Beetle Blasphemy screening at Bend Film Festival
|I've just received word that Beetle Blasphemy has been accepted into the 2008 Bend Film Festival that will be held from October 9-12 in Bend, Oregon. Unfortunately with my busyish schedule, I can't make it out there but it seems to be a really awesome festival with wonderful prizes. I'll post more info when I receive it. Here's a link to the festival's site: www.bendfilm.org|
Update: A screen cap of Beetle Blasphemy is being featured on BendFilm's homepage. Go check it out.
Pixar Facility Visit on the Horizon
Last week I was invited to the Pixar Education Symposium which is taking place the Monday after SIGGRAPH at Pixar Studios in San Francisco, CA. The all day event will include a guided tour of the facility as well as a breakdown of their pipeline and various sessions covering all the major elements of a production. There is also a session covering what they like to see in demo reels. It should be a total blast and I'll be posting pictures of the event (we're only allowed to take pictures in the atrium) when I get back.
Beetle Blasphemy On Unicorn Media
|Unicorn Media has accepted my film to display on their site. Basically I get a certain percentage of the ad revenue from users that view the film. So if any of you have time, go to Unicorn Media and search for Beetle Blasphemy. Here's hoping for some revenue.|
Beetle Blasphemy 8th Place at Twin Rivers
|So apparently this festival has already taken place since I was informed that I won 8th place in the Animation category there. Why do they go all the way up to 8th place you ask? I figure either they received a massive amount of films and they couldn't with all honesty only pick three for the placings or, and this is much more likely, they want everyone to feel good about themselves and there were only 8 animated films. I'd like to think the former but the latter is more probable. Anywho, I got these funky laurels to show off so that's cool.|
Beetle Blasphemy Accepted Into the Twin Rivers Media Festival
|I have recently received word that Beetle Blasphemy has been accepted into the Twin Rivers Media Festival held this May in Ashville, North Carolina. I'm not sure exactly what date or time it will screen but there will be updates at http://www.twinriversmediafestival.com. I will post details when I get them. For now enjoy the laurels.|
Loopy Locators added to Code Section
I've added another script to the code section of the site. This is a python script which, based on a selection of various edge loops and edge selections, will create a locator or joint chain through the center of those said selections. This script really helps with laying down joints for fingers since they are usually at odd angles. Loopy Locators makes it a simple task.

Phoenix Film Festival update
|I just wanted to post an update on the Phoenix Film Festival. They have updated the film list interface so now you can see more info about Beetle Blasphemy as well as some fancy screenshots. This seems like it will be a really great festival. Sadly I will be teaching at RIT during it. Oh well. Click here to see the page and also to get more info about the festival.|
