Country Life

From my YouTube blurb:

A few years ago I lived in a tiny town on the edge of nowhere. Men were at a premium there; that is, there weren't that many. The local saying was that you needed to import one to have one *wink*. I opted out of the need for a guy and enjoyed my time there immensely, but many women made the choice to support their guys who spent their time in "artistic" pursuits or simply with a Bud at hand. This film is partly for them and the life that continues there.

I was so impressed with these animations, I simply had to use them lickety-split.  And it was fun. The lazy guy is just me in male form so not really a story there :D.

A Rusted Development

A curated exhibit opened for the month of May over on LEA1. I spent a morning exploring and filming and the next day editing. This is the result. A great build and certainly plenty to think about. As always I went without a plan and let the exhibit tell its own story -- from my point of view of course.

Running with Scissors

I spent several weeks on Running with Scissors, building many of the sets, designing others and attempting to make each shot as elegant as possible. I was pretty successful in my estimation. I had some issues with trees that caused a tremendous amount of lag (who knew?). There was one shot I would have liked a do-over on, but sometimes that just doesn't work out.

It is a story of mothers and daughters and how wisdom can change over time.
