Ashland Film Festival, Charlton Heston RIP

Just got out of a morning screening at the Ashland Independent Film Festival--very cool and inspiring. It's nice to see people standing in the rain waiting for tickets (last night) and busting out on a Sunday morning to pack a 500 seat film showing. SOU's own Trisha Johansen won the Launch competition for student film makers with her beautiful hand-drawn short animation Deepsong. Another studly SOU filmmaker, Casey Pyke has his crazed 17 minute green screen, 2d-3d-live action sci-fi short, M.I.C. screening tomorrow. Looking forward to seeing it on the big screen. It's nice to work with students that freak you out with their talent and discipline. Keep it rollin'.
The giant shirtless man, passed away yesterday. But he left his mark. Scott Raedeke at 8-bit Ghost provides an insightful eulogy.

I think this is one of my favorite drawings that you've done, hi-larious. This actually captures last night's ActionScript session from a third person perspective. I'm going to the store to find Omega Man on DVD right now.
