Tribute to a legend

Sad news this weekend with the passing of a great. He was three of my top ten film characters Butch Cassidy, Henry Gondorff (The Sting), and Frank Galvin (The Verdict - no relation! ha ha!). Anyway real shame, he was one of the best.

I had a wee stab at Audrey Hepburn, there's a thread goin with great stuff on the drawing board at the moment. I'm tryin out these new brush-pens I got from Fran and Mooney's mate Christian's shop on Thomas Street, well worth the browse in there.

-edit on this one. I tried another one because the first didn't look like her at all. Think I'm gettin worse. The second one looks like a Disney villain on about sixty fags a day. Still the blog is still alive!! ha ha

I found this site the other day and just did up a real quick (two hours or so) animatic on the current assignment, the site has loads of great animation and interpretation of the audio files, well worth checking out 11 Second Challenge. Mine is a bit ropey. After spending a year and a half up to now, without the audio for the shows I've boarded, it presented something completely different. I hope there was enough time to read the biscuit getting dropped into the cup gag. Anyways all fun and games, back to the real job now.

The future of air-travel with the ever-present oil crisis. As hot air goes we have plenty of people running our country to keep the traffic in the skies going for the next year alone! ha ha!

Cheers for reminding me Colin, the scene in Strangers on a Train as seen in the reflection of the victim's bifocals. Great filmmaking and one shot out of a shedload from that one particular fim. I unfortunately flicked on a movie channel last night to find Van Sant's Psycho remake. What a tool! Shit film. Where did execs Universal see the merit in giving a lesser filmmaker, with inferior acting talent, the opportunity to recreate an all time classic. Soul destroying.

Anyway I got the link to this site a while ago, thanks to the John Nevarez blog, from where I sourced the screenshots, well worth checking out for filmmakers, storyboarders, whomever. Misenscene101 Enjoy!
