Better Late Than Never

By | Film related | No Comments

A couple of inches of snow put a crimp in a lot of plans today.  I just stayed in and fooled around on various projects…one of which is to familiarize myself the workings of my DSLR as a movie camera.  There’s a whole trend for filmmakers to use Digital SLRS to shoot movies these days, but it has it’s own set of challenges.  I also got a mold made of a simple clay face.  Something to practice on while I work on a more elegant example.  The plaster mold came out pretty good.  It set in the right amount of time and the original came away with very little damage to the artwork.  I did an over lay with a template of “ideal”  dimensions and could easily see the shortcomings of my proportions…which somehow weren’t all that obvious in real life.  Perhaps it’s just the angle of view…but the poor little fellow seems to be lacking in places to put his brains.  …Well off to bed for me.  Maybe I’ll get on time tomorrow.
