La Onde

So we had to do a one minute animation yesterday as a final for our "Vector Graphics in animation" class at PCC. I did a Cindy Shermanesque sea voyage set to a song I wrote in an electronic music class I took in the Fall semester. It's pretty ridiculous, and kind of awesome. La Onde is french for "the wave" though not a sea wave, which would be vague. hmm.

Music Video in the workings

So we learned how to do rotoscoping in Flash last week using video footage. I thought I'd try and make some footage that I shot for a music video a little more interesting. Here's the test I turned in for a project. I'd like to eventually do this to the whole video. It's shot in a friend's Winnebago, btw.

It's so amazing to feel like anything I can come up with out of my head is possible to make using these programs. The outcomes are limited really only to my imagination. Now where did I put it...?

1000 frames per second. High Def.

This is what it looks like.

Band Photo

So I spent a few hours last night working on a non-cheesy band photo for my band. It seemed like kind of a pain in the ass to coordinate an actual photo shoot, so I took the easy way out and just used a combination of photos from our myspace page, and one from a video I shot of my self. I think it looks pretty cool as far as band pictures go.

Our first show, by the way is May 30th downtown at the Tiger Bar (NOT the Hungry Tiger, this place is on Broadway next to OutsideIn). Get there early 'cause I'm going to try and get 86'd halfway through our set, ha ha, just joking, although please, nobody buy me alcohol in shot form, for the love of god.

A Wolf loves Pork

Rad picture animation posted on Cartoon Brew this week. We've been studying stuff like this in my mm231, this is a bit over the top, "time on your hands" deal. It's very playful, and well worth your 3min.

Why I love Video Gum

Every single time I go to I emerge ten times happier, and now a bit envious I didn't produce this music video. Good god, I'm in love. or blown away, if you will

oh yeah!

Time is flexible

Another beautiful sunny/rainy day in Portland. I was defeated in posting a comment on Vange's blog about how I, too, love scalding showers. Boo. Anyway. Listening to Nick Cave and remembering why I love the Hammond Organ, and how stoked I am to be playing with a band that has one. We actually have a few shows booked a month or two away, I'll be posting more info closer to the dates. I'm actually trying to plan a bit of a house party to with some really fun bands on the bill.

I just finished yet another Flash project for school and thought I would link it up to the page to show it off. You can find it here and play around with it. It's has movable buttons so you can practice making flower arrangements. I know, SO useful! The assignment was to figure out a creative way to use draggable buttons. Try it out and tell me what you think!
