Dorsal Striatum

Back in the dome today. Checking 3 different camera passes with varying degrees of movement. I’m still not really getting the right kind of disorientation I’m looking for.

Lost and Floating Free

Last night was one of those painful sleepless nights… brain firing on overdrive… folder structures and scripted camera rigs under mental construction.

Capturing Moments

Footsteps in the sand… They’re a metaphor, a cliché if you will. An ephemeral moment captured and remembered. A mark to show that it happened. It was real. I’m not just imagining these things. They are happening. I have pictures. I covered them in a thick layer of protective film, sandwiched between the soft pages […]
