Passport Sunday Fun
If you are a Passport Member then today you’ll get an advanced look at one of my newest creations. It’s just halfway done, but you’ll get a sense of it nonetheless a find out more about the creation process.
Machine Elf 48 in the Works
So here is my latest one that is still being created. I’ve decided to make this one pretty much 100% symmetrical. It’s actually a bit more difficult than it looks. The music is not final, but I do quite like it. I build these in 10-second intervals – that is – since its 30 frames per second, I choose what the scene looks like every 300 frames and it extrapolates in between. Whenever I see a 10-second span that doesn’t quite look right, I go back in and make some adjustments to the math for that particular keyframe.
Also, if you missed the Passport newsletter last week keep an eye on the eBooks download section of your account for my latest book being added in the coming days. 🙂
Daily Photo – Ancient Future Festival in Glenorchy
I’m headed off for a fun festival on an island over there called Ancient Future. Since don’t have any active cases of Covid19 here in New Zealand, everyone is out and ready to enjoy the summer solstice (the longest day of the year) in just a few days. I didn’t get to go to Burning Man for year 11 in a row, so the chance to get to a big festival where no one is wearing facemasks sounds pretty radical. Why not? The whole event is sold out, so I’ll be one of the 300 hippies out there. Even better, I’ll be taking my son Ethan. I took him to the burn about 7 years ago, so this will be another fun experience for him. I’ll be out doing everything from taking photos doing yoga, hiking, listening to music, dancing, reading, attending workshops, and seeing friends. It’ll be epic.
