Sorry for the radio silence! I have been swamped with various projects (as the resume page shows) and with finishing up “ROC” and starting to pull things together for my next project!
I’ve been meeting with the fantastic Niko Onslaught for the soundtrack to ROC, and Zach and I are very happy with it! With any luck, we will be letting you all know the address for the inaugural screening of the piece, where Zach and I will be there to chat and I will be spouting info about fundraising needed for my next project!
Keep a look out for a video of Niko at work and for a new and improved storefront where you can actually buy t-shirts with PayPal and without emailing me! Yay!
Again, I want to thank everybody who contributes to my work in any and all shape or form. You know who you are!
You’re all probably eagerly awaiting the arrival of your goodie bags—and a date for a first screening! Well, we’ve been working hard on both, and here are photos of the tshirts for you, which we made ourselves:
Yesterday we finally got to see the roche boutique! we set up camera and shot the product before opening. unfortunately the shop was a bit too tiny to be able to film while customers were inside, so as the shop activity grew we were forced to shoot elsewhere. and after there was simply no other exterior angle of the shop and surrounding neighborhood to be shot, we felt satisfied enough to allow some time to dedicate to tourism.
we didn’t get to see the eiffel tower or eat a croissant while wearing a beret, but we found a mask shop and got to wear a hose head while climbing the 300 steps of the sacre coeur and saw the moulin rouge. there is plenty of art hanging in the louvre which were made with roche pastels, so tomorrow we plan on returning to the city in order to get some of those visuals.
today we plan on finishing up all of the interior shots of the maison du pastel, and if the process of gradating the colors goes smoothly for isabelle and margaret, then we will be able to have the entire process of inventing and new color on film. they also have yet to name this color, but if that also manages to be solved today then we may be able to have a labeling sequence. in any event, we have enough now to compile footage from other colors to illustrate the entire process, so today will be getting the substance that will make the film more than just an illustration. this is turning out well and is forming a wonderful and lighthearted film that we both can be proud of, but today we plan on capturing whatever mystery footage that we can all feel we are lacking, in order to really make this special. so that is our very vague goal for our last day, and probably most difficult, but we’re optimistic that we’ll get it.
