Shortly after joining HR in September 2012, one of my photos was used in a stop motion by the lovely IrmaVep. This was eventually used in the Good Nights music video, and I had an opportunity to see it at the Duke Show during the On the Road tour. 2013 has been a wild ride, and I've had the opportunity to do so much with this amazing community and meet some wonderful people.
I love making art with all of you wonderful people. My experiences with all of you are priceless, but hey, I'll take the cash too ;)
Please download for better view. The final rough before finishing. Again, left the "edge galaxy" mostly bare for render-time sake, but demonstrates the animated nebulas and outlaying gasses - A few things to change/fix/add - The next step is letting it render everything at full quality - Takes a whole day, so catching the small things to nit-pick in lower quality renders like this is essential!
My interpretation of transportation via information through space; Light. If you can convert a person's energy into data, the most reasonable method, in my mind, is to send that data through light.
Hope you guys enjoy it, not so sure of the sound design, would definitely like to see another idea for the sound. Was really inspired by Steve Rolston's "Herringbone Pattern", thought it would be a nice replacement for TV static, in a way :)
FREAKY!!! Here's a Rough Cut of the "Front Lawn Freak" Music Video, performed live at our Venue Shoot at The Troubadour in LA.
FREAKS: Film yourself freakin' on a front lawn. Be as creative as you'd like - but make sure you film on your own property or have permission to film at that location.
VISUAL ARTISTS: Here's a Reference Cut of "The Mushroom, Of Course" written by Michael Bacall and featuring performances by Melonie Diaz, Brie Larson, Michael Bacall, and RegularJOE. Illustrate THESE VISUALS for the Short Film. Please refer to this picture when contributing your visuals to the collaboration. CONTRIBUTE HERE
Shot for "Still Here"
Shoe in the rain, slow motion (96 frames per second). Shot 21.
remember when I gave you back that shirt i dont like?
cause I said that it reminded me of all of those times
and you'd tell me be quiet, that its all in my mind
well im takin it back, im puttin it on, im wearin it tonight
cause I miss you, yeah
and I think I missed it
when you said yeah
but I heard you say no
and remember when I said I didnt think we're alike
a-cause-a I was always caught up on the fact that we die
and you said it didnt matter, just go and live your life
well baby now Im thinking that maybe you were right
cause I miss you so often
and we do have things in common
and I never layed a finger on you
unless it was wanted
do you remember when you said do it again?
im takin it back,
and im keeping it
and you can never have it
it's become a habit
i only wear it when i am blue
it reminds me of the truth
that I never really knew you
Inspired by nickmastrini to make something for the Still Here short film. This is it.
And now that you've tossed me out
for you I no longer exist.
But I'm still here.
