A little behind the scenes look of the early stages of Green Lantern the Animated Series.

My eternal gratitude to everyone who helped prove the doubters wrong.

Tuesday Tip - Beat Boards / StoryboardsIt can be a daunting task to just “start storyboarding”. Because there’s so many things to think about when storyboarding, we all need a roadmap to know where we are going. Beat boards are not even the first step to creating a story, but it’s often the clearest way to pitch an early concept to someone. It’s also very useful to plan out the larger beats of a large physical sequence (action, chase, etc.). This way, you don’t have to go on a limb for a week or two and have to redo it all if it doesn’t work. They’re sort of like your Key Poses in animation, but put on a story scale. Does that make sense? Message me if you have any questions or suggestions about future posts.Norm

Are you a sculptor or 2d artist?  Are you in a tremendous amount of pain in the shoulders, arms or wrists? 

One of the most important things that no one will ever teach you in school is that art is a physical activity.  It’s hard on your body.  Just like any physical activity, especially one that may last for eight hours, you need to do stretches prior to starting.

Pain can include shooting pains down your arms, tension headaches, numb fingers, cramping of your pecs around your sternum, ect.

This video is a great starter for opening up your shoulders, which will go a long way to helping you stay pain-free.

Most artists don’t make enough to afford health care in the states, so preventative care is a MUST.  Do some stretches before you end up doing permanent damage like I have. 

Other stretches to check out are ones for carpal tunnel and tendonitis.  They are two different conditions that affect the hands and wrists.  If you can, go get a massage and ask them to focus on your shoulders and hands.  Deep tissue/sports massage seems to work the best, although other forms of massage may be just as helpful.

‘Hitchcock: Shadow of a Genius’ aka ‘Dial H for Hitchcock’ (1999) is a fascinating look at the cinematic genius of Alfred Hitchcock. Briefly covering much of his early British works, the film primarily focuses on his American classics, such as ‘Shadow of a Doubt,’ ‘Notorious,’ ‘Rear Window,’ ‘Vertigo,’ ‘Psycho’ and ‘The Birds.’ The documentary also covers his television years and neatly examines the Hitchcock signature touches, from his inevitable brief cameos to his famous “MacGuffin.” Kevin Spacey narrates, and there are interviews with his delightful daughter Pat as well as such film directors as Brian De Palma, Jonathan Demme, Curtis Hanson, Robert Altman, Ronald Neame and Peter Bogdanovich, along with cast and crew members Tippi Hedren, Joseph Stefano, Norman Lloyd, Robert F. Boyle, Teresa Wright and Janet Leigh.
This documentary has not been officially released on DVD.

Hi, folks. Here’s a five-page preview of a mini I hope to have on sale next week. (People ask me for advice on a weekly basis, anyway; might as well consolidate it all into one handy package.) Stuff I plan to include:

  • What to ask the printer
  • How to calculate your goal properly
  • How to price and sell your books
  • Good backer bonus ideas
  • Your Frenemy The Post Office
  • Self-promotion

And so on and soforth.

It’ll probably run 30 or so pages- it’s roughed out that far, anyway- And I’ll be selling it for $5.00.

I’ll drop you folks an update when it’s finished.
