Roughing It

Hah, only been two weeks since my last post :D

I've been doing a lot of sketching in the evening lately, just random stuff, and decided to color some of them yesterday.

These were done in a something called MyPaint. Compared to the likes of Photoshop, it is somewhat limited in way of features, but that makes you work smarter, I think.

That's it for now, I guess. Have a wonderful day :D

Rain Dance

Been too long. But I think I'm back :D

Here's a painting for the good old taw-monkey site. Theme was 'rain dance', not that we need it where I am.

That's it for now. Hopefully it won't be another six months before my next post :D

Final Pitch

So time for the the final pitches came this week. I had prepared two pitches - none of them were chosen but I'm quite happy with the selection we got and I can can always keep working on my stories on my own and I intend to do so.

Anyway, here are my title images for the projects:

I pitched Bunto once again, though I changed the story quite a bit. In the new version, he falls in love with a regular young woman and does a lot to impress her.

This story, Midnight Motel, replaced The Dumpling from last time, which wasn't really that strong anyway. Midnight Motel is the story of childhood sweethearts Fred and Barbara who come to a rundown roadside motel. Here, they have their already strained realtionship put to the test as they soon find themselves on the frontlines of an ongoing war between the creepy old motel owner and the resident forces of evil. It would be a comedy.

In other news, I was art director on a project here at school. You can watch it here.

Looking forward to the summer.

Last Friday we had what is called a pre-pitch here at the school. We had a chance to pitch ideas for our bachelor films and try out pitching before the actual pitch which is sometime in June. My pitches could have gone better, there's no denying that, but it was great fun and I'm glad I went and did it.

I now have the opportunity to work on my ideas, based on the feedback I received at the pre-pitch or ditch the ideas and come up with brand new ones. Still mulling it over.

Anyway, thought I'd show some pitch material here. The first pitch was Bunto, a story I've had in the back of my head since the first year. It stars a giant childlike forest spirit and a girl made of mist. The major problem I have with this one is that the relationship between the two needs work for the climax to grab the audience. Anyway, art:

My second pitch was basically a kung fu western. It was called 'The Dumpling'. A lone warrior (kind of a samurai) with a delicious dumpling head finds himself surrounded in a starving backwater town. There would be plenty of action and cool shots. This idea seemed to engage my classmates more than the first, sparking their imaginations. The problem with it is that it could easily just be a halfminute joke which isn't really bachelor film material. So unless I find some way to give it a deeper meaning and story, this could get ditched (for the bachelor pitch, anyway).
