Color Script #1 for "En Passant"



So a filmmaker by the name of Chris Burton (http://www.iceboxstudios.co.uk/) approached me about doing a color script for his 3D musical short film called "En Passant" (currently in production). The music in the film is by Leeran Z. Raphaely (http://leeranz.com/). I've seen a rough cut of the film and it's amazing! The acting and the music are so awesome. I'm very excited to be a part of the team.

I'm going to be doing a series of paintings using light and color to represent the changes in the emotional tone of the film. This is the first one. I'll be posting more day by day.

Maybe you can help too! Chris is looking for people to help with the 3D side of things. You can read more about it here: http://blenderartists.org/forum/showthread.php?257943-En-Passant-a-Blender-musical-(-help-wanted!)

I'm Going to Storyboarding Workshop in Bay Area (near Pixar)

Hey guys,

A few weeks ago I learned about this organization called "Animation Collaborative" (http://www.animationcollaborative.com/). They offer classes in animation and all the teachers are big studio folks - Pixar, Disney, Dreamworks, Blue Sky etc. And it's located across the street from Pixar. The school is apparently one year old.

They have a workshop on storyboarding over the summer and I've decided that I want to take it. The course runs from August 18 - September 4. So that means I'm going to be temporarily moving from DC to San Francisco. I haven't found housing yet. That's the next step.

It'll be hard to be away from Ilya (partner), but I'm looking forward to the course. It'll start right after Comic-Con, so I'm thinking I'm going to go straight there from San Diego.

One concern: How the heck do I transport my 21" Cintiq tablet monitor (aka my precious baby)? I have to find out if the original packaging would fit in the overhead ... I guess I could check it as luggage, but ... if anything happened to it I would be SO SAD. >_<

New Myst Comic Page Monday!


I know it's practically Monday anyway ... but I just wanted to say that I'm going to start posting new Myst comic pages tomorrow. I'm pretty excited. 

It took about 22 days, but I finally finished writing and thumbnailing Chapter 4. Chapter 4 is a big one: 38 pages! That's a little more than 7 weeks worth of new pages. I've completed two pages so far, which I think is enough to get the ball rolling. 

It's been a lot of fun to work on so far. I hope you enjoy it! :D

I'm going to San-Diego! I got a deviantART scholarship to go to Comic-Con!
 
Ahhhh!!!! DeviantART.com is sponsoring me to have my own space at Artist's Alley at Comic-Con, one day within July 12-15. I only have like five weeks to prepare. What am I going to sell/give away? eeeep. What day should I go? Anyone going? Please come say hi! I'm so excited!

In case anyone's interested, here's the portfolio I submitted to the DeviantArt for the scholarship. I was pretty proud of my (very short) bio saying why I they should pick me.
