Day 300 / Musical Mobius Strip

December 31st, 2010,   Tonight is new years eve and sadly Junie is sick.  We had plans to go out on the town but we felt bad leaving this snuffly sick baby girl with grandma for the night.   As for resolutions, I’m still looking to make it out of the one that you’re reading […]

Day 301 / Lucky

January 1st 2011   This post was almost a fail.  Luckily a last minute adjustment saved the day.   Today marked the end of my friends own 365 day project.  My friend Dean has refrained from having a single drop of alcohol in the past year and tonight was the night he would have his […]

Day 302 / Grainslide

January 2nd, 2011     My last day before the end of my christmas break.  It was nice to be home but tomorrow it’s back to work and January is looking like it’s going to be a crazy month.     This evening I decided to continue working with the samples from the latest MCRP. […]

Day 303 / Monome Light-Typing

January 3rd, 2011   Today I was back to work.  It was a mellow day to begin the work week.  It turns out I’ll be working all weekend on The Muppets so I have a full week ahead of me.   On the drive home my thoughts landed on an old post that I did […]

Day 304 / Beta Testin’

January 4th, 2011   I took the day off of work today because I knew that I was going to work the weekend.  It was quite a day.  I decided to treat June to a day on the trains which turned out to be much longer than we expected because I got on the wrong […]

Day 305 / Stop-Motion Light

January 5th, 2011   I had a pretty busy day at the office.  Work kept me a bit late but it wasn’t too bad.  I left for home around 8pm.  As I drove home, I decided to myself that I was going to do a macro-shoot of a bit of bark that I pulled off […]

Day 306 / First Attempt With A Dip-Pen

January 6th, 2011   I stayed late at the office again, this time later then the night before.  I was rushing to get everything done because I’m working on set tomorrow and I have to wake up early.  Jenny invited her sister Stacy and her husband Guillaume over for conversation and drinks.  They’ve been in […]

Day 307 / Getting To Know The Dip-Pen

Day 308 / Clustering

January 8th, 2011   Woke up early to make it to set on time.  Today was the first of three major press days on the movie.  As an EPK guy, I normally don’t have to deal with the press side of things but on this film it’s a little different.  Being that it’s the muppets […]

Day 309 / Incidental Beat

January 9th, 2011 Up early again to make it to set on time.  We’re filming at Universal Studios now and it’s funny to see the tours pass by.  People riding the tram snap pictures of me as if I might be somebody of importance.  It was another crazy day of running around on set. At the end […]

Day 310 / Another Cube Cluster

January 10th, 2011   I woke up this morning feeling kind of grimy from sleeping on a sofa at work.  I was woken up by my co-workers arriving.  I got up and cleaned myself up a little, picked up some coffee and headed off to set.   Today was another crazy press day.  The last […]

Day 311 / Ink + Watercolor

January 11th, 2011   I can’t believe I did this one with the time and energy that I had left.   I had a late call time to set today, about 11:30, which means that my camera crew and I weren’t going to wrap until very late at night.  It was about 11pm when we called […]

Day 312 / Black Ink Swan

January 12th, 2011   I got to sleep in today!  I didn’t have to go to work and Jenny let me have as much time as I wanted to get up. That was nice.  I got up at 10 o’clock and posted my previous days creative thing.  We took it easy for most of the […]

Day 313 / Recapturing Computer Animation Pt. 1

January 13th, 2011   Such a nice day.  We took June to Disneyland again (we have season passes).  She got to meet Woody and Jesse from Toy Story fame.  It was the first time we’ve ever waited in line to meet a character.  It was pretty hilarious to watch June interact with them, especially Jesse.  […]

Day 314 / Recapturing Computer Animation Pt. 2

January 14th, 2011   It was a pretty hectic day on the set today.  I did three major interviews.  We were shooting in a strip mall in Pacoima and it was windy, noisy and full sun, not the greatest factors for shooting interviews.  We had to move our setup into an old insurance office that […]

Day 315 / Arrangement Mode

January 15th, 2011   Tonight I decided to work on my track for MCRP V9.  The due date for final tracks is the 21st and I don’t want to let my progress fall by the wayside.  I have to admit this evening I was having trouble getting things working.   I’m jumping from the place […]

Day 316 / Mash

January 16th, 2011 I got to stay home today!  It was nice.  I picked up Jenny from the airport in the morning and we had a wonderful day playing and napping together. I decided to invite some friends over for an evening in the studio.  It’s been awhile since the last time.  Tonight my focus was to […]

Day 317 / Muppet-Cam

January 17th, 2011   Today was an all-nighter for me on the set of The Muppets.  We’re filming in Hollywood and It’s a pretty awesome production to see to say the least.   Anyways, I had to figure out my creative thing while being on set.  It turned out being rather simple and something that […]

Day 318 / Sunrise Over Hollywood

January 18th, 2011 I got home from work around 6am and fell asleep until 2pm.  I spent whatever time I had before I had to go off to set again with Jenny and June.  It was another overnight shoot on a blocked off street in Hollywood.  It was a busy night for me too.  I kept […]

Day 319 / Dog-Eared and Dog-Tired

January 19th, 2011   I got home around 8am and, at first, thought I wouldn’t go to sleep.  I hate losing my daytime hours to sleep but eventually I couldn’t keep my eyes open and I had to lay down.  I slept until about 3pm.   I was dazed and grumpy for most of the […]

Day 320 / Wow & Flutter

January 20th, 2011   Today I was back at the office for the first time in a while.  It was nice to go home at a normal time.   As I drove home, I thought about my song for the latest Monome Community Remix Project.  The  deadline is tomorrow and I need to finish it […]

Day 321 / Papercut

January 21st, 2011   Well today I missed the deadline for the Monome Community Remix Project V9.  This evening, just before leaving to go home, I received a phone call that left me with a series of notes on a cut that I worked on.  I had to stay late to get them done because […]

Day 322 / Arrangement Woes

January 22nd, 2011   I had an extremely long day on the set today.  At wrap we got a new schedule for the film and I had to stay back with the unit publicist and reschedule all of our future dates on the film.  Unfortunately, it turned out that the sunday I thought I was […]

Day 323 / Monolero

January 23rd, 2011 Sunday on set was pretty slow.  Almost arduously slow but at least it wasn’t a late night. I went home determined to finish my track. Tonight was better than last night.  It was good to step away and come back to the song.  I didn’t hate it as much this time.  The tempo is very […]

Day 324 / A Director’s Chair For A Muppet

January 24th, 2011   Today I knew exactly what my creative project was going to be from the beginning.  I planned on it last night.   Today, on set, was the first of the muppet interviews.  I’ve been capturing plenty of human interviews but we still have yet to begin the long list of muppets […]
