Falling Down

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.

Decided I was feeling in sort of a cyberpunk / Akira mood.

Production Blog

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.
Update! 09/19/2014 I'm still doing boards but I took a break from boarding to actually model some things and concept more of the world and things. Progress!
Small Update 1/21/2015! I've been working slowly on modeling assets, but we moved across country and that has taken up most of my time. Now we're in San Francisco!!! Here are some models :D
