I've been working with pencils and paper again. After growing up with these tools glued to me, i took decades off only to return to them two years ago. This sketch is the first one i did since around 1991. Yikes! Time flies.

Clutch vs Gorillaz: The video mashup?

I love the new video for Gorillaz' Stylo, but unfortunately i find that the song doesn't fit the visuals. The track is a bit to, um, casual (for the lack of a better term) for a video that contains muscle cars, cops, guns and Bruce Willis. So i took the song Big News I, from the great American rock band Clutch and their 1995 self titled album, and recut Stylo to it. I think it works well.

I was in Yorkton recently to take in a bit of the festival. I met some friends and checked out the new Panasonic twin lens 3D camera. 3D still seems like a novelty to me and is a few years away from practicality on the low budget scale of filmmaking. Plus i don't really know how many stories (whether doc or fiction) really warrant the 3D experience.

The main reason i was in Yorkton was to guide a group of high school students in making a video (shot and edited) in about 5 hours. It was a great experience that was facilitated by Tony Hrynchuk of Fahrenheit Films. The students had the task of shooting their interpretation of a scene from Alexander Payne's Election. They did a really good job and if i get a copy of it i'll throw it up here.
