I was watching Falling Down while I was working and the opening sequence struck me. I love the way everything is almost monochromatic, and warm tones giving the whole sequence a hot feeling. The way Michael Douglas seems to look trapped and claustrophobic in the way they use extreme close ups and framing of him being in his car, and the slow build of minor annoyances in the environment is all extremely well-done. I decided I would try and do a little cartoon painting of one of the last shots from that sequence in my own little style as a sort of study in cinematography I guess. This is what I came up with. It's not perfect, but I enjoyed the process.

I have begun production on my second short film (I got the itch again :D), and I thought I would post some progress as I go along. I debated on whether I wanted to post my boards, but I think I will let the story be fresh and the boards are only in the initial phase right now anyway. I don't want to give too much away. Enjoy :D UPDATE: I'll be adding stuff as I get it done. Hopefully updating the blog will help to keep me motivated.

My wife saw a tree while she was up north and it stuck with her... she told me about it and asked me to try to recreate it. I did my best and I really like the way it came out. I might go touch up some of the issues I see with it later, but I'll call it done for now :D I miss autumn... wow, I know... three posts in the same day! It's crazy!
It seems that I've neglected my blog lately, but things have been crazy and I started working at JibJab Media as a production trainee (summer intern). It's been awesome, but now I can post my film to my blog and share it with my modest number of followers. Enjoy!
