Whenever I've done something right, made changes to a photo. If I've done a good job. You won't notice it.
Still alive and kicking...or rather dancing.
I'm getting faster. Much faster. I know understand part of adding texture and punctuating rhythm to my movies also means adding more variety to my life. Years ago when I was in better shape I made Haloid in just over 2 months. Dead Fantasy 2 was made in about 4 months. These days as I get older and gain more skill. Somehow I seem to be getting slower. And part of it is re igniting my passion for things.
My movies have always been very rhythmic. And exercising rhythm in my life adds haste to my process. In an odd way, much like dancing adding texture and beats to my work means being ok with going slower. By lea
The Other SideSo what the one other thing I do beside work?
Man I've been a dance gamer for over 10 years now. I try to play for style more than anything. I like finding songs that are hard enough to keep you moving, but easy enough that you can still look cool doing it.
This is the one other thing I do besides work work work. Really it's the only exercise I get maybe once a week. But lately with changes in my diet I've been able to get in really good shape. I happened to be there one night and a passerby decided to start recording. This was linked to me by my buddy Archie.
Funny tidbit, before I was ever known for making movies. I was "famous" in my hometown for dancing at arcades. My friends would even joke about the group of kids who liked to watch me back then as "monty's fanclub."
iawtv awards showYo folks. Here i am in las vegas getting ready for tonight. Red vs blue has been nominated for best animarion at the international acadamy of web television for best animation. And tonightthere will be a livestream & red carpet for the ceremonies. You can watch the live stream at 9pm eastern time here: http://www.youtube.com/iawtvorg
See you then!
OnwardSo we managed to crawl to the finish of Red Vs Blue Season 9. If you've got a few bucks to spare, it's not a bad buy. You may be able to use it to clone me someday considering how much blood and sweat I poured into it.
But in all seriousness though it is a true product of love. I don't think anyone loves working on this more than I do.
That being well and behind me I'm already getting started on Season 10. Which will be no small task as the 10th season of this show we have huge things in mind... huge.
On a more personal note I'm beginning making some leeway on Dead Fantasy and other projects of passion of mine.
And on a even more personal note, I'm feeling somewhat empty these days. It's getting harder and harder to remind myself how lucky I am, despite the sacrifices I've had to make to get this far. It's a privilege of many sorts to work on something th
Red Vs Blue Season 9 Episode 17Oddly even though I've been offsite for about a month now. I'm still working everyday. I don't think I know how to relax lol. But ah well, at least I'm somewhate more rested and ready to kick some more ass.
So this here is episode 17 of rvb season 9. This episode particularly has the longest uncut action sequence I've done to date.
I've always felt whenever movies do what's called a "long take" that the action itself kinda suffers due to the simple reason of being safe and laking the polish of editorial. Particulars come to mind like Hard Boiled or Tom Yum Goong.
So I was like why not? I have the advantage of editorial despite living in the realm of action choreography. It being animation, why not do a long take?
Red Vs Blue Season 9 Episode 15I need to be better about updating here. You are afterall artists and coleagues that I respect.
So anyhow, we've wrapped this season and I'm back home in the northeast breathing a bit spending time with the girlfriend, doing the preliminary research for next season. As well as getting assets ready for Dead Fantasy, and... other projects.
In the meantime here's the latest episode of Red Vs Blue Featuring my work:
It's a very exciting time with a world of possibility in front of us. Believe me whatever I didn't get to fit in this season is going to be twice as good next season.
Red Vs Blue Season 9 Episode 10.
So as always I'm ridiculously busy. So busy in fact I'm missing out on birthdays, anniversaries, childhood friend's wedding's, life period. Soon this will all be done with though and I will get a chance to breath and speak. Until then I literally cannot stop.

A quick update on my absenceHello DAers!
My long absence due to multiple projects (and teaching, and graduate school) is probably a month away from coming to an end. I apologies for those who sent me IMs and didn't hear back, sometimes for months. If there is a rush it's almost always better to contact me through my website contact form, as I'll see that right away.

Cinematic Composition and FramingI have recently started to dive into cinematic composition & framing to try to add more depth to my images.
I thought it would be kinda cool to explain my thought process with my recent image. "Lily's Favorite Bar"
Step 1) Get the basic idea figured out.
My friend, the commissioner and I agreed on the concept of Ash being the bartender serving an eager Lily and disgusted Willow.
Step 2) Find out who the main focus should be in the shot.
I wanted Ash to be showing off her villainous personality and be in control of the situation but not the main focus. So Ash was used as a framing device for the real stars of the image.
Step 3) Add Subtle clues to help give the audience a better understanding of the characters and where to look.
Making Ash larger helped portray her control over the situation. But not the main focus as she is looking off to the side to help guide your attention to what she is i
