Motionographer

 

If you're like me and can't get enough of watching incredible hi-end motion graphic design, just wishing you could come just a little closer to that bar, you might have heard of tween. Well, it looks like tween is dead.

Don't feel sad because it has made room for a new incarnation, Motionographer. If you have no idea what I'm talking about check out the site and get lost. Be prepared to see the best of the best in motion graphic design, animation and filmmaking. Also be prepared to be inspired.

Panavision HD System

 
Since I split my time between screenwriting, editing, motion graphics and cameras on a daily basis I get an extreme education via the internet. I found this blog entry on The Artful Writer of all places. Screenwriter Craig Mazin talks about his love affair with the new soldier on the HD field that was used to shoot Scary Movie 4 and also the upcoming Superman Returns.

It's All In The Edit

 
So many blogs that cover the non-linear world of editing revolve around the technical/gear side of the process, rarely delving into what actually makes an edit work. Go to my other blog, this savage art... for info on a recently released DVD of the film Keane by writer/director Lodge Kerrigan. The DVD offers up his theatrical cut and Steven Soderbergh's producer/ghost editor cut. A good way to see how the nuances and meaning of the film can be altered depending on who is doing the cutting.

An Experiment

 
I just finished editing and authoring a DVD for a friend and I was left with his short film footage. So I started playing. These are the results:

Starting off here we have footage that originated on Super 16MM then transfered to DV for edit and export for DVD distribution. Here is the original footage clip:



This is what I did to it:



Looks strange, like Eraserhead strange but it's Big Wheels meets Sin City meets Charlie Chaplin!

The process: First I gave it the Sin City treatment by isolating the one color, this time red and limiting the rest of the colors in the Color Correction tool in FCP. Here is a great tutorial via Ken Stone. Then I treated the footage with a number of Nattress filters along with some Magic Bullet and was surprised on how great it looked. Not because I doubt Graeme's abilities or The Orphanage for that matter but I was impressed. Did a little time remapping and voila! What a difference!

Note: These clips are encoded with the H.264 codec so you will need Quicktime 7. Craaaaazy!

I Have Emerged

 
If you are one of the three or so people who stop by zeroes and ones you have probably noticed more blogging activity in the last month or so. After a few needed months developing a screenplay I have returned to the other side, 1.5 drafts later and here I am. You can see my progress on this savage art... I've been creeping back into the video blogosphere little by little, prompted mostly by the need to get back to my workstation. After receiving a phone call from a producer I work with to work on a gig it made sense. Things I will be looking to do: more actual filmmaking. I would like to experiment with the new cameras and workflows out there. I will also attempt to add After Effects to my resume by purchasing and learning 7.0 (when, I don't know). All this in between more writing and developing screenplays. You see, it's a full time gig being a part-time filmmaker. I wouldn't have it any other way...
