For those not in The Know, this is a board of sequential story panels (my film in its entirety at one point) that helped me organize the story into a format that gave a sense of visual flow, structure, and continuity. Before this stage they were a number of panels crambed onto 8x11 pages, and before that, scribbles in my sketchbook. Now they've moved on to leica format: timed out to serve as a base for the final product, where I've continued to analyze the story from a new angle again.

when you get older...

.. you do strange things.

I'll probably post a bit more film-progress-related stuff soon. This upcoming week is break week; I'm hoping to a) finish final tweaks on my leica reel and b) take a bite into the puppet-making aspects and set-planning of my film. Oh, and c) write an essay.

Ode to Mel

...who was wonderfully wed on Saturday and is (I suspect) contentedly reclining on a beach somewhere. We are two very different individuals - and we've had our share of comraderie and squabbles - but in the last couple of years I've come to appreciate those dissimilarities and the ways in which God has blessed her as an individual; particularly her warmth, empathy, and fun spirit.

On other notes, I was part of a tour of Sheridan's new Advanced Special Effects Makeup, Prosthetics & Props program this morning, and it was wicked awesome.

Thursday, October 8, 2009 can probably smell me comin'.
