As the formerly discussed project, “Dumb Animal”, waits for proper attention, time and funding; I’d like to resurrect this blog for my current animation work. These current projects I have chosen to prepare me for the techniques and skills needed for “Dumb Animal”. ”Dumb Animal” is, may I remind you, a music video for a song on my wife’s upcoming album to be released this year. http://shutupdreamcrusher.com/
Artist-woodworker, Henry Deposit, is the most experienced member of our crew. He is quietly crafting a miniature treehouse in his basement workshop for the video. The treehouse is entirely made out of wood; even the replica Shaker wood stove. Progress is beyond promising!
I believe I have found diorama artists in my own figurative back yard. Nice when some of your crew lives 5 blocks away from the studio.
I contacted a very talented man in central B.C. about helping and he miraculously said he was “quite interested” but the distance is just too inconvenient. I’d love to work with you in the future, Steve, when I can fly you down!
Yes! Lest I forget, we need a kick-butt diorama artist. The video requires a miniature forest and treehouse as well as a couple “indoor” sets. The artist will not be doing this without help but their skill and know-how is much needed.
So far, we have some amazingly talented artists coming forward to fill different positions on this project.
Our aim is to make a timeless piece of art that moves a large and wide audience.
