Better News

In a break from the recent updates, I have some rather good, or at the very least decent news.

I don't think I mentioned it here, but I will now since in a couple weeks I'll either be raving about it or complaining. With all the photos taken over the course of the shoot, I wanted to do something more then just make the movie and have pile of pictures taking up harddrive space to show for it otherwise. So I made a book.

Go check out www.blurb.com. I used about 200 photos, 90 pages and assembled a rather nice 8x10 book. It features a lot of behind the scenes shots from a few of the more interesting scenes. A lot of makeup shots, several pages on the CG characters and 4 pages of stills from the movie. It may not be the most awesome thing in the world, but it's pretty damned cool.

It should be here in a couple weeks. I should point out the link is to the site that makes these books, not to the actual book itself. For now it remains private, but I might open it up for public sale once those involved in the project have decided they would like one or not.

Also, I should be getting new equipment soon, like today or tomorrow. Either a new still or video camera, depends on my mood.

And finally, I haven't been having much luck getting motivated to do the prosthetic thing, but I came upon an extremely cheap and easily made substitute for foam latex. I just found it a few hours ago and have yet to test it, that will be later today. So we'll see what happens there I guess.

I've been slowly recovering from the loss of Scully, not to bring it up again. I had that last week to get used to the idea and I'm glad I was able to spend her last hours with her.

  1. Losing any of my cats over the years was harder in many ways than losing friends etc.

    Scully was unique and beautiful. You know I thought so.

    She was lucky to find you.
