  1. The great thing is that there's resources such as Skype now that would allow for real time lessons and whatnot.
  2. As I was reading your post I couldn't help but think of Axanar and then you mentioned it. They got something really incredible going on. Next pay cheque I fully intend to support, especially after the 20 minute prelude they released. Sorry for the OT
  3. This is all really fantastic advice and I highly appreciate it! It's late so I won't make a big long post, but it's quite obvious to me that my expectations are very low haha. You guys are here spewing numbers like 20 bucks an hour and I'm here thinking I'll be lucky to get 20 bucks for a project. But like I said, this is all just in a consideration/fact-finding phase. Just a way to make a little money on the side of my (minimum wage) management job. Like it's not even a goal for me to start up a full blown business. Spent my whole life watching my parents fail at that, but I'm at least interested in the prospect of new challenges. Again thanks for the advice so far! Like I said it's late and I'll re-read everything with a clearer head in the morning!
  4. Ah! Very clever thinking! And as I understand it, if it's not an "official" business, I can do it all under the table. Unless by some miracle I make more than I'm expecting, in which case i can claim it at year end as other income.
  5. So over the past year or two, I've started volunteering my services to some fan productions. So far it's been a great experience and I feel a sense of accomplishment as I'm now completing projects on a very regular basis. Now I'm considering expanding that practice into something that might make a few dollars here and there. I by no means am looking to quit my day job. Rather, make a little bit of money on the side doing what I already do in my spare time. Thing is, I'm not really sure where to start. Also I'm not entirely sure how to best "get my name out there" so to speak. I'm not looking to do big things, rather target smaller groups that need a bit of work done here and there. I have started work on a website which you can view at www.dwflash.com. If anyone has any advice or pointers or anything, please let me know. Likewise, is this viable?
  6. I find it helps when you have to do things for other people. Whenever I do work solely for myself, it rarely ever gets completed. But if I have a client, then that almost always gets completed haha.
  7. If you use the posting box at the bottom, that's "Quick Reply". Clicking More Reply Options puts you into the full editor.
  8. Sorry Robert, I missed your post! From what I understand, the bulk of the audio that was recorded ended up being too poor to salvage. Windy day or something I guess. Randy also likes to push himself to try new things and ADR is his most recent self-challenge.
  9. Happy birthday Gerald! Thanks for all you've done over the years!!
  10. Thanks! Haha yeah, that would be a tricky and interesting challenge! I'm slated for one more vignette from Season 2 which is purely space effects, so back to the poly world on that one. Then I'm slated for two vignettes in Season 3. I'll have more composite work in Season 3 as part of their main set is now a CG component that I have to build and then integrate into the footage whenever it appears. Then I have a big one. A full blown episode near the end of season 3 which has approximately 26 VFX shots of all sorts. Everything from space shots, to composite work, to CG set work (though my brother may paint that set and we'll just use his matte). Then there's going to be more creature work in I think Season 4 which is partially filmed now. Though I think it's actually a mechanical creature, so that should be fun! And in between that, i'm getting a video game ready for public beta testing and working on special effects for a Star Trek group based in Newfoundland! And when I'm not doing that, I'm helping to manage a movie theatre for 35 hours a week So busy busy busy haha.
  11. Thanks!! Here's a (quirky) behind the scenes vid I put together regarding the creature effects for this ep! DkwyDKdJvRA
  12. It's finally been released! The most recent vignette from Project: Potemkin. This features an alien creature which I had to build, rig, animate and composite into the already shot footage. Many thanks to Robert, Rodney, Mark and a few others for helping out with advice on this one!! [vimeo]98791336[/vimeo] http://vimeo.com/98791336
