Video Still from my film in progress, nearly finished. Click on the image above to visit the film blog. Additionally, have a look at the official trailer here. I’ve been working on this 11 minute short film for over a year, making subtle changes and multiple edits, and am excited to be done.
I chose the year 2012 has been an impetus for me to complete a lot of my larger, more long-term projects, such as the graphic novel, Two Machines, which I spent several weeks earlier this year tidying up in Photoshop, re-editing some panels, as well as adding some fresh artwork to supplement the scope of the narrative. Both this film, and Two Machines are linked in the storyline, as parts of the graphic novel are loosely tied-in with the film. Publishing may come later down the road, but the work itself is complete. I’ve been working on some music projects and four new oil paintings, as well as designing quite a few textiles and flyers for a few clients. It has been immensely satisfying to complete these projects, as I am ruminating about a few future projects. These will less digital, and more tangible.
Above is a video still from footage I shot while visiting Egypt in 2010. This was erected in the Second Century BC. It was originally an Egyptian city called Nubt, which means City of Gold . It became a Greek settlement during the Greco-Roman Period.
