OTHER MUSINGS

EXTRACTION is back on the back burner for a bit. I’m getting ready to move from Pleasant Grove to Eagle Mountain (about 20 minutes away) and with what work I’ve got coming in and prepping to move, I just don’t have the time to work on EXTRACTION.

There is another reason however. I’ve met with a local producer and we are now trying to make it better than I ever could have on my own! So, it’s not gone and if after I move and am settled in, if it doesn’t appear to be moving forward, I’ll once again work to bring it out by myself.

I DO NOT want EXTRACTION to fade into nothingness.

In other news, MODO 901 was officially announced yesterday and it looks AWESOME!!!! It won’t be shipping until May 27th, which is a little under a week away. I’m so looking forward to getting it. I’ll probably be working on most of my future 3D stuff in MODO now. I’ll post more about MODO 901 in the coming days as I get a chance to read over all the goodies being posted online.

HOUSTON, WE HAVE IGNITION

So, it’s been a while and I’m stil no further along than I was back in October. 4 months and nothing?!?! Well, that’s not entirely accurate.

I have been slowly working on things in the background, but not a whole lot to show for it. The last couple of weeks, I’ve been working out what applications I want to use to create EXTRACTION and the follow up animated movie. I ended up deciding on Blender and Lightwave3D as the two apps I’ll use. Next was trying to figure out a workflow that would allow me to use these programs together. Continue reading

IT BEGINS…

I’ve been writing a story that will become one of my next animated projects. This will be the project that is meant for my Granddaughter.

In the meantime, I’ve decided that I need to get my rear in gear and finish my animated short EXTRACTION. Several of my friends have been asking me to finish it for the last year or so, and I guess it’s time I finish it.

I’ll be posting video/podcast updates as I work through it. Hopefully I can get it finished in a relatively short amount of time.
