Transitioning slowly from blues to reds.
Another scan of painted celluloid.
I think of Japanese woodcuts and waves.
Acrylic inks and solvents, sandwiched between celluloid, then photographed.

Some recent painted frames.
More kaleidoscopic playUncategorized
A continuation of test footage using a kaleidoscope and composition by Mike Vernusky. Considering different color combinations, textures, rhythms. I’ll continue to lay down raw material like this, then begin to play with individual frames.
A short video of the same painted footage in the previous posts. Composition by Mike Vernusky. Test sequence for a larger project?
In advance of my screening at the Cucalorus Film Festival, I returned to “Autumnal” to massage a few transitions that didn’t sit well with me. A few stills from the video:
A test sequence w. a composition by Mike Vernusky.
Back to animating individual frames for Cosmos. Cutting each image down to a frame or two is tedious as all hell, but I can cheat it by cropping them to a few seconds each, then running the whole clip in fast motion. Nuance and rhythm is lost, but it gives be a basic idea of what all these frames might look like when animated.
More stills from a painted filmstrip for Cosmos, along with a short, simple animation. I like WP’s gallery mode for images; makes it a lot easier to product a visual storyboard in short order.
Thoughts of Jupiter and Saturn on my mind; no wonder my shoulders feel heavy. Continuing to work with inks and solvents to see how they behave. From a series of video sequences I’ve been working with, a timeline and a return to visual storyboarding. I think I might use just this sequence as a process video.
Strangely enough, WordPress’ Flash-based uploader ignores the alphabetical order in which I named the image files. Thus, my storyboard becomes random. Interesting…
Creatively on summer holiday. A test video from the “Polar” gestation period. Part one. Picture at 18 seconds in. Not at all pleased with this Flash-based compression that WordPress uses, but I’ve yet to discover a decent format that doesn’t kill all the detail.
A single painted filmstrip, plus the twirl filter in Final Cut Pro toolbox. Not serious. Just seeing what pushing a button will do. Not much. But it’s pretty.
