It's about time I showed up. Here's the studio I built.
I am very pleased with it. Now I am going to make a film. I still need a flatbed scanner. Any ideas for inexpensive [legacy] scanners with a max document size of 13.5X17in? I'm usng 16f paper for background sketches.. so technically I don't need a scanner that big. But I like keeping background interaction as loose or as locked as it needs to be.
1 hour 37 minutes 29 seconds 13 frames later... After making over 2300 cuts across 100+ scenes, I have been wrapped from upstart local feature More Than Diamonds. I signed my contract and began work on December 3rd, 2009 and completed delivery tonight. Pending some act of god or unforeseen disaster, the uncompressed feature is on its way to color correctors in Burbank, CA on a couple of terabyte drives.
I will be abstaining from freelance work for as long as I can to continue work on Mutwale. Several visitors to the studio seem very impressed with the setup and the few shots I have going. Now all I need is a large-format scanner on the cheap and some more life drawing. Always with the life drawing.
