Well… it’s official.  I came to a decision on my crazy idea… so I’ve gone and registered a team for this year’s 48 Hour Film Project in Richmond… and we’ll be producing an animation.  I’m trying to assemble the team now.  We’ve got a strong core, but with how much work is going to be [...]

A crazy idea…

Friday, May 23rd, 2008

So the 48-hour Film Project is coming to Richmond this summer. In fact, registration starts next week on the 27th of May and the actual project happens in July (18th-20th). I’m seriously contemplating doing this. For those of you who don’t know (and don’t feel like clicking on the link), the 48-hour Film Project is [...]

NAB 2008 Article on Blender Nation

Thursday, May 1st, 2008

An article I wrote on my experiences at this year’s NAB Show in Las Vegas has been posted at Blender Nation. Go have a gander at all the cool stuff I got to see there (forgiving some of the blurry camera phone photos)! Of course, the funny thing is that because I tried to keep [...]

Greetings from NAB 2008

Tuesday, April 15th, 2008

Just dropping a quick note to let folks know that I’m currently at the NAB Show in Las Vegas. I’m a dolt and forgot my camera at home, so you’ll just have to deal with the tantalizing text that I write about all of the awesome things that I see (and perhaps a few shoddy [...]

A Veritable Onslaught of Nerdery!

Friday, February 15th, 2008

Alright, this is an accumulation of a few of the awesome things I’ve stumbled on or been directed to across the interwebbernet… and because I’m finding this stuff out via Slashdot, BoingBoing, Digg, or Hand Turkey’s resident Belligerent Internet Nomad, Warren, it’s all nerd/geek-related stuff. We’ll start this with a YouTube video featuring musical tesla [...]

Blender.org Gallery Updated (at long last!)

Friday, September 21st, 2007

After four months without updates, I’ve finally gotten around to updating the gallery on blender.org. I couldn’t have done it alone. I got a huge amount of help from blender user and developer, ZanQdo. We went through the submissions and ultimately selecting a total of 74 images to be added to the gallery. Because of [...]

Ahhh… Home

Monday, August 13th, 2007

So now I’m back in Richmond from a week of travel and adventure. SIGGRAPH was phenomenal and I had an excellent time. Once I get situated and properly re-acquainted with my bed, I’ll be sure to make a nice in-depth post about all that went on. Great stuff, really.

Getting Dragged into Social Networks

Sunday, July 15th, 2007

…kicking and screaming, well sort of. A few months back, Hand Turkey gained a presence on MySpace. We were fighting a losing battle against social networks and we ultimately caved to the “go where the people are” rule. Each studio member got an account and the studio itself got a page. At this point, I [...]

Interesting Links…

Sunday, July 8th, 2007

I’ve had a couple tabs open in Firefox for a while now and it’s time for me to clear them out by posting them here and sharing them with you all. Human Pixel Perform Huge Real-Time Animation – That’s right, this Samsung-sponsored dance troupe of [some large number of] people actually perform like a live [...]

Spontaneous Trip…

Thursday, June 21st, 2007

So yesterday I went to see Paprika, an animated film by Satoshi Kon. If you ever saw the series Paranoia Agent (it ran on Adult Swim a while back), then you’re familiar with this guy’s work. He likes to play with his audience’s brain. This movie is no different: intelligent, well-written, and visually stunning. It’s [...]
