Digital Graphics

We've had a surge of new people joining the team lately, and I can't express how excited I am about it. So many great folks are on the team, ready to lend a hand. It's wonderful!

So that we can publicly thank everyone, we'll have a list of the crew on our website when it's up and running. I'll be sure to post a link to it so you can admire and of course provide feedback.

Recently I've been talking with Zach about some digital graphics needed for the film. I know we'll be using the images I've labored over scanning in the past two years, but they need to be more interesting in the final film. We'll break up the talking heads (interview sessions) with these images to keep the audience following along attentively. Zach showed me a 2d to 3d means of altering the images, which I'm ecstatic about.

He put together a quick mock up of some of the things we discussed over beer with another filmmaker, Josh Mills. I'm really excited to start adding those types of graphics to the film. Take a look at the demo he put together, which helps immensely since I'm such a visual person:

Now, back to that rough cut of the film...

Triangle Film Gathering Photos

Last night, a group of people all passionate about film joined me at Hi5 in downtown Raleigh for the first Triangle Film Gathering. It was so much fun! Many thanks to everyone who came out last night. To those that couldn't make it, I hope to see you at the next one!

The Triangle Film Folks Gathering is Tonight

Tonight a misc group of people interested in filmmaking will gather at Hi5 in downtown Raleigh from 7-9pm:

The group is rather informal, but is one of the beautiful case studies that proves the value of social media--or rather the value of genuinely connecting with people over common interests, and having tools available to help share information easily. The evening formed so organically. A few folks interested in beer and film talk became a group of about 20.

If you're interested in filmmaking, please join us tonight. If you're a writer, photographer, actor, director, producer, angel investor, or simply interested in talking film, join us tonight. We'd love to see you there. There's no entry cost, membership fee, or hidden agenda. Simply, a room full of people passionate about film.

Special thanks to @RobLaughter for generously helping scout locations, without any expectations of a public thank you.
