Sup' Neillipino. Uh...that one is hurting. Anyway, so I did a quick doodle that has nothing to do with anything. I needed a little break. Turned the brain off and doodled.
I figure this guy is a hyper drive pilot.
They would be join up with a company, go through a series of grueling tests, and if selected trade most of their human body to become a hyper drive transport pilot. Because of the inertia and all that shit, their bodies would be more machine that human, fused with the ship. Their families back home would live well, but they'd never see them again. Hundreds of years would pass between shipments. Pirates and other corporations would try to board their transports and steal their cargo, or even just attempt to destroy them. They would do a dance that could last months. When they finally would arrive at a colony, that colony could be gone. Wiped out by plague, beasts, each other. Then the long slog home would have to occur. That is when the fears would begin to take hold. Wondering if earth remained, or if you were now as foreign to the inhabitants of that old solar system as...WHAT the fuck am I going on about?
Jesus, I just drew a space guy. He has glowing eyes for fucks sake.

Neill, people actually read this blog. Holy shit, I thought they were all getting re-directed here looking for Prometheus shit. But there are a few.
So I recently posted some bug shit, and people are wondering how that blends with the Native American shit from before. It doesn't. Two separate projects. the problem with Bukwas was it's a lot bigger than I though it was.
Metameth is more doable. I think it will be a good start. If anyone really wants to read the mini script, just post in the comments section. Maybe I'll do it if there's enough interest.
So, two short films, not one.
So these shots are locations, well, possible locations.
I think this will be pretty effing cool.

Hey Neill, did you make your own Aliens for Alive in Joburg, or did you hire someone? I think I'll end up making my own shit, but only because I have no money. I never have money. Ever.
So making my own short on no money is kind of like...what every guy who ever made a short probably went through.
I'm diggin this one though, I feel like it's doable, and pretty cool. Fairly basic. I'm going to carve shit out of foam. There's not a lot of effects work, but just enough to make it more than your typical Youtube video. I actually have it written out already, now I just need to find the time to storyboard it.
Anyway, so here's a concept from it.
More to come.
So, like I said shit's been crazy here. I needed to de-stress a little, so I drew this rabbit. Then I put an elfy big bottomed thing in it. I don't know why. I really don't. I spent an hour on it. Quick easy fun. Of course, I could have been doing something useful, but oh fuckwell.
I know what you're thinking, there's better way to de-stress. There's an easy one that involves a computer and a few napkins. But you know what, I think bashing a hobo in the head with a computer and suffocating him by shoving napkins in his mouth is wrong. Just wrong.
Hope all is good, chili fry.
