Vanessa was sending an email and something went wrong and she sent another saying she was just pressing buttons. That reminded me of this upcoming episode of Lammy when she did the same thing that Vanessa did.
The previous movie clip looks simple, but it is very complex, really. Every item in the scene is a program that has to be installed: the doll character, her clothes, hair, the seat, piano, stage and even the cameras and lights. After installing the dozen or more programs, they have to be positioned using co-ordinates x,y,z for position and then again for rotation. 0,0,0 is the very center. 400, 0, 723 is where they are and the same for the rotation which means head, each arm, leg must be set with numbers. Then we have to install sound programs and integrate them with the movements. The oddest thing happened to me during a rehearsal before shooting a scene: the lights went out. I was shocked at first. How could a light bulb burn out in a virtual matrix of programs and settings? But the light program crashed and I had to uninstall it and then re-install another light, and then assign it co-ordinates so that it would shine on the subject. But honestly, the hardest part is creating something for the character to do. The script writing! Everything starts with creative writing.
We found this old home movie film taken years ago while we were vacationing on a ship in the Bermuda Triangle. We were playing music on deck when suddenly a body made of water leaped up and began dancing on the surface of the sea.
I was just walking around the neighborhood with my camera taking shots of "anythings" as I call them, whatever catches my eye at the moment. I saw that metal nut and zoomed in on it and snapped. Then when I went home and transferred the photos from the camera to the computer, I noticed that it looked like a nut from a tree at about 11 o'clock beside the metal nut. It was just a coincidental juxtaposition of two different kinds of nuts beside each other. I was going to go back and check if that was a real nut, but I knew I'd be looking for an hour before finding it again.
An image from Nessa's story, but I had problems because of the heat of the day and the program crashed because it uses so much resources. So after it got night, I tried it again, but not with as much detail as I had intended. The story is good to read!
This one was really hard; took several hours to make. First had to get the mirror enlarged and working, and then had to line up the girls' hands, feet and asses to fairly match the exercise machines. But it won't take near as long the next time I make a picture like this because this is a learning experience. That's my purpose for doing it: to learn how to manipulate the computer program and create a matrix of files so that if I decide to try some serious screenplay writing again (I've written nine plays and three novels) then I will be able to create the storyboards.I got the program almost a year ago. Well, anyway, I left the girls' skimpy clothes on this time. .
Does anyone know the origin or archetype for this character? I bought the virtual doll for my matrix because it seems to nudge at my memory, like I have seen the image in fantasy art many times since I was a child, but I just can't place it exactly. I know it has to do with squids or octopus tentacles. I was thinking of using him and calling him Zombini the zombie king in my Lammy fantasy blog. There's just something that fascinates me about him: that creepy feeling you get when you see spiders and roaches.
I haven't looked in a newspaper in about ten years since I got the Internet. But I was just sitting here on Sunday morning thinking of that comic page I used to love to read. This is sort of how I remember they looked like. .
Mrs. Weirsdo checks out a hunting blind she found in her great big back yard. She was perturbed at first, but they told her it was just part of the Ersatz University Biology class Nature Observation so they could watch the animals without disturbing them.
