"Hah, you got me Don, thanks for the kind words, and I totally agree. The bringing imagination to realization cg thing is not actually part of it and the tool animation is not the actual opening either. This is an exploration to see which direction I…"

"A short film has a beginning, a middle, and an end. It can be as long or as short as it needs to be to tell the story. This looks more like a test (and it's not a bad one!) One thing that is a dead giveaway that a film is too short is when the…"

Bringing Imagination to Realization

Posted on December 11, 2015 at 3:00am 8 Comments

Hello to all the good folks out there!

One crazy man and his dream. I would like to keep track all of my progress in one place and so will be adding to this blog as I go. Please scroll down and check it out:) Newest additions at the bottom.  I have, over the last several years, been learning some of the magic and mystique of an art form that first inspired me as a kid watching Ray Harryhausen's skeleton warriors. I am doing this because I was injured on duty and need direction and a source of positive energy. Meditation comes in many forms and this is mine. Fighting darkness with The Force.

I use TEDCO Studios as a frame of mind, a form of initial focus point for the energy this adventure has been generating.  

I want to thank every person who posts, shares, helps and encourages others. I would not be able to have accomplished what I have in the last months learning character creation and stop motion and lighting without your help. I am truly grateful. 

Now that I have learned a few more etiquette guidelines for this site I will start posting the things I have been working on in a blog to try to keep things in order. Clearly visible in the picture of one of my workstations, you can see that I work my fingers to the bone in everything I do trying to learn as much as possible over the last few months from all you incredibly talented people out there. ;) Thank you all so much. Oh and the hand…

Thanks for the compliment. I've been a stopmo fan for approximately 38 years, so I guess you accumulate a little knowledge over time, even if I don't actually practice the art very often. Good luck on your projects! (BTW, my avatar is a she! She's Graziella, the star of my last production...which was also the first bit of animation I've done in 30 years.)
