Hi Barbel. Can you tell me about your plans for Boston? Perhaps we can have you at my university. Could you email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know your schedule?
thanks very much.
liebe Bärbel! I hope you'll enjoy your stay in Boston, all the best! I should be in L.A. by December 5th... so I'm sure we'll have a chance to meet personally, I really look forward to it :)) All the best und hertzliche küsse aus Barcelona!
Yeah we should meet. Cindy tried to make it happen at one point, but I was hopelessly busy, which is a shame. Just drop me an email when you're going to be in town, and I'll do the same if I'm ever in Germany (that last part's a joke with my hermit ways these days).
Thank you for your nice comments on my films and music. It's especially nice coming from you because of the quality of work you create.
"Scroggins Beach" is a bit of a tribute to my pal and de-mentor Michael Scroggins. I was doing some experiments in real-time-CGI with the Pulfrich effect, and made the film in a couple nights. It contains an audio track that I created for Michael Scroggins to jam with when he does his liquid light shows.
Cheap dark non-polarized sunglasses work best, the darker and cheaper the better.
It's one of two new films I made this year, but I'm kind of losing interest in film making, mostly been doing writing, but I can't I can't help myself now and then.
Also if you want to see another (destroyed by web compression) movie with Pulfrich, I did a semi-commercial piece for my friends in the band Mudville. That one can be found on my Youtube page
At some point we should exchange DVDs. Mine are made at home out of coat hangers and tape.
Liebe Bärbel! I should be in L.A. until December 10th or so... I'm sure we'll be able to meet there. I'm really looking forward to it :) I'll email you as soon as the details of my trip are confirmed. Viele Küsse aus Barcelona.
I wish I were making a new film. This semester I'm teaching 5 days a week, and I'm unable to focus creatively. I did finish 3 very short animations a few months ago, however. I hope to begin work on a new longer film this summer. By the way, Amy and I will be at the Animator Festival in Poznan this July. Any chance you'll be there?
I made these shorts based on artwork that I already made long ago. One animation was based on a series of prints. Another was based on a series of ink drawings. The third was based on artwork I made about a president and a bear. So one is abstract, and the other two are like short narrative poems.
I love to teach, but I am teaching too much right now. It will end in May, and then I need to get back to making things.
Unfortunately, we won't be able to travel in Europe. We will make one quick trip to Cracow, but that's it.
I'm sure you needed to recover after finishing your last work. Do you have any plans for a new project, yet?
