I need to lay out a plan for the next few days, i should do this all the time really, im bad at being productive.
And very good at procrastinating.
Thats probably why I like this blog so much, and the final show preparations: they are both ways for me to feel productive without actually doing anything (other then writing)
Today i walked to uni to cancel my print time. I am booked in at 11 tomorrow morning, but when i was there on tuesday he had no paper, so i had to source my own, that sounds easy enough but its not. I needed A1 paper, the right kind of paper with the right kind of coating and feeling. Most places sells rolls and sheets, but the sheets are only up to a3, maybe a2. and that just wont do. And a roll is a good 100 squids. So i went there to cancel, but then he found some paper after all! I was gonna go to The print space to get it printed, but I save much more money this way!
I’m printing a 60 x 60 cm print for the red gate gallery where i have a show its starting next week, i have to invite everyone!
I wanna apply for more exhibitions too, but thats probably a bad idea! At least for the moment.
Anyway, i was talking about a plan, and now im gonna make one!
at the moment im shooting a time-lapse of some white flowers dying, they will be dead enough by tomorrow so then i can get on with things.
This is what i need to do:
– finish white flower time-lapse.
– print print for exhibition
– do another octopus animation (i got a new one today, he is big, im gonna do one arm at a time)
– do stop motions of toys (the bugs, the little animals, the soldiers etc.)
– stop motions of sweets (marshmallows, gummibreas etc.)
– do more time lapses of meat
– scan and animate the last of the drawings
I need to get one with putting it together the video. I think ill have it so that one animations is put on top of another, one will cover another up, that way it can be longer and still be interesting. I wanna find out how to use one of my drawings as a particle in CC particle world in after effects too.
ok im gonna go distract myself again.
