Film, Indiscriminate thoughts on May 22nd, 2011 by escargot

Video-haikus might be the most pretentious and artsy attempt of communication. But hell, I get the chance of getting a plus account on Vimeo.

I finished the adaptation of a Hemingway story last week, it ended up very well, I feel I did something good that in some way or another respects Hemingway’s work. The teachers are supposedly reading through all the submitted scripts and will be choosing two to be filmed, I’m starting to doubt that they’ll pick mine, and not because it’s not good enough. I suppose my proposal of a short film doesn’t really fit with what the school is aiming for. I don’t know, but I’m really looking forward to making it. Maybe I can gather a team and make it anyways. We’ll see.

“De Golpe” is almost finished, I’m waiting on the original music to be finished and wrap the title and credits animation, but so far I’m happy with the film and what it has become. As soon as it’s finished we’ll try to promote it and get it into some festivals or whatever we can find. We think it has the potential to make something out of it.

Remember that post where I mentioned the adaptation?
Here it goes.

A shortfilm I worked on last semester for film school.

For all of you who don’t know spanish, I recommend you to just watch it and afterwards look this site for a translation of the only word spoken.

Another test. I’m starting to hate post-production with pictures.
By the way, for all of you who don’t know where I live, that’s the view out my kitchen’s window.

Drawing, Film thoughts on October 14th, 2005 by escargot

This evening passed by weirdly. In part flooded in tea, which softly calmed my throat, throat that hurts lately (I’m riding my bike every morning through clouds of ice-like air) , and the light of a candle, a candle who was meant to burn under the sight of the pope in the Weltjugendtag in Cologne. I hoped it had some essence or raffinade flower smell; it hadn’t.

Today I wanted to draw the sketches in my note-bloc, more comics that is. But I made two and the third one disappeared with a crash of the GIMP, being it the hardest one. I just wanted to merge the text layer and draw the speech-line. Without that crash this would have been an only-comic post.
Instead I played Quake and thought in some ideas to my new clip*. I think I could be able to train a lot cutting stuff from the game. Free AVI’s and easy to make. My very own clay pit.

Tomorrow is friday, this week was very nice and I hope I get me on the creation train for the weekend. Even if I don’t create anything, jumping on someone else’s train is quite amusing. Maybe keeping these creative stances as something external, something foreign, exotic, maybe even forbidden, will keep me on the road.

I wish you dreams,

* Some days ago I made a clip you can get here, right behind the red box… yeh, right there.

The title comes from the last album of Bright Eyes… was quite nice the time I listened to it.
