Presentation at 3D-Con 2018

A couple weeks ago, I gave a talk at 3D-Con about how I’m using Smitten 3D as a self-directed masters in filmmaking and animation. If you’re interested in low budget DIY indie animation, there’s a lot of behind-the-scenes fun in this presentation.

See if you can spot some imagery from “The Problem with Friends” in this poster. It took me a moment…

The Problem with Friends wins Best Video at 3D-Con

Woke up this morning to find out that my music video “The Problem with Friends” won Best Video at the 2016 National Stereoscopic Association Convention (3D-Con). A big thanks to Heidi Engel and Chris Belin for their musical contributions on the track. Also, a big thanks to the folks at the National Stereoscopic Association for the honor.

The Simple Carnival at the Mill Valley Film Festival

Had a great time at the Mill Valley Film Festival last weekend.

Met a bunch of interesting, talented people. Got to see “A Geek Like Me” projected in the gorgeous Christopher B. Smith Rafael Film Center. Saw some great movies, and one memorably awful one. Met up with an old friend. Got to know some other friends better. Saw the lead guitarist from Metallica. Was interviewed on cable TV. Saw Yoda and Indiana Jones! (Kind of.)

As an aside, if you look closely at the 3D Sideshow poster from the festival, my hand-drawn mug is in the bottom row.
