YouthPool: Charlotte NC

Now that we have all of this film clogging up the hard drive, and knowing that we’ll probably not get into the green screen stage for a few weeks it’s safe to say that it might be a soft while before we get viewable content together.  I’m  very happy with what we have filmed  and I’m feeling very confident about this project. I haven’t fully admitted to myself how long producing a special for Public Access programing has been a dream of mine until this afternoon while I was looking through our footage. I know there is a lot of work ahead, and I believe that for me personally this project will be deeply rewarding.  I really have been so blessed to have the people in my life that are so talented and gifted in so many way, willing to help me bring this  film together.  Ama has been awesome acting as the Curse, and carting me around town dressed as the Feral.  She also patiently edits all of my videos with me.  As we’ve  started putting vlogs together this past year I’ve learned to trust her editing skills. I couldn’t be luckier.  I’m also lucky enough that Eric has agreed to score this production. He has already created a massive intro track for the show, and there’s going to be so much more work that I’ll be asking him to do.  That’s about like asking Leprechaun for his pocket watch, wallet and chain too.  Eric lives hours away and is busy creating his own comics and music. As well a dear friend to our family, David has agreed to help us produce our SPFX content in after effects. David lives on the other coast, his experience in the coast guard and his passion for photography  have also sent him down the path of video editing. Without David we gotta figure something else out.  I feel so much gratitude for my friends and their abilities.  Without a doubt our finished film is going to be something really special, I’m already beginning to feel it.  Thank you guys, I think this is the coolest thing, I cannot wait to share it.

Summer Time

Prosperous Summer Solstice everyone! I’m so happy to share that we’ve begun filming for the YouthPool public access program. And I’m even happier to say that I’m very happy with what we’ve got filmed so far. We plan to continue filming this week coming. It may be a few more weeks, or a month before we get the first webisode uploaded however I’m going to try to push Ama to put together a quick teaser before we leave for family vacation.  I hope you enjoy this  glimpse of the Feral in full regalia hanging out in the Hearth studio H.Q. of team Youth Pool.  Ttys

I’ve been talking about reality maps a lot as of late. As a magical concept they’re used to diagram and explain where realms and thought forms exist.  This form of map making is really good for expressing things without set variables, creating a perspective that a simple time line or geographical location might not. The idea is to map out the areas that connect universes realms and all other constructs in a way that shows a relativity to a reader.  Reality maps are also a great way to convey tons of information in a very concise way, communicating directly to the subconscious mind.  I recently made a rudimentary reality map of the Capricorn Comix universe and thought it would be a good idea to share it here. This map will hopefully clarify a lot loose ends as I keep building and expanding the narrative of capricorn comix.  I also wanted to throw down a quick list of the Capricorn Comix goals for 2014-2015. Complete The KnightHarsher Annual, next issue of YP: Summer Slammer/Knight Harsher#9 and Retro Force #11 before the end of the year as well as move into the trading card zone.  Hopefully start uploading some webisodes of YouthPool, made for TV before fall.   TTYL
