It's been a while, but I'm about to make a comeback... again of sorts? I guess we all drop off of social media now and again, and despite my need to expand my reach for my short film @thetearsees, the state of the world has only recently allowed us to make moved in the physical world.

I won't bother you with too many details, but I've been learning a lot of visual effects lately because our lead animator dropped out of the project due to the pandemic. He had to uproot his whole family and move five states away.

So, it's been After Effects and the plugin Red Giant non stop. I have definitely learned a lot of new skills in AE, which is why I'm gonna share this rad music video I found that was animated using AE.

I'll begin sharing updates really soon. Still trying to find a more entertaining format for those who follow me here as well as on The Tear accounts.

The Tear is my cosmic horror short film and cinematic universe.


If you want to know who I am and what Distant Signal is, check this out. It's sort of a manifesto. The TL;DR is that I've won an award for producing, make a lot of reality TV, live in LA and think that artist and media incentives are misaligned and serve large corporations and not independent artists.

In 2019 the goal is to produce the short horror film, Changelings, the world of that story and to build a community of filmmakers that are enthusiastic about filmmaking and crypto currency.

Man, I wish I knew After Effects to do this kind of thing!

Is this your work?

The chops in this video are brilliant.

Great see you’ve been pushing things forward with The Tear - I’ve been super curious when things might come back with it!

Oh my goodness. I forgot to write the "I found" bit. No. I did not make this animation. I'm just looking at a lot of AE animations and VFX as of late and thought this was well done.

Ah I see, that’s cool!
Still awesome. Really like that style.

Glad you’ve been inspired lately!
