Superman Classic –

This is a pretty cool little short film created by Robb Pratt a veteran Disney Animator and a friend of someone that works here at SOE. Great classic old school animation techniques.

Red State –

Not sure if anyone caught Director Kevin Smith’s speach at Sundance while screening his new movie Red State, but it was interesting to say the least. He basically is trying a new sales model for his film where he doesn’t sell it to the Studios, but instead takes it out on the road and personally screens it on […]

Monday – No SbiG this week

Today I received the Postal Truck Magnet Signs in the mail. They actually tried to drop them off over the weekend but I apparently wasn’t here…which is odd because I was here. But not as odd is it was to show up at the post office knowing the package I was picking up were USPS […]

Some more Props come in –

A few more props came in for the Mail Carrier wardrobe tonight. The sun hat which looks awesome and really ties the whole uniform together…and the official US Mail emblem’d Flask….for those “Drinking on the job” scenes. A particularly nice detail given the subject matter.

Feb-Four-Friday

Uggh…already 4 days into Feb. Time is not standing still for me..lol. Well last night was fun. Blood Mania was hardy Bloody or Mania. I think Cornbread summed it up when he said it was a total miss-use of the title. The weirdest thing however was that the film opened all it’s story elements, then […]

Retro Assault – BullDog III

Design for the BullDog Call III heavy attack Ship. This particular enemy craft fires a wide burst of projectiles from under its side wing connections and in a 180 degree firing arc. I also like how the silhouette image looks reminiscent to the old Space Invader baddies form the classic Arcade game.

Retro Assault – BullDog II – Bomber

Here is the BullDog Class Bomber/Heavy Fighter Enemy Type – This thing drops explosive mines on the playing field that the Player has to avoid as well as being one of the heavier armored class of fighters making them tough to destroy. On the home front, we had Shannie’s cousin Brian come over last night and completely […]
