The last few weeks have been a little crazy… I have experienced being laid off, experienced crunch time in City 7s timeline, and I have started to try and gather everything I do together to see if I can’t make it as a freelance artist again…
Long story short, I have been pretty busy, and really bad and posting…
The largest task I have undertaken is in the composting the first 25 seconds of our short Zombie Movie, City 7. As an artist and graphic designer I have had some experience with matte painting, which is basically the term used to describe how an artist might help a director create a scene that just can’t be filmed. Some of the greatest examples of matte paintings in film, are in the Original Star Wars films.
When I was in middle school and lived in San Francisco, my Dad and Step-Mom took me to see an exhibit of the largest single collection of Star Wars props, it was pretty damn cool, and I think it was there that I really started down the path towards art and graphic design as a possible career path. I saw a handful of these paintings in person and going back to watch the films was just impressed with how they did it.http://youtu.be/L7r5mz9aTlA%5D
Of course with a budget somewhere in the neighborhood of only $2500 we did not have quite the number of resources these guys did! But we do have a cool little intro!
More to come!
