Amazing New Stuff

Well blogger, it's been a while. All of you are probably thinking, "Steve is so talented and amazing...I'll bet the only reason he hasn't updated his blog is because he's risen to the top tier of society and is far too busy for the likes of us." And by "all of you" I mean "none of you." And by "none of you" I mean "probably nobody will read this."

Banking on that, here are some things I have been doing and some things I am planning to do:

First off, I am moving to Prospect Heights on the 1st. So...that's exciting.

Here is a video Dan, Mike and I made for Landline. DISCLAIMER: Naked ass involved.

Lastly, I recently had to sit in the New Rochelle city court to deal with a traffic ticket. It didn't get resolved. I don't think anyone has a pleasant experience in places like that. There were a lot of babies crying and people yelling in Spanish. Anywho, I've been messing around with flash and thought it might be fun to animate the experience...with minimal moving parts. Here's something I did in 2 minutes:

Click it, he blinks! The character wouldn't necessarily look like that. It's just a quick doodle. Also, I've been doing a lot of freelance stuff...just figured out the whole moving situation. Now you're all up to speed. All of you. Everyone in the world.

Sometimes I Don't Know: Scenes 1-4


A while ago I posted storyboards for my senior thesis film. Here are some of those scenes:

On a side note, I want to take some long exposure shots of my neighborhood. I'm not exactly sure why, other than I dig what this area looks like at night. I took a test photo at around 1am. I wasn't really concerned with the framing, I just wanted to see what it would look like. I will post others as I take them.

Monreal: 320 Kickstarter

My friend Dan Ferrara wrote a short script that we are trying to shoot. We started a kickstarter for the project in hopes of raising money to rent equipment and all of that.

Click the image below to watch our pitch. Feel free to donate ridiculously large sums of money.

We also started a blog for it so that everyone can get updates on the project, see stills, etc. Fun stuff.

Montreal: 320 Blog

Hope you are all doing well. I'm fine...I'm great. Things are great. Yikes.

Max Asleep

My dog Max fell asleep in an awkward position, so I took pictures of him like a creep to post on my creepy blog for creeps. Enjoy.

Someone's asking for a tummy-rub, and his name is this dog. Gosh, I'm lonely.

Ned On Earth

The couple hurried into pose as a local rancher snapped their photo. Ned never wanted to forget this day. That night, Ned and Cheryl became one. The next morning he was hit by a bus.

Above: Ned and his wife on their honeymoon. Proving true love knows no bounds.

Cards I Have Drawn

I always draw cards for birthdays and holidays for some reason:

My parents won't accept a store bought card because they like the hand drawn ones. Jokes on them because the drawn ones are becoming more and more terrible. What do you think now, Mom? What do you think of your wonderful son now?

Anyway, I found a handful of them and decided to post them. I don't know the years of these, but none of them are that recent. I guess the simpler/ better drawn ones came later than the get the idea. I posted them in no logical order. The cover images are on the left and the inside images are on the right. One of them is written as my dog Max. One is written to my grandpa, who lives in Florida. I'm not exactly sure why I have it here. Enjoy.

I had left a friend's house early one morning to discover that the house across the street had been torn down. Two yellow excavators creaked in the dirt as their metal shrank in the cold. I could have sworn that house was there the day before. It couldn't have happened during the night. That seemed too quick and strange a time to break down something so large and so personal. And I probably would have heard it happening.

It was after that thought when a sharp pain ran up my spine. After a stretch, I started shuffling down the street towards my car. I wanted to see how long I could last without hearing someone speak.
