I've been busy growing up

It's been a while since my last update. That doesn't mean I haven't been reading stuff though. Or working on things. Other things. I have nailed down what my animation is about. I'm doing a short animation about Orson Welles and his relationship with his daughter, Christopher (yes he named his daughter Christopher, yes she's sane, yes she's married with kids, and yes she writes "BrainQuest", a series of educational games for........children). It's partly based on the autobiography Christopher Welles Feder wrote about her relationship with her infamous father (In My Father's Shadow: A Daughter Remembers Orson Welles ). I say partly because it was impossible to find that book in Lebanon; I'm still trying to laugh that off. What does that have to do with fakery? Well, Orson Welles was an actor/director/magician, all of which are related to faking stuff. Not convincing? Christopher's relationship with her father was a shell of what it was supposed to be, it was...fake. Still not convincing? A movie by itself is fake, because it shows actors faking emotion, on fake sets, with fake props.

In other more visual news, here's what we (Paola, Mirella, Dany and I) came up with for the rotoscoping project we've been working on. Yes it's a fight scene. Yes that's me in red latex. Yes it's awesome.
