PREY – First Disk Set Burned and Printed

I purchased an Epson Artisan 810 Printer today the prints right onto DVD and BluRay Printable Disk Media, so I’ve burnt and Printed out the first PREY disk set. I love that feeling of holding the finished product in hand as a tangible box unit and slipping it into the DVD Collection. So rewarding and therapeutic. […]

PREY – DVD / BR Completed

Tonight I finished putting the minor tweaks on the PREY BR / DVD files and it’s now completed! The crazy power outage yesterday completely trumped the PREY interviews we were going to do, but I decided instead of trying to get those on the Disk, we would do them and use them as extra On-Line […]

PREY – Commentary / Menu Status

Today we did the Prey Commentary. We had Cornbread, Mark and Rhoads in the house. Rhoads’ contribution though really small, still had some impact as “Larry the Ice Cream Truck driver” and was quite lively in the commentary. Truth be told, it wasnt so much insightful as it was just throwing around zingers…but it was […]

  So here is the basic layout for the disk menus. Pretty straight forward but I think they will work. The images in the center wont be attached to a specific menu, everything in that cutaway area is a looping animation that cycles through so Corno is on one, another image of Mark with Wrench […]

PREY – DVD Menu Started / ARTEMIS Android App

I purchased a nifty little Android App for the new phone today. Shannie and I replaced our old HTC G1’s with HTC Sensations a couple weeks ago so we now have access to apps that are fast and actually work. lol… I found this Artemis app which is basically a digital viewfinder. Pretty cool. For […]

PREY – Blood Transition

As I merged the PREY scenes together I found that the two underlined music tracks were making the cut pretty ubrupt, so I felt like I needed to do something cool here to bridge the scenes before building the project. I ended up doing this really slick blood transition with some layer trickery. I was able to […]

Paul Wardingham = Bad Freak’n Ass

I happened to run across this guy the other day, pretty awesome stuff. This is just a guy recording out of his home, a ProTools and Logic Rig, some guitars and a Pod X3 Live into an input interface and this stuff is just bad ass. Sonically it’s huge, his technique, phrasing and compositions are so scary. Amazing […]
