My buddy Sean Tiffany - link mentioned the “structure in the backyard” I’m building. Its suppose to be a shed (at least that’s what I’m telling the neighbors) but its really going to be my workshop/studio to shoot animation. (The Tiff actually came over last week and helped me get the roof on) Thanks man, I didn’t realize you where so handy with a screw gun. I’ll put up a few more pics once its finished
I wanted to thank everyone for all the comments I’ve been getting lately. Its really encouraging to see that other people are actually interested in what I’m doing.
Yesterday Shelley Noble (her site is super incredible by the way - link) asked if the story I’m working on is something that I really care about. The answer is yes, very much so.
It’s basically a story that I made up years ago, I tried to do it as a comic, but for a variety of reasons I never could keep going with it. Comics and me just never seem to click, I love the idea of doing a comic, but when it comes down to actually drawing it, I just don’t have what it takes.
Anyway the basic premise has been in the back of my mind for years, and as things have happened in my own life, the good experiences and the bad, I’ve let them sort of, write themselves in to the story.
Things like breaking up with a girlfriend, fallings out with certain friends, or when my grandmother died, those were all significant moments in my life, so in the story there are scenes and characters that parallel those events.
I just hope I can actually pull it off, and learn this whole stopmotion animation thing well enough to do it justice.
See you next time
