My personal story / future short film / visdev portfolio project is coming along quite nicely, if I do say so myself. It's not where I wish it to be and I have SO much left to do, learn, and improve on, but it's proving to be the perfect self-assignment to rev up the intensity on my training.
Here are some recent things from my exploration on the look of this film.
And a random practice painting. I saw the light hit the tree outside my window in an interesting way and I couldn't look at it without painting it. Haha.
Recently I caught a glimpse of a river as I was driving past it. When I saw the way that the sunset was reflecting off of the water, I audibly gasped. It was beautiful! Hopefully I've captured the essence of that here in this warm up sketch.
I'm writing, illustrating, and designing a children's book of my own. I'm going to send postcards to publishers, but I will print and sell the book through Blurb if nothing happens. My goal is to have it finished in a year.
And I think I'm going to make a 30 second short film to learn Flash and After Affects. Thanks to classes on Skillshare and various online tutorials, I think I can learn it! Yay.
