Love in the Time of Advertising

Love in the Time of Advertising is online. The fascinating thing is how many people I have come across over the years that had a hand in making this film. It’s been a long time coming, and I was lucky enough to see several early versions. But even then it was really strong… and really knew what it was. It just had to go through production. I guess the earliest versions I saw were in the last few years of production, but I’d have loved to have seen some of the versions way back when it was still in story development. That would have been fascinating, as it’s such a wild idea and getting the tone, the world and the rules of the world working would have been quite challenging. Anyway, it’s well worth checking out. An inspiration to short filmmakers.

Frogs

For some reason I was inspired to design frogs last week. Don’t worry the compulsion has passed. I just keep adding doodles to my website gallery. I’ve started going to a regular sketch group again. I used to attend a really good one in Austin, Texas on Wednesday nights in a Cafe. I’m in Los Angeles now so I began my hunt to find a good alternative. There’s actually several and it may come down to where I’m working as to which one I frequent at any given time. But for now I’ve been going to the ‘Drink and Draw’ in Casey’s Irish Pub in Down Town LA on Thursday nights.

Updates – Character Designs and Film Credits

I’ve been drip feeding my portfolio website with new entries and content lately. There’s some new sketches for some pet projects in the gallery. Some more movie credits in my filmography. Even a little animated project I did while I was freelancing a few months back. While I’m at it ‘Devils, Angels & Dating‘ will be awarded an honorable mention at the Santa Monica Independent Film Festival this weekend. I’ll be going along on Sunday the 22nd of September to absorb the atmosphere, see who there is to see and swap notes with the other filmmakers there. Fingers crossed I’ll meet a few Devils team members while I’m there.
