Chemical Gallery Photo's

Sorry that this is being posted so late.  I had wanted to collect photo's from some of the visitors.  On May 3rd the chemical gallery opened.  It was a great night and a very successful show.  There was also a closing reception on May 11th.

For any backers reading this.  I am still getting things prepared to mail out the plaques.  I hope to do that in the coming weeks.

Chemical Kitchen WIP

I just received some samples of Chemical Kitchen from my effects assistance Sarah Hinesly.  They're looking really good. There's just a few corrections to be made before I can put the footage together into a final edit.

In chemical kitchen the host, Antimony Bourdain, teach viewers about how elements formed in starts, supernovae, and particle colliders.

I have a space now!

It seems like I finally have a definitive time and location for The Chemical Gallery.  I've been talking to the Linda Hall library for the last two months and it was beginning to seem like it wouldn't work out.  However, we found a space and time that worked for us both.  It's a bit smaller than I would have hoped and the duration is shorter that I would have liked but I'm happy to have an art gallery in a library.  They've given me a diagram of the space so that I can plan out the arrangement.  
As you can see it's sort of a tight space for the amount of work I plan to show, but I think it will be sufficient.  It does hae the benefit of having two days so that will help with the flow of the space.

Opening night will be Friday May 3rd from 5-7 PM.  The show will remain open during regular library hours from May 3rd to Saturday May 11th.

I should say this isn't entirely certain yet, but it's close.  They'll be sending me a written agreement sometime this week.  Once it's in writing and signed off on I'll feel safe advertising the date.

Kickstarter Rewards are In the Mail

I didn't get pictures of all of them before mailing them but here's the DvD, Cards, Buttons, and Shirts.  I think they're looking great.

They're all in the mail now and donors should have their rewards before the end of the month.  The holidays may slow down the delivery though.

The Parts of The Atom

Last week I film the segments for The Parts of the Atom. This was all done under a black light.  Much of this will be composited in after effects but I'm not getting into post production until the spring.  Here are some stills.

Shadow Puppets

I'm done making and filming the shadow puppets for my "ancient elements" video.  Here's some screen shots.

I won't be editing this until early next semester.  Currently I'm focused on production.  I'm trying to get one video shot each weekend for the next few weeks.
