Hello, folks of NG!
My my my it's been a while. Won't you take a seat and stay a littl bit?
These past few months I've been hard at work at FILM SCHOOL. (*lighting crashes and thunder crackles as a distant scream is heard*)
Nearly all of my time was spent working on producing a short film to meet our curriculum. It was extremely educational - I learned a lot on the fly about organizing and collaborating, and was lucky enough to work with some very talented and skilled people.
That being said, I'm not very proud of my work on it, nor the final product itself, so I won't be sharing it here. If you really wanna see it, just keep googling me, you stalker; you'll find it around.
It was extremely difficult work that put me in a new and challenging situation, so it wore me OUT. I spent several days after that doing as little as I possibly could to compensate.
So, to get back in the groove and remind myself why I enjoyed filmmaking in the first place, I quickly wrote a dumb little script and shot it one weekend by myself in my apartment. I then was able to get some excellent animations from @bitbeak, an excellent earrape score by @GoodL, and a last-minute permission to use an old video game animation by FDS old-timer @Kolumbo, and voila! Art.
Now that this project is done, I'm going straight into another big project: my Logan Whitehurst documentary. We're two months out from shooting now, and there's quite a bit of prep that still needs to be done. And once that's done shooting, right back into film school I go.
So, needless to say, NG is not going to be my main priority for a while. I'll probably be on-and-off active on the site for the next two years. After that, who knows?
Thank you everyone who's been watching my stuff and following so far. It really means a lot that people continue to find my work on here.
I also hope that people continue to try and make new, weird, strange, and entertaining stuff on here. It's important to find your voice, and this platform can be a great tool to do so.
Also, thank you to the 100+ people who saw Luckyboy and decided to follow every single person that worked on it. I'm at 600 followers wooooooooooo!
