So I am nicknaming all our way old stuff that I am just getting to edit as “Giant House Vintage.” I have mixed feelings about taking 8 or 9 or 20 years to edit stuff but it is sure fun to relive some of these old memories. Anyway here is a brief rundown for anyone who may care even a little bit.
Gymnics: The 2008 Homeshow prep documentary simply called Gymnics Show 2008 is very very close to being done. Just recorded and cut narration in it yesterday. After that I have a interview bonus video to do. Both I am hoping to be done with it in the coming month. Afterwards I am looking at editing the 2009 Show which would be my last.
Star Voyage: It is so cheesy but its seriously my favorite thing we have done. Not too much to say other than I have started cutting episode 7. I would love to have 7 and 8 all cut together this year. I also have hopes that by the time they are edited we will have a solution for all the effects. So far I have a pretty good idea of how it will be accomplished and have been working the past few months in that direction.
Conspiracy is also a lot more complete than I remembered, so when I am doing effects for 7 and 8 I will probably work on that as well.
Polly: Polly is all shot now. That feels so good. And it is probably around 65%-70% edited. After Gymnics I will turn on that.
Interrogators: Really no excuse, I have been sitting on it too long. its 99% done so I will turn it out here this spring.
I have been slowly coming to a realization over the past few months or so. I have been very mixed up as to what this website is all about, trying to make it into two, three or even four things all at once, taping them together and trying to force them to be one cohesive vision. But that isn’t going to work. So this year, I am refocusing myself on our website, and the content I create here. This site is about creating things, creating art, creating fun, just plain creating.
No forced goals, no forced preconceived notions or expectations on myself other than just to have fun creating and trying new things. Isn’t that what art and creativity should be about? Trying something new, daring to fail, and even daring to succeed. My wife teaches me so many profound things when it comes to creativity and expression, and I am inspired by her and in this new year I am go to refocus this site on the things that James and I and other friends have enjoyed creating over the years… fun.
I already have a new website layout that I love and that we launched over a year ago, but now its time to update the focus. And our blogs layout could use a tweak or two also.
Creating art, stories, fun is what I love to do. I get to use those passions in my everyday life for the most part, but there are parts of me that I don’t get to explore in that venue, so that is why I have gianthouse.com. Here is to a more creative and creatively freeing 2017.
