Hi Everyone: Wall E coming our way.

Hello to everyone.

How are you all?
 
This friday, wall-e is coming up in cinema halls. Cool man.... Its one of the most awaited fims. Also most exciting part about the film will be not the film only but also the short film that they will show before the film. The new short film named 'Presto' has already earned lot of praise and is done in the style of the old warner bros animation style. Its directed by Doug Sweetland and famous animator at Pixar.

Update on my film

Hi everyone.

With what I feel must be my weakness during the creation of animation, I realize its actually the toughest part of making things look organic, More skin than rubber. its a tough thing to do. But still knowing your mistake can be treated as half solution.

Lets see what comes out. Right now I m splining (polishing) my animation.

Will soon disclose the Releasing date of the shot.

Thanks
Love

Spiritual: Mind Set: Graduating from life

Mind Set: Graduating from life
30 Jul 2008, 0059 hrs IST, JERRY BOONE,TNN
Mind set
 
What should you do with rest of your life? About three thousand years ago, a Jewish king named Solomon aired his opinion on the subject. As he put it, he "wanted to see what was worthwhile for men to do under heaven during the few days of their lives".

Solomon was an interesting character, and he had a lot going for him. He was intelligent. Indeed, this sageking still has the reputation of being the "wisest man who ever lived".

He also had the means to do practically anything he wanted to do. In his old age, Solomon found time to reflect on his lifelong experiences. And he passed his thoughts down in writing. He starts off by telling us that everything in life is meaningless.

"I know, because I have seen it all. You name it, I've done it. I not only did it, but I did it in a big time, kingly fashion. I denied myself nothing, nothing at all. But looking back on it now, I can tell you none of it amounted to a hill of beans."

"What do you think is worthwhile in life? The pursuit of pleasure? I had seven hundred wives of royal birth and three hundred concubines. I had music from men and women singers; all the wine I could drink; and a palace full of people falling all over themselves doing everything they could think of to get in my good graces.

"Sure, it is enjoyable up to a point. But when you get everything you want whenever you want it, you quickly discover how meaningless pleasure really is.

"Here is what I've learned: Whenever you seek pleasure, pleasure eludes you. The only way you may find pleasure is by seeking something else first. It could be nothing more than paying someone a sincere compliment , or giving someone a hand with an unpleasant task.

"The idea is that when you least expect it, happiness suddenly bubbles up like a well inside of you. You don't find pleasure; pleasure finds you. Pursuing pleasure is like chasing after the wind.

"If not pleasure, then what? Wealth? Do you think you should dedicate your life to the pursuit of wealth? I had houses, vineyards, gardens , parks, fruit trees, reservoirs watering groves of trees, slaves, more herds and flocks than anyone in Jerusalem, horses and chariots, and more silver and gold than anyone can imagine. I had it all. But if money and things could buy happiness, then I would have been the happiest man that ever lived.

"But what did I discover? Just this: Whoever loves money never has money enough; whoever loves wealth is never satisfied with his income. A rich man doesn't even sleep well at night. He's too worried about his money.

"Money has its uses, but don't lose perspective. We were born naked, and when we die, we're going to take with us just what we brought into this world. Whatever we acquire will be left to someone who had not worked for it."

If neither pleasure nor wealth are worthwhile pursuits, how about the scholarly pursuit of knowledge?

Ok...An update on the film.

Hello Friends

So finally I have managed to give you all an update on what is going with my film right now. Its going well.

I have just finished blockin it. Though I have another pass left. I am happy that till now it is coming out as I expected. Lets see how it goes on. One major problem that I might face is the length. I have already exceeded the length limit allowed to us. Its the hunger to make it more and more entertaining and clear that is stretching it 3 times its limit :). Yes.. three time hehehaa.. Lets hope it gets over ontime.


An Image for you.



Thanks for your wishes.

Love
Sandeep.

Making of Notes : Rare Delicacy - 1stJuly08

Hi let me start with My making of Rare Delicacy notes here. Here in I will discuss what I am doing everyday during the construction of my short film.


Date 1st July08



Today, I got a major help. After hesitating a lot. We went to the near by vet Dr.P K Arora, He has a clinic here in sector 17, Faridabad. I told him about my film and references required. He is so sweet. He offered help immediately. Nearly half of the credit goes to my cousin, Karan for pushing me to visit him. Although I know Karan cares nothing about the film, But he love dogs. He is so crazy that he even asked the doctor if he had any pups thr and he cud play with them for a while. Really man this guy is Crazy about dogs.



Well then today was the golden day. We went to doctors clinic about 12 pm and he was thr. He told his servant to get his dog. I asked him, which dog he had. He said proudly " Labrador" I said he must be very intelligent (as labras are considered to be very intelligent and friendly), He said that this labra was not that intelligent but was very naughty." I asked him, "naughty? Naughty in which sense?" He answered," Naughty in sense that he an eat ur hand if u try to feed him". And yes U all r right! We also had the same expression. Eyes wide open and kannu ( karan) and me, staring at each other. I could also see Karans love for dogs vanishing and a scared feeling taking over! :).



Finally our eye contact broke with a heavy "bow wow". Next moment we were behind the doctor. Trying to hide. The dog entered, he was a golden labrador. Nearly 4 ft in height. Hi face was so big that he could really chew our hand inclusive of our arm.



The doctor understood the shot and started to help us. We were scared but recorded the Videos we required. All in all it was a gr8 experience. Different people came to the clinic, along with thr dogs. We stood thr and recorded reference from many of them. Licking, Wagging, Tongue, Mouth, ears etc. I hope they prove helpful to me while animating too..:) Time to filter them with gr8 ones and not so gr8 ones...



:) Then after another funday we were back.



P.s. Ohh forgot to share. Few dayz back, Karan also helped me gettin a Pug ( Hutch Dog) from a nearby aunty. Karan aka Kannu, knows everyone who has a dog. As I told u, he love dogs more than girls. (Stop involving Physics! ;) So that pug. Though that pug was a help. But frankly speaking, He is not a complete dog. I mean no face, like he got hit by a truck on his face and it has gone flat, Then the tail, even the tongue, nothing as a common dog. SO after tiring myself on how to take him as close to my dog 3d model named Pawn, I had a very stinky, smelly, shitty(though karan helped with that, He is awesome, I love him), Hairy day. But all well that ends well. So now I am here, In my work area studying him, within the safety of my monitor... yahoooooooo

Busy busy busy!
