Monster Mashup

I’m about to teach a kid’s film production class at PNCA a lovely arts college here in Portland. It’s been about 15 years since I’ve taught kids film making and back then we did all our editing in video, not on the computer…. and when I was in film school we edited on the archaic Steinbeck flatbeds. When we made cuts, we literally cut the film, little sharp razors, spliced fingers, bleed for your work! So I’ve spent the last little bit getting up to speed on iMovie, since we’ll be using it for the class. My vote is still out, there are some great tools there, but I miss the hands on aspect of the old old old days. Needing something to work with, and not having the right firewire for the camera, I scanned my son’s fall journal and set up the music in Garage Band.

    Hi Xander –

    Your artwork is very dynamic and dramatic. I like it –
    mostly enjoyed the storm cloud and the evolution of the skeleton.

    If you want to, draw a picture of your new playhouse – with the swings and everything on it.

    Bye for now.
