The Droplift Project is back! Conspicuously absent from the internet for some time, it has been reinstated in its new home among the Bright Red Rocket family of questionable websites. Restored and copied without much in the way of editing, it retains its early 2000s web aesthetics. No blink tags, but plenty of tables. In […]
Good luck finding a copy of my 2009 book “Get Animated.” Oh, wait, here they are. Though not as scarce as hen’s teeth it’s getting that way. The book included a DVD with information and tutorials on it. Now that no one wants to admit they own a DVD player, it’s unfashionable to suggest anyone […]
While preparing the 360 version, this new restored HD version of the original came about.
A new version of “Cat’s Head Theatre,” a.k.a. Cat Head Theatre 2, a.k.a. the Japanese Movie One, is now up on YouTube. Yes, the HD version will not be long behind, but for now why not enjoy a brand spanking new 360 version? Re-imagined and re-engineered for this whole 360 degree video craze that’s sweeping […]
Someone has made the horrible mistake of letting me talk for hours. Here’s the result, Austin Rich’s brand new radio/podcast, WTBC’s Radio in Beautiful Anywhere, Anywhen. Austin does his level best to make sense out of me babbling about a number of topics, including Cat-Head Theater 360 , bad timing & media shifts, Vicki Bennett’s Gone Gone Beyond film […]
At long last, the Render Farm at the Naked Rabbit Mystery Studios has burned itself out bringing you the unavoidable spectacle of Cat Head Theatre – in 360 degree video! You’ve no doubt heard of this newfangled amusement they call the “Three Hundred Sixty Degree Video.” It’s all the rage amongst the intelligentsia as well […]
“Anna” is finished! After a rather lengthy and totally unnecessary beginning, the final 2K scans were re-edited, color corrected, and married to a new 5.1 soundtrack. Now there is a viable DCP ready for projection and ultimate viewing. It’s as good as it’s going to get. Most importantly, this means it is actually finished for […]
DISCLAIMER: This is a continuing series detailing the painful story of a DIY render farm build. It is terribly technical and somewhat frustrating. Those who are unprepared for such “entertainment” are advised to ignore these posts. This may be the Last Report on the Render Farm. After this there’s probably not much to say about […]
The last of the imagined Lobby Cards for “Anna” while I finish up a 2K DCP of the film. The 5.1 mix has been ready for a year now, it’s time to get this thing together and show it shown somewhere.
I’m gearing up for working on the new transfer of “Anna” and getting the film to look good in 2K. So here are more fake Lobby Cards for the film – as if it were showing in the 1970s.
