One week to go before I head back to Singapore.
Stayed in Irvine for most of the trip so far, it's been a good time for my recovery and at the same time for sorting out plans for the year.
The project I was working day and night on more or less wrapped just before I left. It was a campaign for Canon Singapore. I'd meant to blog about it a little sooner to talk about the seminar I'd be speaking for them, but before I had the chance the signup was already full. For that I want to apologize... I feel pretty fail about it. But I guess there'll be other opportunities in the future. ^^;
You can check out the images, some behind the scenes and an interview here.
Watched A Prophet's screening at the Writers Guild Theatre in L.A.. Good film, crime films aren't usually my thing, but I enjoyed it. There was a certain subtlety in the storytelling that gave it a lot of strength. The cast was strong, scores apt, nothing that sticks out negatively or lacking except somewhere towards the end there was a part where I found slightly lengthy.
Also did an interview yesterday afternoon where we actually finished a whole tape. I was told that I should talk about anything I felt like talking about so I can look back 20 years down the road and laugh at the myself from today. I thought it was a good idea.
And for the first time I wasn't told some 1208345 times during filming to brush my hair out of my eyes. It made me happy.
I received cake, cream puffs, soundtracks and even a thank you card. I love the fans here. Thank you for making me feel so loved.
Visited Blizzard Entertainment's HQ today. Saw some production stuff from Diablo III and StarCraft II (beta started today and looks great!). Diablo seems massively promising, there were some amazing sculptures that reminded me of Beksinski's artworks so I got really excited for a while. And Brom's artworks for WoW look so so badass.
I'd been looking forward to Saturday's meetup. A lot of people had been telling me great things about Griffith Observatory. Today I found out that the weather forecast says there'd be rain. Alas, it seems like a trademark for my meetup days to have high chances of rainfall somehow. I guess we'll just have to spend more time indoors and forego the outdoor photos... T_T
