Movie makin'

Getting close Neill. Getting so close to making a little flick. I wrote out the script. I have the locations. This shit is going to be pretty fun. It will probably fall apart horribly and crush all my fantasies, but hey, you never know. Maybe it will just crush some of my fantasies.

I started watching a bunch of your old shorts. great stuff, even now, years later they hold up. I wish more were on iTunes. You adiColor Yellow vid is. It's awesome btw.

So I spent about fifteen minutes on the above image. Just a quick test to see if I could pull off some simple matte's. Did I spell that shit right? Mat? Matt? Matte? Dicksuck? Anyway. Here's the original crappy cell phone image I took so you can see what I did.

The buildings are simple piece of an oil refinery that I duplicated and rotated it a bunch, then merged, selected, airbrushed, and presto. It's not perfect, but if I spent a few hours on something like this, we'd be good to go.

I took the picture out our hotel room window at Great Wolf Lodge. Howling Tornado mother fucker, so fun. My kids fucking love that place. Love it. I love it too, total money grab, but I love it.

And if you don't love it...log boy will git you.

Eyes gonna' git you!

Neill, I'm sure you feel the same way, but being a genius fanboy is a double edged sword. So in the Prometheus trailer there's a guy in the famous Space Jockey room, and he's human-ish, wearing an alien-ish space suit.

See the chair there? There's some open piece where the SJ's head is supposed to go. 

So...that dude is more than likely the Space Jockey. 

It's a huge human dude. 

Vin Diesel is the Space Jockey.

So maybe there is a time travel element, I mean this is the Lost guy writing, right? Maybe we end up making the aliens, and that will explain the human skull on the original alien.

I'm not sure how I feel about all this. 

The trailer still is awesome. Great design, and it's Ridley, so it will probably be a great film regardless.

Yo, yo, yo! How's it going Neill? One thing I really dig about you is you're passionate about  the at story that you want to tell, because it's yours. Movies like that shine. It's like Pan's Labyrinth, you can tell Guillermo wanted to tell that story. It's like your District 9, and I'm sure it will be the same with Elysium.

So, anyway, I've mentioned that I have tons of ideas. Tons. I'm learning that now everyone does. Sort of a rarity. Well, I finally started writing again. It's been years since I did it with any seriousness. You can tell I'm a great writer because of this blog. Why's all you laughing?

The script I'm writing is called PUMPKIN, and this guy features in it. I had a little bit of time to color this guy while my kids are watching some chipmunk movie. Kids have no taste. None.

I don't want to give anything away, and this guy is featured near the start, so I don't mind showing it. I sort of fucked up the drawing, but, meh. I'm far more anal with writing than I am with art. I recently deleted about twenty pages because I went in the wrong direction. It's tough to do, like removing a testicle. But then you realize, you had to remove that testicle, because you replaced it with something better...like..a...uh...tentacle. 

Shit, that WOULD be better, tentacles instead of testicles? Holy fuck. You would be a god in bed. I really need to get into mad sciencetry. I think that's a profession.

Hope shit is good

Undead day gig

Neill, you know what sucks. Google's new interface...s. What the shit? Could they make these any harder to read? I had a 'try out the new look?' button, that I foolishly pushed (as I was trying to update the look of the blog, oh hey, now posts are missing, sweet), and now, there seems to be no way back. Seriously, this shit sucks. Maybe it'll grow on me. Maybe once I dig into it it'll make sense. maybe it's a game, and I have the difficulty settings too high.

 Wow, what an awesome mural!

Any way, so here's some work shit. See, at my day job I'm a fancy pants art director. I point and hover around my artists and say, 'Do this, do that, rub my feet, make like an ottoman...' stuffs like that. I wish I could show you some of what we've been working on, oh hey, I can!

  Psst, this isn't even the good stuff!

You know what else is cool with the new posting interface, when you hit enter, it goes to the top of your paragraph...sometimes, instead of starting a new paragraph. Heh, that makes sense. Good work guys! The image posting is seriously nicer though, I will give in to that.

Anyway, chiggity check the vid. I'm in it. I'm the hefty dude.

St Clambus!

Merry St. Clambus Day, Neill! How was your holiday? Mine was great.

Did Clambus bring you anything special? He brought me a hooker. Unfortunately, it was a male hooker. A TJ Hooker, and it had an std. So I threw it away.

If they had named it BJ Hooker, it would have guaranteed seven seasons.

Still, got to give it to Clambus for trying. I mean, he doesn't even come from this galaxy, so he's a bit off on the customs and traditions here. Still, he's out there riding his massive star beast handing out unusual gifts and stealing kittens every year.

Hope you had a happy one!

Doug, Feeling the spirit, Williams
