Hello, Roto

http://www.flickr.com/photos/jpchan/2899354917/

There’s a right way and a wrong way to rotoscope your footage. The wrong way involves Photoshop, countless hours, and carpal tunnel.

Unfortunately, I haven’t figured out the right way yet.

…and he eats house trees for breakfast. He is known to frequent parts of our nation’s capital but had never been caught on camera until now.

Eating Natively

http://www.flickr.com/photos/jpchan/2894120728/

When in DC at 2am, ya gotta do as the natives do, especially when it means scarfing down a half-smoke with a side of chili and cheese fries. It was worth the 20 minute wait in line.

Return of Frankencam

http://www.flickr.com/photos/jpchan/2879976190/

The unholy combination of the Canon HV20 and the Cinevate Brevis has gotten me through two shorts, more than paying for itself in 16 months of ownership.

But as good as the images can be from this setup, the rig itself still looks hopelessly dorky. Can’t have everything, ya know.

Red vs. Pink

Pinkberry annoys me, but that doesn’t mean I’m 100% anti-fancypants-Asian-pricey-yougurt. The $5 shake at Red Mango kinda rocks. The $0 August 19, 2008 special was even better.

The Rhode Island International Film Festival was fun and friendly. The Rhodies have an interesting way of making hummus.
