using the lines already written as a structure.
"But somehow their scent remained,
like the honey in her
strong, dark tea."
Build characters or whatever. if it works out, maybe I can make something.
I don't imagine the film being too long, but, it could be very impactful.
i invited you over last night while we were sleeping.
you were the only one that stayed.
*inspired by wirrow's Hevn and Urth illustrations; i went to sleep listening to "the atom song" that night and i think he's starting to invade my brain :P*

So, I remixed all this collabs about doing an autopsy and I did a self portrait with my things, to illustrate who I am. It's a fun exercise, choose the objects that will represent you.
1) In the background, my nacionality, Brazil's flag.
2) At the left, my diploma of Publicity and Propaganda (the formal document and the symbolic one).
3) My sun glasses. I use a lot.
4) My pearl necklace it's because I love this vintage stuff, and also it's a gift from a special person.
5) The MP3 player I carry wherever I go. I almost never stop listening to music.
6) The CDs are actually DVDs. I love cinema and I buy every dvd of the films I love! I can't help it!
7) I wrote this little diary. It's not actually to write things I do every day, but everything that inspire me.
8) Pink lipstic, my favorite, and my make-up brush.
9) Two pictures, one of my best friends and another of my boyfriend.
been wanting to film myself shave with my straight razor for a while now as a response to jestferlaffs video
i kept this long so it could be used as RAW Footage for someone.. so sorry for the length
just wanted to share a bit of what i've been up to lately..
sewing embriodery versions of my drawings, here is a detail of the illustration - last night.
there's quite a bit of space for text or re-mixing if anyone wants to use it <3
Because I have two ridiculously hard tests to study for and a paper to write this weekend. I kid you not one test is so hard that last time the class received a ten point curve so most of us could pass! I'm skating by with a C but I havent given up hope on making an A or at the very least a B. The point scale is odd but with group project points hopefully I'll squeak by. Its been awhile since I did rerecs-since I was recovering from surgery- but there was a lot of awesome things to recommend! This might just be it from me this weekend-have to switch off creative mode for school mode-oh well it will be over soon!
P.S. Also I'm takin a cue from Marcelle who focuses mostly on video editors in her rerec videos so I tried to focus mostly on new writers-so disappointed that a lot of great text recorders I recommended last year have since abandoned the site-I think its important to try to retain the talent.
Creating cool characters is a great way to start developing stories that can evolve into short films, comic strips, or even songs.
ILLUSTRATORS: Make new characters, or remix characters that already exist on the site. Contribute these to chloe04's "Character Collab" so we can remix them even further.
WRITERS: Find characters in the "Character Collab" and write stories about them. You can put them together with other characters or find collaborations that you can integrate them into.
I really love "why so shy little knit boy?" by sojushots and "Cactus and Balloon" by LydiaSaskia. These are awesome examples of characters that have been contributed to chloe04's collaboration. Now we can begin remixing them into their own stories.
Can't wait to see more characters from all of you guys!
I think of her most in the springtime. The way she used to sit for hours on the screen-porch with the Times and a paperback, sipping her cup of tea. Sometimes when she found an artic...
"Are you certain it was him?"
"Well, next time, make certain that you're certain, yes?"
An idea I proudly have taken from jesterlady. The organization queen, and the one who leads me to amazing records I would have never seen! My worm is pulled out of my nose to you! ;D
A quick sketch I did today for Kouralilly's challenge. It's for her beautiful poem, "long distance relationship". I'm not a very good artist and I generally need an image in front of me to draw from so I drew the woman based off of an image of Angeline Jolie and the man from an image of Leonardo DiCaprio.
I have always wanted to remix a record of Mirtle's but didn't want to ruin the integrity of her original drawing.
She did this doodle this week and specified that it would be nice to see it colored-GREEN LIGHT!
So photoshop and I went to work-hope you (and she) enjoy it and much as I did making it!
A tiny fragment of Spring
I've realized that as individuals we are blessed in many ways throughout our lives.
We all have opportunities in our life to make a difference in one way or another.
You are my blood,
flowing, moving, pulsing through my veins,
You are my lifeline,
up then, down now, my life is in your reins,
You are my heartbea...
This suddenly popped up in my head when i thought about the creation myth... i usually draw for other people's stories/ideas but since i really had the urge to draw this, i am hoping someone else can come up with a story for this maybe? :D I was offline for some time now, i missed you all. <333
She found an old book in the attic, the pages had yellowed with time.
When she opened the book, dried rose petals fell to the floor. Smiling, she remembered when he gave her this ros...
just a little tweak at the end compared to version 1 :)
