We recently lost our lead animator. The pandemic has crushed the film industry. 98% of all production disappeared, and with it, post-production. So, during our lockdown, I dedicated myself to working out my vision for The Tear myself using Adobe and Red Giant.


Be kind, this is my first simulation using #trapcode Particular and Form. Or maybe it was Mir. Good grief. There are a lot of tests. I forget now. 😅 In any case, it was a good idea to expand my skillset at least. Maybe I can charge an extra $15 a day if the economy doesn't evaporate.

I know it doesn't look like it now, but these tests to get better. My goal is to be open with my process. I know I've been pretty silent. I've got a lot going on all at once and I've been learning and getting better at this new craft. I love the Red Giant suite and I've learned a lot about the craft and pain of creating within this medium. It's extremely tedious, at least for me.

I also have a new respect for After Effects. I used to avoid it like the plague, I even made a video about it, but I'm discovering a new set of powers that was always at my finger tips, reminding me of the power of we all possess, even when a pitiless, cosmic maw is bearing down on your planet and your very soul. ⁠

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.
