BOO YA a POST!

Film and portfolio are finished and the art is here. There are a few things that have been posted before but it now has more context. I won't be able to post the whole film for a while because of festival rules and regulations but I think trailers are allowed. So we will see. Enjoy.

I've been following this blog for quite a bit. It's great to see this all put together and I'm really looking forward to seeing the full short.

Quick question: On PORT_017.jpg is that collage or 3D? It's a really interesting look.

Cooked Art said...

Woohoo!

It looks awesome Ian!

Can't wait to see it. Congrats dude.

Hopefully we'll meet up sometime.

Hey pick up a copy of the open show DVD for me if you can... We can do a switcheroo.

By the way festivals are for the weak and you made me type "objwmkmm" just to post this which is a cruel form of punishment when you're doing it from an iPod touch keyboard.

Ian Worrel said...

Thanks Matt. That illustration you are referring to was done with photoshop in a collage-ish style. All the textures are from photographs or scanned pencil textures.

Alan- There you have it. I'll try and keep up the posts to avoid your griping. Festivals can be awesome, but the rules are lame. sometines they have great prizes and maybe I can find someone to finance the production of another film. I spent 8 months working on this beast and now its gonna work for me. Plus your getting a copy anyways so chill.

did you board everything over the summer? or did you start animation and such starting 2nd sem. like what I usually hear? AWESOME POST!

Ian Worrel said...

mj-
I started production in September right as school kicked off. I had some chicken scratch thumnails for boards that weren't anything like the final film. I ended up just making the film on the fly which is way more fun.

Your development art work is so awesome, just so, so, so inspiring.
Through out our 4 years at Cal Arts you have constantly raised the bar, influencing and pushing everyone with your talent.

Oh yeah, i love the scene in your film with the conflict between the Cat & Windmill, it gives me chills everytime i see it.

John Kahrs said...

Saw your film finish the Producers' Show last night. Very impressive. First class from concept to execution, and obviously a great deal of effort to get there- you should feel secure that it was worth it. Well done, and congratulations.

Matt Williames said...

Your film was really wonderful! I am really gonna miss seeing your films in the Producers Shows!

Moro Rogers said...

NICE. (Be sure to tell us when it's online in some more accessible form, so I can show it to my folks.^__^)

Brian B said...

Awesome post Ian. Sucks about the festival rules. What about last years's film? The one following the Tree Herder. Can that be found online anywhere?

Anyway, keep up the good work and great posts. Congrats on the festival!

Ian Worrel said...

Thanks everyone.

Moro - the film is in my public folder if you want to burn a copy.

Brian B - Icarus was my second year film and I didn't make a film my third year. Second Wind is my fourth year film.

So what's this workshop I hear about? Instructing students in the earlier years to be LAME?

BAM!

Still can't wait to see it dude.

Aleta said...

jesus! you´re grat!

Leo Matsuda said...

You kick ass, Ian!

IZA said...

Holy CRAP! I heard your film is amazing from some friends who got to make it out to the open show! I must see it, cause these images are Great!! (As was your last film!)

Antony Peyton said...

I came across "Icarus and the Tree Herder" by chance on YouTube. I'd actually been looking at Japanese, Russian and Hungarian animations. It is an amazing piece of work coupled with brilliant music. Look forward to more!

I know the story of Icarus and all that, but is your animation an interpretation of that legend or is there another meaning? (Or do I simply interpret it as I see fit?)

Ian Worrel said...

Thanks Antony. Icarus & the Tree Herder had a little of the original myth in it. The two characters, Icarus and the minotaur, are the only ties. When I began development I had the labyrinth and Daedalus, but then my imagination took over and the story started to evolve on its own. It doesn't have any meaning other than what you see on the surface.

Antony Peyton said...

Thanks Ian for the explanation. I had just wondered. Cheers and good luck.

Andres said...

Wow! These images are beatiful; I cant wait to see the film

Chris Palmer said...

I saw your film in my class the other day as an example of awesomeness.. I'm really looking forward to seeing it again. its really symbolic.

Eta said...

Wow, you're a real good illustrator, I'm very curious about your animation!
I study media design in Milan, at NABA, so I study animation too, but I'm at the first year. My first real animation film is in this days...
I'll come back here! Sure!

Cheers!


P.S. I'm sorry for my wrost English...

Jackson said...

Lovely work here! I really like the simplicity of the landscape sketches. They have a very Thiebaud feel to them.

Vitor Lopes said...

I love your film!

tomm said...

uniblogger said...

Hey! I watched Second Wind over and over again and I still can't get enough of it. You really do have a beautiful mind! And 10+ for the technical details!! And for the choice of music.
