Just a brief update for all you intrepid internet individuals!
Contrary to popular belief, im not dead. I DID go to Jamaica recently though and that was a blast! However, I have called you here today to discuss that! (though you will be getting a nicely edited video of that trip at some point. Speaking of which, see the bottom of this post for a video of a trip i went on last year)
Nope! I simply wanted to grant you a little info on what plates I have spinning in the air.
Aside from regular work that brings in the money, of which there is a lot of right now. (a lot of work, not money. Well, the money too... lol) I am currently putting the finishing touches on a fun Kinetic Typography piece that i think you all will really enjoy. I certainly enjoyed making it! Also, I am working on a couple vids from the trips ive been on recently. One being to the Sequoias, the other being Jamaica. But those will take a bit more time to get out. And on the long range, my wife and I are going to start on a short film.
I know what you may be thinking... "Patrick, didnt you start on a short film awhile back? What ever happened to that?"
The answer is... When spinning plates in the air, sometimes one crashes to the ground. In this case it was the Or Kribos inspired "Betrayal" short. I DID start on it. Got through early storyboarding, but it was a bit ambitious and unclear, so it went on indefinite hiatus. And thats the story im sticking to. :)
SHORT TERM: You will be seeing the Kinetic piece id imagine in the next few weeks if all goes well. So be on the lookout. Its almost done, so thats a definite release! And it scratches my Designer/Animator itch.
MID TERM: A couple of "trip" videos are coming. One has been started, and another is in a holding pattern behind it. Those WILL happen simply because I really enjoy editing AND because my family demands to see it at some point. That, like i mentioned, scratches my Editor itch. (and director itch a bit, as i was the one who shot the footage)
LONG TERM: A Short film of undetermined length at this point. But no more than 10 min for sure. I don't know what its about. We are just in the ideas stage. But it WILL also get done as i have a serious Director itch that needs to be scratched.
But like i said. Its longer term because i gotta go through all the stages of production. But i will keep you informed as time goes on as to the status of the project.
And that is what is going on in my world. I wish you all the best, and i will keep you up to date when i can.
As promised... here is the first trip video i put together for my Family (and for fun). Its a little rough around the edges, but it was fun to shoot and edit. I hope you enjoy!
