In a shameless attempt to gather as many people as possible in one place, I wanted to pass on this event I’m sorta co-hosting with Deb Eschweiler and Jamie Beedy. We wanted to have a meet up that wasn’t exclusive to one city and was still drivable to anyone in the midwest. So, Chicago, why not. I’ll be coming up from Indianapolis, Deb is coming from St. Paul, so what I’m tryin’ to say here is that we’re setting an example and you should come too.
It’s a casual hang-out, no raffles or speakers or anything. You can view details and RSVP on the EventBrite page.
Look for an actual wrap-up within the next few days.
Until then, you can read my daily blogs on Creative COW in which I pondered a thought each day of the show, kind of. Mostly stuff that was interesting to me on that day that I figured would otherwise not come up in an end-of-show wrap-up.
I don’t think I mentioned (other than a tweet and a calendar update) that I’ll be at the Small Tree Communications booth as a guest editor next Tuesday and Wednesday at the NAB Show. Their booth is in the post-production section, the lower south hall. Specifically SL6005. If you’re planning on attending the show, stop by the booth and say hello and stuff.
Re-post of my calendar, for good measure. Come to all the things. Say hello. Wave. Email me creepily from across a room. Whatever! It’s cool.
A film I edited and audio mixed in December and February was selected for the Frog Baby Film Festival at Ball State University. It was directed by Tyler Engle, and it’s a film noir about a doctor at the end of his rope. You can see it at the university on March 30th at 7PM.
Last night was the first screening of Ingenue, directed by Kate Chaplin. I’ve mentioned it a number of times, but to recap, I was the visual effects artist and title designer (and DVD author…and blu-ray/screener maker..) for the film. The “premiere” was held at the Indiana State Museum IMAX theater at 7PM after red carpet arrivals. The screening was sold out — over 400 seats. Lots of people in the audience obviously knew the cast and crew, so they were very engaged with the whole event.
A couple weeks ago, I was invited to be a guest on FLIX on Revol Radio. Unfortunately, they also live stream the show and archive it on YouTube. Kate Chaplin and I were invited to discuss the upcoming release of Ingenue and sci-fi movies in general. We also talk a bit about visual effects, I attempt to explain the VFX upheaval in Hollywood, and we discuss our involvement in local film together over the last few years.
