I don't bother coming up with my own content. I just re-publish Chance Shirley's Tweets:
It's amazing that you can make a film with zombie pirates and killer mermaids boring, but that is not the film's greatest sin.Via Alex Epstein, there's this new program called "Logline" which is screenwriting software and looks kinda interesting. It's a web-only program. The philosophy of the thing is that it lets you look at your structure at the same time as your screenplay. And of course ideologically I'm totally with that idea.
Have I been pushing the Pandora Machine Wiki? If you're really bored, or stoned, the Wiki is the place to go.
Oh, and Video Copilot has a new script for working for sequences in AfterEffects. If you work in AfterEffects you will want this script. It's called the "trim compose" script and it divides your layers into pre-compositions. For us we'd probably have to use a script to divide up an image sequence into "shots" first. Am I making any sense? Not if you don't use our system for CG. But I do make sense. Somewhere. Anyway, Video Copilot.
Lookit me. Almost six minutes to render a frame. And that's going to get worse before it gets better.
