So while I was preparing to move on (getting everything and anything not final quicktime of thesis out of sight and in storage) and unpack from all things SVA (as I just moved back to my hometown) I found some dated but notable thesis stuff...and even though they were all thrown in the chopping block at some point and one upped by other great contenders, I thought it'd be nice to share of what could've been had it not been for those many other great background choices.
note: image then below comments
HAND-MADE DRAWINGS---- distant lane of memory
COFFEE AND MORNINGS- watercolors (I painted this in the evening too)
COLOR WITH SCRIBBLES- crayola all the way
(I LOVE this by the way. This is essentially me right here..the other visually...plus the best part of this piece is that I started this out as a spontaneous scratch pad until I decided to have fun halfway and create this.)
POLLEN ATTACK (1 and 2)- watercolor markers, ink.
(Of course this would've been the worst thing in the world for me..as the pollen hates me and I hate pollen...literally a living hell to live in these two drawings)
** All these drawings above didn't make it to the final product because my focus tended to stroll off to the real customized portions of the film and I basically just let my natural instincts take auto pilot halfway through because I wanted my film to turn out the way it wanted to turn out and let out any creative impulses that wanted out in my brain and on to visibility.
I really just had way too much fun in the gathering process (pre-production related) and had an excess of both drawings and real elements for background materials.
REAL ELEMENTS---- recent lane of memory
(which I chewed A LOT of during crunch time)
***reason for the chopping block --somehow something didn't quite work out during the zoom out process so I had to use pink parchment instead (in the beginning with the green clovers)
SPITBALL MACHINE- red bendy straws, crumpled newsprint paper and those wrapping papers you get with new shoes inside the shoeboxes
***reason for the chopping block --never was a contender...I created this because I was under a lot of thesis stress and who doesn't want a spitball machine to kill time with..
ASSORTMENT OF TINY JEWELS and MISC- pale green bg, different sets of :3 starlets, 6 ringlets, 2 buttons, 1 bead
***reason for the chopping block --too much was going on for a bg scene I had in mind.
MINTY BG- started out with the classic green and red ones (with and without wrappers)
***reason for the chopping block --it was this or take out the pinwheel scene.
GUMMY WORMS- scanned whole and in half
***reason for the chopping block --none...it was hidden in one of my folders.. if it wasn't I would've used it for a transition scene
THE POST PART -----
Now to get professional and somehow squeeze in with the real world crowd since thesis memory lane and college cushion of student status is almost over (almost because...I'm not fully unpacked from the college dorm life yet and I have piles and piles of boxes to go through so I think I'm going to say that it's a liable reason right now)
For some reason I don't have that same drive I had the past few summers with finding work. I just feel like waking up late...eating..and then facebooking all day until I fall asleep --- me being real. Usually I'm very diligent and eager to scavenge for work and engage myself in something, even more so in the summer. I blame the economy and the year long thesis process that just made my brain flip the off switch for a while along with my determination for anything. Hopefully by next week I'll be myself again.
Oh and shorter posts...keeping it sweeter.
