A fast February wrapped up with visits to some post-production offices and much discussion of AVID workflows etc. Also finally got my youtube channel connected and working… as soon as I start posting stuff on there, you’ll hear about it on here.
This weekend I’ll be wrestling with ‘withoutabox.com’ submitting ‘The Tiny Spaceship’ to a few more festivals. Next week: more meetings.
And more cartoons! The fast spread of my ‘Another LA Cartoon’ blog continues to surprise me.
Well, I didn’t win any Oscars this year, but at least I didn’t win any Razzies either… that is always a plus. I’ve been brushing up my video editing chops and will soon (and finally) be putting SOMEthing up on my Blunt Farce youtube page… exactly what I’ll be putting up, I’m still not sure.
Meanwhile, the blogs continue to attract their audiences. Following the advice of some more widely read blogger-folks I am now consistantly putting up a new Ask A Punk post every WEDNESDAY and a new “Another LA Cartoon” every Thursday… but I have also been motivated to put up some “Special Editions” of ALAC when the spirit moves me, or when I capture something timely with my camera – such as the just posted special ” Jonas Brothers ” edition…
Not much to report in this quiet pre-dawn monday, but there are some bits of news.
I discovered AFTER returning to Los Angeles that THE TINY SPACESHIP was featured in the Seattle Weekly’s short preview of the festival. That was pretty cool.
It is official – My new cartoon blog ANOTHER LA CARTOON is taking off far faster than my painstakingly nurtured Ask A Punk advice blog has. Even though it still isn’t popping up on search engines as high as I would like, word is spreading and I’m getting good feedback. I’m trying to post once per week, but at the moment I have an additional special & unexpected “Celebrity Edition” up featuring Oliver Stone.
It also seems that my “Tom” or “O’Connor”-themed photos are catching on… people are submitting pics to me now! Here’s a pic that just came in from one of my writer pals…
Just got back from the Weekend in Seattle. Saw The Tiny Spaceship on the biiiig screen for the first time, and in front of a sellout crowd of 800 great Sci-Fi & Fantasy fans. They laughed in all the right places, and I only wish that everyone who had helped and worked so hard on the film with me could have been there to see it. I WILL be posting a (poorly framed) video I shot of the screening, that’ll give you all some idea… but it won’t really capture the good feeling. Everyone in Seattle was great & kind.
Seattle was great in ALL respects. The people were outstanding, the weather was BRISK but better than what we left behind in SoCal… and yes there was great coffee everywhere. That town is now at the top of my list of “Places to visit again.”
TINY SPACESHIP is GO !
Very excited about this weekend’s trip to Seattle for the shorts festival… but never fear, before taking off, I have put up a new Ask A Punk post AND I’ve put up the next installment of Another L.A. Cartoon. Interestingly enough, the new “cartoon blog” is taking off, and after just a week on the web it has nearly as many links and readers as Ask A Punk has managed to accumulate in a year… so welcome and thanks to all the new readers.
