I wanted to tell you about my current project.
Near the end of my last year in college I wrote an abstract fiction that I found eerie, beautiful, deep, yet simple. I spent almost 3 years editing this short story and it was very difficult. When it was nearing completion I was uncertain about how to publish it. It didn't seem to do well as an illustrated book. This brought me to the conclusion that the best way to present it was in the form of a short animation. I've spent about nine months composing the musical score which was no small feat. I also story boarded it top to bottom. Now I've begun the next stage of creating the final artwork and semi-animated clips. So far I'm elated. I spent an entire day learning After Effects just to make an eleven second clip. Now I know that it must all be done in After Effects in order to bring it to its full potential. Granted, I will need to purchase the effects suite Trap Code in order to do this which is not cheep. But it will be worth it. The film should be a total of 15 minutes once complete and hopefully the first of more like it to come.
Stay tuned for more news on this and other projects.
