Anatomy of Santa

This is a sort of a holiday homage to the famous title designer Saul Bass. He did everything from "Vertigo" to the original "Ocean's Eleven" to "Good Fellas." It is based on his opening title sequence for "Anatomy of a Murder" and features Santa Claus.

And here is a split screen of the same piece with Bass' original artwork included for comparison.

"Your LA" News Piece

So I saw someone I hadn't seen in a while and he told that he saw me on TV a couple of months ago. I immediately thought he was mistaken. Why would I be on TV? But he insisted. It later donned on me that maybe there was a news story about Instant Films, the 48 hour film festival I entered in November. (You can see my submitted short below.) Sure enough "Your LA", a local news show aired a piece. It is all about my film. I remember a little crew on set and being interviewed, but I didn't know what it was for and that we were the only film being followed. In any event, here it is:

Also, it is a new year (Happy New Year by the way) and we are really trying to commit ourselves to getting this blog off the ground. We are setting a goal of posting a new video every two weeks. I can't imagine us generating a finished short film at that pace but we can at least post videos related our movie making activities and show you what we are up to in a raw form as well as a finished product.

Thanks for watching!
