#371: Color Grading

July 2, 2009

Notes from the Manager

In case you're not up on your new movies (or don't live in the States or something), the movie they're watching is Michael Mann's Public Enemies, which stars Johnny Depp as John Dillinger, opposite Christian Bale as Melvin Purvis, the man in charge of the investigation that kind of just killed him instead of actually bothering to bring him to justice. (Oops.) Here's the trailer:

The use of handheld digital video cameras on Public Enemies has caused something of a movie-geek controversy, in part because some people think it's inappropriate to use digital video on a period film at all (which I think is silly) and in part because some people think the movie looks like shit.

Me, I'll save my comments for Monday, after Lydia and the gang have had a chance to discuss it first, but I will say this: if you don't mind the way it looks, the story is terrific, and the actors are great.

The Sessions: Voice Acting in Anime and Video Games

Thursday, February 11, 2016

This flyer design (including the illustrations, obviously) was a quick freelance project created for Chris Rager, the (English dub) voice of Hercule in Dragon Ball Z and Torgue in Borderlands 2 — a.k.a. the two characters shown here, if you’re unfamiliar with them. He’s starting up a class on voice acting next month and wanted something eye-catching to help promote it.

I met Chris at a convention a year or two ago (that’s why he called me to do this!), and he’s a blast, so if you’re in the Plano, Texas, area and interested, definitely look into this course. The first class runs from March 15th–April 5th, Tuesday evenings from 7–10 pm. (Four classes for three hours each class.)

I don’t know any more details, so just read the flyer!

If nothing else, I thought you guys might like the illustration.
