Looking to Upgrade…

I’ve decided that I want to continue using MODO to make EXTRACTION in. However, 902 SP3 is showing its age.

So, I started a GoFundMe campaign to try and raise the $400 that would be needed for the maintenance upgrade fee. You can get to the page here – https://www.gofundme.com/upgrading-modo-for-short-film

In the meantime, I’m working on a new video to be posted this weekend. It will cover the campaign as well, but I wanted to this out there right now.

Until next time!

 

WHERE THE #&$% ARE WE AT?!?!?

Well, I’m in the new house. Been here since July 17th. Took about a week to get TV and 2 weeks to get internet. But it’s all up and running now.

One of the first things you may have noticed is that I moved the EXTRACTION blog to it’s own sub-domain. I did this so that I could change my main website to be more oriented towards getting client work. So, there’s still some things here and there that need to be fixed up in the new blog, but I’ll get to them!

In my last post, I mentioned that EXTRACTION was on the back burner and that I had been talking with a local producer. That fell through. The producer, kept wanting to make changes to the story. It’s my story. You want to buy it off me and make it, great! Just don’t pretend that you want to help me and then push your ideas onto my story. Continue reading

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
