There have been a few movies here and there that I've been pretty excited about recently, but this is the first movie trailer in a while that has got me all kinds of excited. Excited enough that I feel compelled to share with as many people as possible. This is the new trailer for a movie called "9." The film's producers include Tim Burton, and Timur Bekmambetov whom I adore for his visual styling in "Night Watch," "Day Watch," and despite the story "Wanted." The actors in the film are also nothing short of brilliant. Elijah Wood, John C. Reilly, and Jennifer Connelly. The film also features, one of the most under appreciated actors of our generation, Crispin Glover, whom you might remember as George McFly from the "Back to the Future" series. The song in the trailer also happens to be "Welcome Home" by Coheed and Cambria, one of my favorite songs, by one of my favorite bands. Enjoy.

Show & Tell: Art Final

Well, after almost 14 hours of work, I finally finished my design final. I haven't decided if the final product reflects the number of photoshop hours. Either way, the assignment was to create a series of images that covers an amount of time all within the same kind of universe. For examples we could look to trailers or storyboard animatics and what not. We could only have six images however. I decided to do the life of a circle.

Here's the story:
1. Title Card
2. The college years - Rolling 101
3. Gets a job as the "O" in the Discover Card logo
4. Credit market crashes
5. He's lost his job being that he worked for a credit company
6. His death

Grammy's Get Goliath

The Mars Volta, my favorite living rock and roll group, has been nomated for a Grammy Award in the Best Hard Rock Performance category for the song "Wax Simulacra" (See below video) off their album The Bedlam in Goliath. So yeah, I actually care about the Grammy's again. Normally I look at the Grammy's as awarding the people that sold the most records, rather than the people that played the best music. Alas, there is hope for the world. That is all. Enjoy!
