2017 Video, Filming, Animation, Artwork

Since, literally, THE very first day of the semester I got SLAMMED with a spur of the moment project with an ABRUPT DEADLINE, and a TON of pressure to preform. The BIG thing was a competition for Art On The Marquee which is this MASSIVE, HUGE, building made of gigantic screens.

I had to come up with a proposal, demonstrate it,  and I was so scared of failing, and especially scared that my original idea wouldn't go over very well... that it might be TOO WILD & WHIMSICAL, that I came up with a  2nd idea... which I was also forced to keep, and also submit.

The whole ordeal was nerve wracking, and THE MOST intimidating thing I'd EVER had to do. If he hadn't made us do it mandatory, I'd never have tried, because it's SO massive & scary. I had to REALLY reach & dig down DEEP into my past experiences and see what I could come up with. He was very hard on me, and wouldn't accept anything less than whatever he believed was better. I even contacted the curator, and he helped me.

This project has NEVER been done at our university, and this class I was especially invited to be in by the instructor. Not only was my best & favorite project chosen, but 2 other students (all girls) from our class.

So, I am working on that now....

I have been SO BUSY, that I had almost no time to do anything accept watch a few films with my daughter on the weekends.

But, despite how busy I have been (and I've only NOW gotten a bit of a break) I'm actually VERY happy with my life. I've been networking, building relationships, and I feel valued. I have not been happy in my life, at all, in years... I don't even know when the last time I was actually happy.

I started Filming with my friend Rolland for his newest independent film.  I've been participating in the table reads since last year.

I got free tickets to BOSTON WINE RIOT 2016 because I'm YELP ELITE but Mr. Wang refused to go. SO, I asked my friend, and he was like: YES.
Then, he was like: Hey, come work on my film.
So, I was like: OK!

The film is called "The Holy Maple Tree" and it's a lot of fun!

We JUST started filming last Sunday, and we will film every Sunday. The first scene we films if the 90's party scene(s).  I actually brought a lot of my own stuff, makeup, lighting, props, etc.

I wouldn't have done ANY of these things if it hadn't been for my instructor at UMASS Boston. I really did NOT have the confidence to do anything anymore, until he pushed me. And he pushes me a lot. He totally changed my life. I'm very grateful, and very lucky.



I also have a contract with a company to do a jewelry photo shoot soon. The necklace finally arrived! But, i need to get a model soon! 


I have been SO busy with shooting all kinds of things since the first week.

Here's my recent films:





And, here's my Digital Media class project:

Black UniGryphon Fursona Logo Animation Concept Art 002

I actually thought I was going to have a lot more progress with this since last month, but I didn't really get to working on this that much, or the storyboards I'd wanted.

I got a mixed response on Instagram.

I think most people confused the 3rd sketch with the 2nd sketch. Whatever. Can't make people love or understand you!





Here's what I did, so far, in order:




Here's just another extra bit I randomly did for that Seven Days of Artworks Challenge:



There's so much I could do with this concept, but I just REALLY need my anatomy skills, at a better level. I'm running out of paper tho'.
