1st Feature Script Reading

Over the weekend I finished the 11th draft of my feature script and had some friends around to do a reading of it. They gave heaps of in-depth feedback and solid critique which is what I needed. The outside perspective is really helpful as after days and days of writing you can kind of lose perspective and you miss things that don’t really make sense or aren’t particularly strong.

I’m going to take 6 days off the feature and then I’ll get stuck back into it with fresh eyes. I’m not sure how many drafts it’ll take until I get to the final version but It feels like I’m getting much closer.
I’m really looking forward to finishing it and getting stuck into other pieces of production which will roll out quicker.

Gotta keep pushing on!

New blog. New beginnings.

I AM ALIVE!!! 

Hey everyone,

It’s been about a year since I put my last blog permianlacube.wordpress.com into hiatus. Since then a lot has happened, I had many low points and many high. I got depressed, had a breakdown, got dumped, got a bit better, partied, made new friends, made new art and had an exhibition or two.

I also moved to a new sharehouse in the rad northern suburbs of Melbourne and got a new bedroom studio happening. It’s pretty cramped but cosy.

Here’s my new bedroom studio.

I’ve also been VJing at a bunch of clubs, bars and raves. Which while pretty fun and exciting it has made me realise that it’s not what i want to do with my life, so after a gig this next Friday, i’m hanging up my pixellated beer stained gloves.

Instead this next year I will be concentrating on 3 different things.

1. Work for myself: This means short animations, script-writing, art for exhibitions and sound design.

2.Work for other people: This means music videos for various bands, collaborations and the occasional commission.

3. Music: Songwriting, composition, bass guitar, singing, ableton, piano.

With all of these things I’ll be pretty busy but i’m going to constantly update this website several days a week.

AIM OF THIS BLOG

1. I want to show my work, what i’m making, how i’m making it and why.

2. I want to showcase great alternative independent animations, great art, and i want to show YOUR work!(so get making and create some awesome stuff, i want to see it.)

3. To share resources for independent and young animators. Whether tutorials, books and articles I’ve found or tutorials I’ll write.
