July 5th, 2012 – Rough Cut

So I got to see the rough cut of FANTOMES for the first time today. Weird. Just cannot get used to seeing myself on camera.

So the one liner description of the film goes something like this: “Fantomes — about a black ops agent dealing with her unexpected pregnancy while on a routine job with her partner. Directed by Nik Green of Global Authority Media. Produced by Nik Green (Global Authority) & Yvette Lu of Rainfield Films. DOP Shane Smith of Red Salt Productions.”

And back to real life, where though I am not editing the film, I am still editing video for my project at the LABlab. EDIT ALL THE THINGS!!!

And now, a screenshot of my character, Amber, looking pensive:

March 23, 24, 25, 2012 – Not Much To Say

Just a few photos and one very short video (my iPhone camera was accidentally in video mode instead of photo, ha!)

March 23: There’s this picnic-appropriate patch of grass at SFU by the Robert C Brown Hall that I walk past almost every day. Last week was all sorts of weird adolescent can’t-decide-if-i-want-to-be-winter-or-spring growing pains, with all sorts of snow and rain and such, but then there was this one sunny warm day on March 23th, and suddenly, said patch of grass was covered in daisies.

March 24: Went to go see The Hunger Games at The Dolphin Cinemas with some friends on Saturday night. Yes. Saturday night and tickets were only $6.95 including tax. So to reward them for their reasonable prices, I bought the biggest popcorn I could (the profit margin on popcorn is very good). First time ever going to The Dolphin. I like it. It’s one of those older style theatres with only 2 screens, and a shallow incline (not stadium seating) with the screen up high. Like being a kid again, getting all excited for a movie, going out with a bunch of girlfriends, getting popcorn (I’m so stingy…when I pay $15 for a ticket at Cineplex/Silvercity there’s no way I’m overpaying for junk food). Note to go back on a Tuesday for “Toonie Tuesday” when movies are $2! I really hope they can make enough money to stay in business for a good long while.

March 25: Trekked out to Cap’s Westwood Cycle in PoCo to pick up a pair of Skins brand spandex shorts. Loved their sign. Brilliant sunny day for it, seeing as March 26th turned rainy again.

Then drove out to Surrey to watch Steve’s football practice. Here’s a 3 second accidental video of an uber-patriotic car driving over the Port Mann Bridge:

I have this class on Tuesdays that goes from 11:30-2:30. About an hour into class I start fading fast, and my concentration diminishes. And I start drawing.

And the answer to “Can you pass the salt?” is funnily neither “yes” nor “no”. It’s physically picking up the salt shaker and handing it to someone. :P

Speaking of hunger, look what I got in the mail today from Cafepress:

March 20, 2012 | The Hunger Games Panem District 5 Identification Card

Fun. I’m now on the grid, very much so. That’s more information than my doctor has. That photo of me on the card is from 2008. I haven’t really aged much in 4 years, have I?! Going to see the movie Saturday night with a bunch of friends. Not sure why people are comparing The Hunger Games to Twilight…well, yeah I can see why but DUDES hello Katniss Everdeen is a kick ass awesome survivor whereas that Bella Twilighty poor exemplar of a human female needs to stop swooning and blinking and generally being a doormat damsel in distress.

Ahem. Anyway.

It snowed today. Then it melted. Heather finally hit full bloom today @ SFU.

March 18, 2012 – Big Sky over Vancouver

March 18, 2012 | Big Sky over Vancouver

It appears that something tumultuous is going on there, weather-wise, in Vancouver.

Panorama taken with Photosynth for iPhone, edited in Photoshop on my Mac. Photosynth seems to only save low quality versions of files, which is disappointing. I think it would be fun to take a bunch of panorama photos from your neighbours’ balconies, and giclee them to canvas for the living room walls that aren’t windows. Voila! Instant awesome.

*EDIT*: March 19th – I think I may have found something better. Autostitch app for iPhone gives better resolution (check it out if you’ve got one of those godly big monitors like mine…much better than the dinky Photosynth business above!). Here is another version where 3 pictures were taken using the normal iPhone camera (could’ve gotten wider angle but wasn’t thinking of it at the time) then stitched using Autostitch, then edited on-phone for colour using the sunset setting and thick black border using the Camera+ app. You can use the Autostitch app to take pictures too but I didn’t have that app last night, now did I?

I like it. :)

My apartment gets awesome sunsets…many more big sky photos to come this year!

March 16, 2012 – Pi Day 2012

Pi Day March 14, 2012 | French Silk Pie

Pi Day March 16, 2012 | French Silk Pie

Pi Day festivities got cancelled this year, and were made up for only half-heartedly on Friday March 16th. I made the french silk pie on graham cracker crust that was a hit at last year’s party. I didn’t add enough chocolate this year, and had nobody to share it with, so it was highly unsatisfactory on all fronts. The only good thing to come out of it was a nicely textured photo.

There’s still some left if you want some.
