Gearing Up / by Jaz Malone

For some ungodly reason, my brain woke me up at 5:30 this morning. So after feigning sleep for a couple of hours, I decided the time would be best spent doing work. I animated something! Well, started to. I'm working on a film based off of my trip to Annecy, France.

I know, it doesn't look like anything the 9 Old Men would be really proud of, but at least I'm working, right?
My desktop background is an image from Gilda Snowden, one of my favorite abstract painters from Detroit.

I also did this thing:



...which is the first test for my senior film. Again, it doesn't look like much, but I'm trying to see what I can do with a camera. Disregarding the fact that I have a regular digital camera (sans tripod) and my bedroom to work with, I think if I just keep testing, I'll come up with something interesting. Then when I do the same things with a really good camera, lighting, and a set--not to mention a tripod to keep the images still--, it will look 10x as cool.
