Hey everyone, I havnt posted anything in awhile, and figured I'd give everyone an update.
I always created photomanipulations because they were fun, and of things I couldnt find a lot of online, if at all. So it has come to the point where I Evolve my work, into the next level, and thats animation and film. Thanks to school and experimenting around a lot (Thus lack of my presence online), and can now do movie special effects!
I also have purchased good camera gear, and have been making movies for school. One of my dreams has been to make my own mer movies, and over the summer I was able to get that chance, it was literally a dream come true.
I have a vast collection of tf media, so I know what has been don a thousand times, and what I want to see done right, but rarely see. My first goals were to beat out the youtube kid shows that had basic cgi, and now know I am fare past them.
This summer I took a trip down to new york city and met up with several mermaids who worked with me to get the shots I needed to create my first mermaid short film. Since then I have been working on it and editing it, with a bunch of the transformation scenes already finished, Its called "Mermaids of Coney" and as you can guess was filmed at coney island. Its about a mermaid who brings her younger friend to the beach to let her spend the day experiencing being a mermaid, shortly after they transform, the younger girls friend shows up randomly surprised of her new form. The older mermaid then offers the friend to join them in their mermaid experience, and is given a special potion that she sprayed on her legs to transform. After that the mermaids take to the water, experimenting with their new tails, having fun in the water. After everything is done, one by one they crawl up on the beach, until their tails turned back into their legs, and they walk away.
The movie will have a narrator instead of using the mermaids voices, it more or less will be a story being read to u. Making this movie has been a thousand times more fun then manipulating images. Instead of trying to find images that complement each other and can tell a story, takes a lot of time, and was left with a screen capture; My original intent in all of this was to create a higher standard then whats currently out there, and shoot for as realistic as I can, because I am sick of that fake looking crap.
Right now school has 90% of my time, so I can only work on it here and there, I still have lots to do, but I think I should have it ready and online by Dec. I can probably make a trailer so you can all see what I am talking about when I'm criticizing most industry professionals and their usual laziness towards the subject.
Anyways, cya all later.
