Let's get to work ...

I recently came back from a fantastic week at SCAD (Savannah College of Art and Design). Where I had the opportunity to find out what it will take to turn my dreams into a reality. I am impressed, inspired, and actually can't wait to get busy. People say that when you find your passion, you'll know. I didn't believe them until now. After visiting many colleges and hearing about endless careers, one gets rather tired of it all. SCAD did not make me feel that way. I almost didn't want to go home.

I know that in order to make movies, which is my long term dream, there are many short term goals that have to come first. I will talk about those later (so you'll have to come back ... muahaha!). In the meantime, I'm super excited because now I have an end goal, something to reach for. It actually made me feel good about school. Who would have thought!?

The Rig

One can go far with Styrofoam. Yesterday I set up my camera for recording drawing videos. It hangs from two wooden pegs clamped to a desk. The case itself is a blueberry container attached to the pegs by pipe cleaners. Inside, the camera is held steady by box nails and a block of Styrofoam. It works ... although it is probably the corniest setup I've ever seen.

But, I'll let you decide for yourselves (You know you're jealous of this awesome rig :P):

That's all for a while. I am leaving for Georgia to attend a camp at S.C.A.D. (Savannah College of Art and Design ... awesome place.) on Sunday, and, right after that, I will be on a week - long mission trip to San Francisco. Hopefully I'll bring back some interesting stories.
