Quick post! Here is a video from our trip to Montreal- W made it. I will try and have photos up after finals but they will probably be on FB and just a few here- FB is just so dam easy. Also- annual postcards should get to my doorstep this week and will soon appear in a mail box near you. I hope you like them. We had a lot of fun making them- and surprisingly minimal stress. I don’t think W understood my vision until after everything was edited together- its crazy to see where a photo starts and then where it ends up- at least for me- it involves a lot of photo editing. Partially to get the color, over exaggeration, and depth I want–and partially the special effects- you will see what I mean. I think that is a post in itself- the making of an annual postcard.
Another thing I have been thinking about is making a ‘kids’ book- in soft quotes because its mainly for adults. And it would be just of Rocky…sleeping. What do you think? It would be short run so I couldn’t sell it for less than $15 a copy (already price checked). But would you buy one? Wesley and I spent most of the train ride arguing over profit sharing percentages- I think the guy across from us was trying not to laugh the whole way- or cry because he probably thought we were vehemently arguing over something…you know…real. Anyway- we were arguing over the last 5% -he wanted 33-35% and I wouldn’t budge above 30% (for his share) and Friday in the answer dawned on me. 30/65 split (my idea and work, his dog) with the last 5% going to a dog charity.
Let me just remind you that this was at least a 6 hour debate over a book that is A) not made B) no one will buy and C) will not have any profits if someone actually did buy it.
This is no longer a quick post. Back to studying. Here is the video:
