in my graduating semester at artcenter i took a documentary production class (along with 6 other classes for a total of 21 units) to, well, produce a documentary.
i had grand ambitions for it, but upon completing a 10-min short (it's all i could do given the time-frame) i realized the 'traditional' documentary really didn't interest me at all. in fact, i now sorta despise how most documentaries are made now. it's always talking head/voiceover + b-roll + all manner of profundity.
and while i was immediately pleased with what i had accomplished given my lack of experience with the medium, and the really quite crazy semester workload i had, soon after i graduated i found myself unable to look at my film again, let alone show it.
i find myself incredibly annoying. my voice is oddly effeminate. there are a 100 cuts i would change if i cared to. and there's a goofy, over-idealistic, decidedly kitsch quality to it that is deeply, deeply embarassing.
but in the end, i guess i still want people to see it. so i'm posting it here .
p.s. i haven't given up on my documentary project, but i'm overhauling every preconception i had and looking to do something far more random and nutty and a lot less by-the-numbers.

don't know why you have only 4 stars(!?) but I gonna try and fix that........great work man.....
ok this is the last time i dip from the ol' bucket of nostalgia...
just realized i never posted my epic grad show wallspace...
pretty sure i didn't take these pics as the hands attached to my sleep deprived body would have shook too much to get a clear picture. anyway, the top was my main space. not much to look at. i really could have used more space :/. the girl next to me wasted soooooo much space l;akjsdf;jkasj;kldf. anyway, the box thing on the left was made out of foamcore and has lots and lots of crazy scribbly writing on it. the black square is a 24" lcd monitor with my motion stuff + my movie (see below) on a loop. the footage was in 720p, and stretched in software to compensate for the crappy vga-out on the laptop it's connected to. (trying to get a widescreen movie to display on a widescreen monitor with a 4:3 laptop is lots of fun indeed). the lcd screen is the only part visible, the bezel was hidden by getting scribbly paper and inserting it in between the bezel and the screen and jiggering it about. thankfully that didn't break my monitor. those yellow things are my illustrations, and the black things are my photos of my mom and her work used to convince my school to give me an extra semester to study (free, and for super special people like me) so that i may make a documentary about my mom and her work. it worked. the headphones (sony and sennheiser studio monitors) are connected to the laptop via many adapters and a volume booster i think. there's a little shelf with my postcards (all depleted in this photo, which made me quite happy). in the lower right is a little hatch hidden than opens up and reveals the laptop, just in case i'd need to reboot it or adjust it after installing the big white foamcore box of doom. i ended up opening the hatch many times indeed, even DURING my gradshow with its huge crowd and judgemental eyes... i don't know why my laptop screwed up so many times. maybe it overheated or something. i made sure to turn off all power management and shut down unnecessary processes, but it still would break. i even added vent holes on the top and bottom of the box so that cool, life-giving air could circulate. final cynical assessment: too much stress and work for not enough reward.

love those paintings from your portfolio. something about them i've never seen before, especially the first two. perhaps it's that combination of very opaque with transparant colours - their respective surface qualities, and how some things show a lot of form and others are kept quite flat. compositions and colours also real tight.
first and second head job have a similar feel to them, last one is for me more one-sided.
nice to see your work man

I laughed quite hard over your videos. I totaly get your sense of humour...I think. There's something insanely funny about your narcissistic sense of depression. I'm still laughing. But, wait a minute. Maybe your serious? In that case, my condolences. No matter what way you look at it"...nobody gets out'a here alive". How funny is that?
Like your work.
By the way, I was totaly floored by your insect and animal studies. Wow.
nice work man..im liking the sketchbook trip to the zoo and the studies of animal skeletons..beautiful caligraphy there.
your paintings look incredible on the wall, mustve been great to see them up. always a good feeling. and those animal studies are well and truly immense.

Hey dude, most of your stuff is pretty awesome! If it does not get too chaotic (just my taste probably), but I like the lightness and freedom in your drawing and most of the time your usage of color.

Oh man I can't believe I never saw this thread before!!! I had seen some of your paintings in the FF before and loved them, but I just went thru all of your SB and I still can't pick my jaw of the floor. I love how much you experiment with different mediums and styles, and own every single one of them. pld:
Awesome work, definitely subscribed!
Haha, I can't believe you made that 3rd strike thing, haha It was a big deal for a tiny bit on SRK, you play fighting games?
I planned on going to AC either summer or fall of next year, maybe if you are still around I'll say hi.
