Soooooo, what's been going on?
I don't draw much these days--I still have couple comic projects sitting on the backburner, but I don't know when I'll get to them.
Whenever that happens, you'll all know. They're two collaborations with my brother, Joe--some of you may remember him as JNels and/or Steely Gaze.
I'll have more details to release on the subject when I get my lazy rear in gear.
One of my main focuses these days has been learning to be a director of photography.
Joe bought a camera last year so we can make movies--I've spent the last year, and now this one as well, fooling around with it and reading up on everything I can about shooting video. For anyone interested, these sites are pretty cool:
I've still got quite a ways to go, but mainly it's all practical practice right now.
I've learned a LOT about photography in general. I don't think I'll ever look at taking pictures the same way.
Hells bells, the stuff I'm learning can apply to drawing comics as well--it is damn COOL.
Gotta say: I'm hugely interested in this.
Right now I'm looking into making a DIY boom pole on the cheap for our shotgun mic, and cheap DIY lightning options.
I'm also trying to learn to be more comfortable in front of the camera--maybe make some vids myself.
Anyone got any suggestions for topics I should talk about? Questions I could answer?
I suppose I could just turn on the camera and ramble, some interesting topic might pop up eventually...
But I'm looking into practicing some editing as well and I just need stuff to practice ON.
So...suggestions? They'd be super welcome, if you got 'em.
