Contracts are Signed!

Wednesday I headed down and signed the contracts for the artists fund. It's official! And just a little intimidating. I have until January 31, 2010, to have a completely finished .mov or beta sp tape submitted by 4:30pm. Storyboards are about 75% done, and character/set design are about 40%.
I should be finishing the vest in 1-2 more days, and will be making a sweater but with slightly larger needles (2mm) and only 1 strand of veragated yarn so it'll go much faster.
I can now order supplies, and start getting serious about this! Pictures and notes to follow!

I'll be working full time at my day job during this project, so it'll be a time crunch for sure! That said - I have a little unrelated animation planned to film tomorrow, as a fun celebration - hopefully find time for it and post it this weekend!

Do you need someone to do music for you again?

I was definitely hoping you'd be interested!
If you're up for it I can send you the link to the Celtx file - I'd love to have you involved on this one!

Sounds good!

Mike said...

Yay!! Now the fun part, shopping for art/building supplies!! :)

I'll mail out those props and cds Monday now that i've got your address RIGHT.

Ooooh, exciting stuff!
That tiny knitting looks amazing. I am in awe that you are going to try knitting with sewing thread! I think the smallest thing I've attempt to crochet with is perle yarn used for lace-making, and that sends me cross-eyed...

Mike Adair said...

Yay! Thanks for letting the rest of us come along for the ride!

emmyymme said...

Thanks Mike! I still haven't gotten your package out yet either so no worries :)

Ceri - I think I'm going a little cross-eyed using the embroidery cotton as it is! I'm doing 3 strands at a time right now and for the gloves will probably do the 1 - scary to even think about!

And Mike - hope to keep it interesting to follow!

Refering to your last blog entry - when it comes to real small scales while working with miniatures: This guy broke through the sonic barrier a long time ago http://www.snopes.com/photos/arts/microscopic.asp

And congratulations too !

emmyymme said...

Oh wow - I'd love to know what tools he's using! Suddenly mine feel very big....


Thanks Justin! The online support will be much needed I think by filming time!

Hi Emmyymme - I am working on a blog entry about Wilard Wigan, but can't link here useful links. Further, I don't want to spam.
I found a video, where he sculpts figures out of toothpicks with a scalpel...
And your miniature knitting is so beuatiful! Beautiful artwork, through all of your postings. And thanks for all that detailed documentation you keep alive here. I as a Newbie am profitting much form the more experienced.

Nice!! Good Luck on your project!! Waiting to see the pics of the sets a lot :)

Thanks Michael - I'm enjoying the countdown to your site :)

And Aarvind - nice to see you here! I'm sure I'll over-document the set once it gets going - in the mean time I hope you'll send more of your photos, so beautiful!
