my own rolled


The Roll Yer Own show was greatness. Definitely reminds me of the shows 911 Media Arts Center throw in Seattle. Something fun about seeing all this work that goes largely unseen. Of course I met the very talented and super friendly Ward Jenkins. I tried to absorb as much talent energy as I could when I shook his hand. Also met a gaggle of the great guys from the Harvey Birdman show. I’m terrible at remembering names, but the good sir Steve Vitale let me know that Brian de Tagyos, Darrell Phillips, Bryan Capik, Adam Fuchs, Dan Bodinof, and Nate Pratt were all there and I know I met most if not all.

Shamefully, I’m a face guy not a name guy. It was great meeting all you talented muthas regardless!

Of course I hooked up with my old schoolmates Chris Fox (animator on War Photographer) and Steve Eidson. Two goodfellas that are mighty powerful with the pencil too. Always a pleasure, gents.

The whole thing went well. Glad to have participated. Hope I can stick around longer next time and take some studio tours.

Thanks to Charles Judson from CinemATL.com for snapping the suave pic posted above. Sounds like those kids are doing some good things over there, too.

Oh and here’s a rough, comp character recently filed in the round file. See ya, wino!

    Joel! It was a great pleasure meeting you, too — and I was trying to absorb all your artistic greatness with that fateful handshake as well. I hated that I was running around like a headless chicken, but we should definitely reconnect soon!

    Next time you’re in town, please let me know and we’ll hit up Primal Screen for a tour.

    And thanks for coming down to showcase your amazing video on the big screen! It was fun, wasn’t it?

    Wow sounds like this was a fun show. I’d love to see stuff like War Photographer on a big screen with some kickass speakers. What sort of format did you project it in? I’m a film student so I’m always interested in the technical side of these things like the film stock you used, etc.

    So that’s what your visage looks like,eh? Not that far from what I expected for some reason. I want that old man jacket. Looks comfy!

    Sounds like it was fun time. Wish I could of seen it. Any more postable pics of the gala?

    Here’s a direct link to a mention on the CinemATL’s blog: HERE.

    I’m in there somewheres. I’ll probably mention this link on my blog, too. If I can only find the time.

    toliverchap: We had the screening at The Red Chair, a bar/restaurant in Midtown, Atlanta. They had a rather nice video projection system with three large screens to view the films. You can see one of the screens behind Joel in the shot there. The colors in the actual projection were not that off, like most projectors I’ve seen, so that’s one of the reasons we use that venue. Don’t know much about the sound system, but it was definitely kickin’.

    Thanks for the comments, comrades.

    Geen- I think the additional gray really ups the sexy factor. Hey, Grecian Formula hair dye… SHUN!

    Ward- I had a great time. Some of the animation was really amazing. Can’t wait to have another excuse to get down there again. I definitely want to peek at the innerworkings of the mighty Primal Screen. Thanks for posting the link too!

    toliverchap- As you probably gathered from Ward’s post… there was no film involved in my little project. It’s been a while since I’ve dealt with film really. Back in school we used 16mm and it was crazy expensive. Especially being students ruining several rolls. There’s not many feelings worse than spooling up a roll of completely blank footage. The RYO show looked really good even though. It was the first time I’ve seen the video on a big screen myself actually.

    Steve- If you ever get an old man jacket, it needs to be all scratchy and uncomfortable. Keeps you bitter. Heh.

    Thank you all, good citizens of the internet.

    Thanks for the response. I know about the cost I’m finishing up a project on 16 mm and that will probably be the only time I’ll ever work with film, unless I make it big. So with something like War Photographer, which has such a classic 2D look, did you shoot it on an animation stand with a video camera OR was it all done on the computer?

    It’s mostly a Flash production. A few effects were done in Photoshop and the final output was with Premiere, but all definitely done in the computer. I’m cheap!

    Wow you got a great look with Flash, it seems more like older animation than something done on a computer, I’m impressed.

    My silver isn’t coming in fast enough, in my opinion, but its definately there. Wish I’da known you were here last feb. I didn’t even see that event listed anywhere…

    Yeah man I just slipped into town real quick-like. I’m stealthy like that. The event’s fairly low pro with mostly industry types attending is seems. Good times though. Maybe I can make it down again soon, eh?
