Well, I’m coming to you live from the cubby hole that is Roberts Media Lab, waiting for a test sequence of the film to finish rendering. Special thanks to Vicky Funari for showing me a great way to add a nice blurred border to the footage and to Jeff White for installing the “Old Film” plugin I found online. Of course, because I’ve added so many filters to the film (to take the clean, well-defined HD video and turn it into old-looking footage), it now takes 50 minutes to completely render a 3 minute scene. Thankfully, James Joyce’s Ulysses is here to keep me company…
…as well as good ol’ Hulu.
But the footage that comes out of this long, long, LONG wait looks fantastic. Fritz Lang himself couldn’t spot the difference (probably).
Also, because I’ve now entered the time of shameless self-promotion, here’s the link to my recent interview for the Bi-Co News: www.biconews.com/?p=24293. For those who couldn’t find it, it was buried between the article about the Lacrosse team applying to live in Drinker House and the one about the Frisbee team’s tournament last Saturday. Go Donkeys!
Oh good! Now I only have to wait 30 minutes!
