aging myself

I'm acting in my friend's thesis film this weekend, playing a police lieutenant recovering from alcholism and full of racist bitterness about Viet Nam. And the year is 1986. And he's in his late 40's. Thus my first experiment with liquid latex. Not bad for a first try, I think. It could pass on SD video, but I need to get better at this for it to be semi-believable on 16mm. The movie is called "Danger Beach" and it's about beach cops trying to take down a drug ring, with some Texas oil men thrown in for good measure. I get to say some very racist things. I also get shot up real bad. Should be a lot of fun. It's a comedy, by the way.

Motion Graphics Reel, take 1

Tonight I hastily put together a motion graphics reel for a promising job lead. I'm not very satisfied with it, but at least I have something to improve upon instead of no reel at all. To be continued.

Music by Nick Pierotti, Lyrics by Eliot Dewberry and Nick Pierotti

Having just discovered, I now have a way to post individual songs on this blog as an embedded player. So expect plenty more music-related postings to come.

This track is called "I Just Might". I recorded it this past weekend with my Grover bandmates Nick Pierotti and Nick Teramura. The funny story behind this song is that we wrote it about four years ago while slightly inebriated, and the lyrics were lost until a few weeks ago, when I found them in one of the many journal/sketchbook things I've acquired over the years.

We recorded using Garageband '08 and a PreSonus Firepod interface.
