The Heavens - green scene sample

here's a sample of what i've been editing. it's a scene from the second episode when captain andrew and captain ida first meet. i haven't yet started with the effects much. it's going to be practically impossible to get rid of that microphone when johnny makes fun of the stellar coordinator. below: captain andrew's alpha probe.

Jim Henson

that fraggle rock episode i saw at steve's place, it made me wonder how much of my childhood entertainment was made by mind-altered beatnik hippies. this short from '65 is an art film made by Henson between commercial projects and muppet stuff. are the children today being told to listen to stalactites ? that's what happened in the fraggle rock show

The Heavens - voice-over recordings

these photos were taken one week ago today. johnny left milwaukee this morning. everything 'heavens' is in the can, so now i have to just spend gobs of time on this computer making a little universe. we recorded the voices in steve's bedroom, with the mic in his sort of closet space. then we shot some fireworks at nancy's house.

it looks like that ghost is putting a pumpkin on my head

The Heavens - last studio shoot photos

These were taken last monday during our last shoot in the green screen studio. I've been editing the footage a lot lately, it looks like we've got 8 episodes that are 5 minutes long. still don't know when episode 1 will be up since I'm still figuring out this after effects program. who was I talking to about when a project is started you have all this freedom and then there's this moment where you enter the phase of the project just coming together and it being just it and not other things
