Halp…! My doodles are taking over!

Halp…! My doodles are taking over!

I love drawing.  Or should I say doodling.  It does seem more and more these days that the only time I do have for art is for sketchy, quick stuff.  I know that I should really spend more time,  but finding the time to devote to such endeavours is becoming hard to find.  Therefore most of the art I produce is quick – with no planning.

Is this a bad thing?… perhaps if I’m not careful, all my art will be a mish mash of doodley scribblings with not much substance to show for my talents.  I worry too that I’m not really progressing further with artist skills. In saying this though,  I had a look at some early stuff from 2009, and there does seem some improvement in my portrait creations.

At any rate, as I said, I really only create art/drawing/doodles because I enjoy it.  I’m not out to win any illustrative prizes or accolades.   So I guess I’ll just keep going the way I’m going – well maybe until I win Lotto and can spend all my day painting and drawing. 😉

Key to the Past

So I have just had a lot of fun with my last unit at Uni.  It was Screen Production 101, and I was lucky enough to work with some great peeps along with learning how to operate in a TV Studio situation.  This included how to create a couple of short films and also do a little hosting number in our small TV Studio – complete with “green screen”.

Here is the first of my little short films we completed… and marks just back in… “high distinctions” for them all !! YAY!  So stoked!

TV Studio bit – Sandyland  – limited to 30 seconds or close to.

Key to the Past. – limited to 3 mins
The Synopsis
Sarah is late for an appointment. Nervous and excited she takes a deep breath, reminding herself that the key to her family history is just within her grasp. Sarah slows her car to a stop, the street is deserted and she is definitely lost. Her eyes search the empty street hoping to recognise a way back to the main road when the glint of something up ahead catches her eye. As she pulls up alongside, she is greeted by an odd little lemonade stand and its only inhabitant, a peculiar little girl. Sarah is soon to discover not only the way back to the highway, but a way back to her family’s past.

The last one was the group film we had to do.  Limit of 1 minute.
